Default What tranmission do I have?

I have a 92 ranger 5spd 3.73 gears.

I need to find out if I have a ford or Mitsubishi transmission so that I can change the fluids inside. How do I find that out? Will there be a stamp?

Since you have the 2.3 Lima you have the M5OD. Use ATF!

How sure are you about that?
I don't want to have a serious mishap here....

How about loosening the drain bolt just enough to get some on your finger. That's a common sense way to figure it out for yourself.
If it's grease then sell the truck because a freaking idiot owned it.

It was leaking just a bit... enough to let me see that it was ATF.

Thank you for your help.

From what I can find, the A4LD and M5OD (and upgraded versions) were used from 1989 on.
