Orange marks....hmmm..could mean it came from another junkyard. IE-- bought it from a junkyard, put it in a car, totaled that car, then sold it to a junkyard where it was marked again...Its not factory, i just swapped my transmission out and only thing i saw was the yellow marks from the junkyard i bought it from. All the other tranny´s i was lookin at were the same way...U might have bought a core tranny....I´d get it tested before u put all the work to put it in. Took me 9 hours to put mine in, i would have been pissed if it didnt work when i was done w/ it.

also, if ya need a tutorial on swapping the tranny, let me know, i just did mine about 3 weeks ago...

It came off an escort. I watched them take it off, It was a fresh pull too

make sure there are no cracks in the case or burnt fluid. the yards I dealt with were pretty good about testing engines and transmissions before they pulled them.
