Default 99 Ranger 3.0L auto Trans issues

Hi guys, new to the forum here.

My buddy has a 99 Ranger 3.0 4x4 auto trans 189k. It had some issues where it where it won’t go into reverse. I’ve read this is somewhat common on these transmissions. I’m trying to help him out whether that means help with a replacement from a yard, buying a new one online, or directing him with good advice.

Shops in our area are quoting $2400 for a fully rebuilt model and $1100 for just fixing the reverse. Is there a good reputable places online to buy from?

For starters, I’m having trouble pinpointing if it is a 4r44e or a 5r55e. Different places say different things for the 99 model year. So that’s a good place to start.

Anyway, any help and foresight would be awesome. Thanks!

If you can feel it shift three times its a 4r, if four shifts its a 5r.
