Question Automatic Transmission Question

Hey all,

I have a question regarding automatic transmissions in the S-Series. I think I may know the answer; but was wondering if someone who has done a tranny swap can verify?

The guy that I recently bought parts from off of the 91 SC that he had (which I cleaned the interior out of for parts) asked me if the auto trans from that 91 SC would swap into a 97 SL2?

The 97 SL2 is his sister in law's car. I told him that I wasn't positive; as the engines changed a bit over the years; and as I have not taken a motor or transmission, physically out of any of my S-Series cars...

Can this be done:

Auto Transmission from a 91 SC into a 97 SL2?

I don't think it can; because of the differences in the engines/wiring harnesses, etc.

Can anyone verify? The 91 SC that I pulled parts off of had 116K miles on it; the 97 SL2 that he wants to put the trans into has 131K on it.

I told him I would do some research and find out to get back to him.

Thank you for your input. Are the electrical connections on the sides of the auto trans plug n play?

He will need a trans from a 93-98,and it should be a MP-7 for DOHC,or
for SOHC engine he will need a MP-6 (gear ratios )
91 and 92 can be interchanged inside those year cars ,with some mods.

Have A Great Day , it is YOUR choice !

I'm pretty sure that a '94 up will swap. Some '92s will swap with '91s, some will swap with '93s depending on vin. I don't know what vin determines that. A '91 will not swap with a '97. Of course, you can't swap an SOHC transmission into a DOHC or vice versa.

...
There is nothing more frightening than ignorance in action.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
