Chad, The 97 E4OD is a good transmission, the 98 is better but you should be
ok with the 97.Just keep your fliud changed every 35,000 or better. How do I
know this information? I work for a off road racing team that does all the R&D
for ford powertrain engineering. I see all the updates and the 97 trans. has
alot of them. they supply us with Castrol Synthetic ATF, They say it is the
best. I know the shift points were changed for 98, If you don't like how your
trans shifts I would suggest a shift kit. Good Luck!!!! Check out our
website!!! EnduroRacing.com Mike.

Subject: Improving the E4OD

Well, the response has been overwhelming, so here's a reprint of the
article from the magazine (Here without permission):

- - ------------------------------------------------------------------------


BOMB PROOFING FORD's E4OD

Jim Galatioto, founder of ATO, has over 30 years of experience in
working with automatic transmissions. He has devoted much of his career
to developing new parts to improve the performance and longevity of
automatic transmissions and valve bodies, and as a long-time fan of
Ford products, has done extensive development work with the C4 and
C6 units, among others.

Therefore, it was only natural that he would turn his attention to the
Ford E4OD transmission after it became available. In fact, it wasn't
out for too long before he had his first chance to work with one.
Some common problems detected were: broken overdrive planetaries,
blown snap rings off the overdrive clutch pistons, broken gears, worn
out sprags, broken rear sprags, forward clutch rings wiped out,
instability of the center supports, overdrive input shaft broken,
and premature bushing wear.
