I've got a 1998 cadillac deville that I wrecked and had

Customer Question

I've got a 1998 cadillac deville that I wrecked and had fixed. The transmission will not reverse and will run forward when in reverse gear. Any fix to that or will it have to be replaced? Also If it does have to be replaced I've found one but it is a vin 9 and mine is a vin Y will that do or will there have to be a lot more changes in order to make work? The vin 9 transmission is from a similar cadillac, same year and model just different vins.

HI,

Yes, the transmission will bolt up and work fine and wont need any programming. The difference between the y and 9 vins are in the engine configuration and horsepower it produces, not the transmission or the engine to transmission bolt pattern
