Have a 99 Taurus. Evidently Ford uses 2 transaxel types on this car,
AX4N or AX4S for the 3.0 engines. The type transaxel is supposed to be
on a tag over the bell housing but on mine it has decomposed in engine
oil. My book says the TransAx ID is also on the "Main valve cover where
it bolts to the unit". How do I know which one I've got? <<<<<<<
If the engine is the 24v Duratec then it's the AX4N. If you've got the
Vulcan engine then it could be either the 4N or 4S.
