Re: E4OD same as 4R100....?
Yes they are the same. The name change was to conform to ISO standards, the same thing was done with the other Ford transmissions, GM too. I.e. AOD-E became 4R70W.
Ford made the name change at the same time they made some design changes, which will lead some folks to argue till they are blue in the face that the names indicate different transmissions. However there were changes made all through production from 1989 to present. Ford just used a convenient cutoff.
Now there is no reason to "swap" your E4OD for a newer transmission, with a new name, just to do it. However if you needed to replace a failed unit, it can be done provided all the electronics match up (there were changes in the solenoid packs and TCC over the years).
