Changes through the Years Summary

the connectors were changed starting in 95 for both the mlp senser and the solenoid pack. other than that they are interchangeable; the internals were changed in 95 for the better;in 95 the e4od got an upgraded ball bearing center support, revised o/d planet and input shaft and much better F5 casting pump. there were also some sprag upgrades. i wouldnt bother with a pre 95 e4od; the 99-up 4r100 uses pwm. no e4od uses pwm. and it refers to how the torque converter clutch is applied....has nothing to do with firmer shift points; the gas and deisel cases are different. they wont interchange..."

Solenoid Body Diode; "...When the solenoids turn off the collapsing magnetic field can send a spike back to the ecc. To protect the ecc they put diodes in the solenoid pack to block the spikes. In 95 they moved the diodes to the ecc, so if you have a pre-95 ecc and a 95-96 solenoid pack there are no diodes and you can blow out your ecc. I believe that was also when they changed the wiring to the weather plug, so you need to be sure that you have the right year solenoid pack and that the wire harness is wired for the 92. If either is incorrect you may have blown out your ecc..."
