Power Stroke Transmission Guide

Ford Automatic & Manual Transmission Ratios, Model Years

With few exceptions, identifying the transmission behind a diesel equipped Ford F-Series is as easy as finding your model year in the chart below. In the case of the ZF 5 speed (S5-42 and S5-47), a close ratio model can be differentiated from a wide ratio model by examining the identification tag on the driver's side of the transmission case. There, under "Total Ratio" the ratio spread will be listed. Some transmissions can be found in gasoline engine applications, but it's important to note that transmissions are not interchangeable between Ford diesel and gasoline applications.
