Ford Workshop Manual - Auto Transmission


Two types of automatic transmissions are installed in the Ford Scorpio, although they look identical. The DOHC 8V, 16V and DOHC2300 16V, and the Cosworth 24V all use the A4LDE, which is fully controlled by the EECV powertrain control module (PCM). The V6 12V Cologne engine and the 2.5 VM diesel use the A4LDe autobox, a hybrid electronic box in which only the 4th gear and the torque converter lock-up clutch is controlled by the PCM, in this case the older EECIV.

The automatic on the 2.5 diesel was only introduced in 1997, not even a year before the production ended, so these will be very rare.
