Transmission problem
2001 Oldsmobile Aurora 6 cyl Automatic

Hi.

We are looking for a used transmission for a 2001 Olds Aurora and have noticed we need an ID code of DCB, DDB or DGB. We gave the VIN to a dealer, and he came back with a code of MN3. We said that wasn’t one of the choices, then he came back with a 1DCB. So, we are wondering if a DDB transmission can be used in place of a DCB one. A mechanic told us that probably the only difference is the gear ratio?

Thanks!

MN3 is a 4T65-E, MH1 is a 4T80-E, here is the difference, this is the 4T65-E, A torque converter with an electronically controlled capacity clutch (ECCC)

This transmission is equipped with an ECCC. The pressure plate does not fully lock to the torque converter cover. Instead, the pressure plate maintains a small amount of slippage, about 20 RPM, in SECOND, THIRD and FOURTH gears, depending on the vehicle application. ECCC was developed to reduce the possibility of noise, vibration or chuggle caused by torque converter clutch (TCC) apply. Typical apply speeds are 49-52 km/h (30-32 mph) in THIRD gear and 65-73 km/h (40-45 mph) in FOURTH gear. Full lockup is available at highway speeds on some applications. This is a 4T80-E, The 4T80-E is a fully automatic front wheel drive electronically controlled transmission. The 4T80-E provides four forward ranges including overdrive. The PCM controls shift points by means of two shift solenoids. Three gear-type oil pumps supply the oil pressure. The PCM regulates oil pressure by means of a transmission pressure control solenoid. The PCM controls the shift schedule and the TCC apply rates. Many sensor inputs also influence the shift schedule and the TCC apply rates. This difference is how the torque converter locks up.

The question I asked was about the difference between a DCB transmission and a DDB transmission on a 2001 Olds Aurora, but you did not once mention either DCB or DDB? You only mentioned that MN3 is 4T65-E and MH1 is 4T80-E. Since the dealer said MN3 is DCB (4T65-E), are you telling me that DDB also means MH1 (4T80-E)?
