    what i the differences between these's two transmissions


    from a glance it looks like i could use a 1997 trans if i put my 1996 range sensor and harness on it ?

    plus the 1997 has a kick down cable like my 1996?

    I have asked this question and never have gotten a firm answer.
    I too am interested in whether '97 1st year 3rd gen and earlier 2nd gen auto trannys are interchangeable.
    '98 and up are clearly different.
    Yes, '97 has kickdown cable.
