The transmission in my 1997 6cyl Dakota has broken so I am wanting to swap it with the transmission from a 2000 4cyl Dakota. Will I be able to do this or would I have to find a different tranny? Or could I take the engine from the 1997 (6 cylinder 3.9 L automatic) dodge dakota and put it into the 2000 (4 cylinder 2.5L standard) dodge dakota?

You have to make sure that the bolt pattern is correct and the wiring harness for computer is the same otherwise it won't work. You also need a torque converter for a 6 cylinder
