    Transmission swap

    Has no one run into this issue at all? From what I've seen, the transmissions in these things is known for problems. I have been trying to use FORScan to see what options can be changed as far as the transmission goes but I haven't gotten it to work correctly either, for some reason I can't get it to read the vehicle configuration. I know this isn't the place for FORScan issues so I am more or less just trying to see if anyone has done or been party to a transmission swap from something like a Focus. I can't really buy a remanufactured one right now. Plus it's easy to find Focus transmissions at parts recyclers so that's why I'm interested in this. Any help would be appreciated.

    Transmission swap

    I’ve got a 2013 Transit Connect that the transmission recently started acting up. It looks to need replacing so I’ve been looking for a transmission to put in it. I see that the Ford Focus has the same transmission so I was wondering if it’s a direct swap out. I can’t find much info online about it other than they share the same model number (4f27e). Is the gearing the same in them? If they are basically the same unit, will I have to tow it to a dealer to program something in the ECM? I have someone that can do the swap but he doesn’t have anyway to program anything into the computer if that’s required. I’ve seen on here people talking about putting a manual in the TC and while I would love that, I’m not looking for that involved of an install so I’m going to stick with an auto. Any insight to this would be greatly appreciated.
