my transmission

my tranny is well and truly on its way out, this morning i was driving down the highway, stopped at a red light and went to take off and it was just reving, then out of nowhere it slammed into gear

im going to buy a rebuilt one, but my question is what is the difference between the auto's from an el ghia compared to an el gli

thanks

The magna is nearly dead...i need a new car...AGAIN!!...why did i sell the EL??

Re: my transmission

ahh ok, so basically i can use any trans out of an el but if i use the trans comp thats in the car now then it will be the same as the xr6 trans?

or am i way off the mark?

sorry for all the stupid questions guys, i just want the car to be mechanically perfect for a while, i dont want to lose any power by using a wrong part, if that makes sence lol

The magna is nearly dead...i need a new car...AGAIN!!...why did i sell the EL??

Re: my transmission

u can use any 4spd auto from any eseries judging by karl's comment. but the EL Ghia computer will have it act exactly like your current trans.

any one know if the ratios are differnt in any of the 4spds? i assume they're all the same.
