    I have not changed the trans oil on an AOD trans such as on your car. If in doubt about a part get one from a Ford/Lincoln dealer since they have one that will fit properly and be of good quality to last a long time. The AODE (4R70W) trans has a magnet in the bottom of the pan which you can see in this writeup: http://www.lincolnvscadillac.com/tec...Filter-Change/ but I don't know if your AOD had this thick washer type magnet or not. If it did then you would likely see a mounting place for it and it just sits there. Your Ford/Lincoln dealer can likely confirm this and get you the proper magnet.

    Current practice is to flush the trans on a regular basis to keep the oil clean and some dealers also change the filter too although Ford says the filters will last many flushes. The problem with just dropping the pan is that only drains a few liters of the total capacity. The torque converter holds a lot but may not have a drain plug. Does yours?

    Good luck.
