I have found a 97 Rebuilt Avalon Tranny for two hundred dollars On Craigs list and was hoping it would fit my 2000 Avalon thats slipping really bad. What parts would I have to change over to the 97 tranny to the 2000 to make it work if even possible or vise versa?
I'm glad I asked. You just saved me a two hour trip and 200 dollars. Now I have to decide what to do from here. I have the engine and tranny removed right now. I have torn down the engine and the engine is getting machined / checked at the machine shop and I'm going to rebuild from there. I have the old transmission and bought a used transmission that I was told had 22,*** miles on it.After I received it I did a Car Fax and found out that it had 105,*** miles on it.The junk yard refused to return it unless there is something wrong with it after install.Should I put the 105,*** mileage tranny in or have my slipping tranny with 220,000 rebuilt or the 105,*** rebuild? Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for all the help. Last thing. If I butt my engine block out of my 2000 Avalon up with the 97 Avalon's Tranny and it fits and connects will it may work? What could happen if it all fits together and I drive it but the gearing it wrong?
