I'm having some problems deciphering my transmission ID tag. I've got the shop manual but nothing seems to match up with what is in that. Here is what I have:

F0ZR-7003-AA REP-AV
13-52-199 70045 H3103

Is the car's serial number part of the vin suppose to be on the tag???

Thanks,

JC

A cool thing about IDing Ford parts in general is that the year is the first part of the part code.

The first letter is the decade ...

"D" = 1970s
"E" = 1980s
"F" = 1990s (as in this case)

The number that is the second character is the year in that decade.

"D4" = 1974
"E8" = 1988
"F0" = 1990 (again, as seen above)

Knowing this can help a lot when cruising swap meets. Give you a rough idea what a part is. I almost bought a T5 that "was pulled from a wrecked '92 Mustang", until I saw that it was in fact, an "E8", and I want a World Class ('90 and later).

This works well for most parts made by Ford, but in some cases, it may signify when they started using a part, like a 1970 tail light in a 1972 car, etc.

The WC or World Class designation started in 1985.
