I have a 2001 for ranger and ended up purchasing a 1999 fuel filter for it is it compatible?
My car's transmission is unknown to me.

You will need to verify the fuel filter matches the outside dimension with the filter you purchased. There was a filter change in mid year so you may have the wrong filter you purchased.
