The AXOD is an automatic four speed, front wheel drive transaxle with fourth gear being overdrive. This unit is equipped with a Torque Converter Clutch which is electronically controlled by the EEC-IV computer system. Once all processor conditions are met, the torque converter may apply in either third or fourth speeds. All other automatic shifts are hydraulically controlled.
Ford Motor Company used the AXOD from 1986 thru 1990 in the Ford Taurus and the Mercury Sable, and from 1988 thru 1990 in the Lincoln Continental.
Beginning in model year 1991, the AXOD was replaced by the AXOD-E transaxle which controls line pressure , all shifts and TCC electronically. Please see the ATSG manual on the AXOD-E transaxle for more information on that unit.
