They belong to the same model group so should be compatible. You need to match the transmission codes to be sure.

Where do I look for the transmission code?
Thank you

On top of transmission housing near the front of transmission you would see a level location with F4A51 and on another line there would be the serial number.

If you are thinking of a used transmission, not a really good idea. The transmission is more than 15 years old and sealing rings goes bad when they ages. Storage is another factor that can result in failure of used transmission.

Okay thank you
Yes the car that I drive had a rebuilt transmission and stood for a few years after and now the trans is acting up, switching wrong. I was thinking of switching with another car the 2000 year it has been standing for a while to.

Quite often erratic shifting are due to faults with the valve body solenoids. Check to see if you have any trouble codes. You can try an easier way by just swapping the valve body to test if it works.

Hello
There is no check engine and I checked there is no codes. When the car is in park and I switch to drive it takes like a. One two three four and then it goes into drive gear. Same with reverse but a lil faster. It never did that before. That started happening after it stood for a few years

Yes, common if it has stood for a while. Try driving aound for a while to see if problem goes away. Do not attempt hard driving.

If it does not go away, you would need a new trans or a rebuild.

Oh yes one more thing. When I get low rpm the car dies. It happened barely before now it happens more often. And it started switching worse. Does the car dieing have to do with the tranny or it something else. Because when I make a complete stop. The car is about to die but then I can feel/ hear the gears change to low and then the car is working fine then. Idling good. Is that a trans fault yea?
