Default Auto Transmission questions 3.0L 1993 Ranger

I have a V6 3.0L 93 Ranger XL. Only had it for a few days but notice across all power bands that the transmission shifts rough. The truck has been sitting since about March of 2016 so I am going to change the transmission and filter but not sure if I should pump the entire transmission of fluids or just replace what was lost in the pan. How much fluid would I need for either of those two changes?

Also, on craigslist (i have met this guy before and bought parts) there is a guy parting out a 1996 ranger same make model as mine with a 3.0L and automatic transmission. Since 93 and 96 are two different obd's will the transmissions be different? He's selling the tranny for $150 and for a perfectly working transmission thats a little hard to pass up.

It's hard to determine what "shifts rough" is but I would check the vacuum modulator by pulling the hose off it and see if you have any fluid leak out. If so replace it. I would be leary about changing fluid with out knowing service history. And the 1993 and 1996 will not interchange in any way. 93 hydraulic operated 96 computer operated.

Thank you for the information. I accidentally knocked off a vacuum cap when I was doing the spark plugs and wires. The vacuum on the bottom part was off when I noticed it was still leaking vacuum. Im gonna replace the bottom portion of the hose when I get paid this friday to see if it fixes my transmission problem. It takes a few seconds to shift into gear even after the transmission filter change and replacing the tranny level quarts of fluid. It may be a Transmission on its way out.

Another question about the 93 to 96 transmission. Isn't there a way to knock out the electrical part of the transmission? I know on a Chevy th700 you can just not connect the electrical and it works fine on older model cars.

I have read that the internals are the exact same. Just ones older and ones electrical.
