Default 04 Edge 3.0

Hey guys

I just got this truck the other week and I don't know anything about it.

Obviously I know it has the 3.0 but thats about it.

It is a 5 speed, 2wd. Can anyone tell me what kind of transmission I have, rear axle etc?

I want to do an entire fluid change on everything since I don't know when it was last done. I did the engine oil yesterday but want to do the transmission and rear differential today.

Can anyone give me a link to a write up on both?

Rear axle code CLICK-->http://www.fordrangerforum.com/drive...xle-codes.html

Rear fluid is easy. Remove cover and drain all fluid out. Use a pump to get all of it out.

Put cover back on then locate the fill hole on the driver side. on the back side of the axle. Fill til lit starts to come out the hole.

thanks for the replies and the welcomes!

I am pretty familiar with changing Diff fluid, I did my Jeep regularly.

However, I'm new with manual transmission fluid changes. Anybody know the standard procedure with this?

EDIT: also, how can I identify my transmission?

Finally found how to identify transmission

your 04 5 speed is a M50D-R1
