My gf's mom has a '93 Escort wagon w/ the 2.2L and auto trans. My gf just got a '97 Tracer wagon (also w/ a 2.2 auto) as a hand-me down from her grandma -- and then she drove it into some guy's Cavalier the 3rd day she had it. It's probably totalled... it took out the whole front end and blew both airbags. It has about 80k miles.

Anyway, it sounds like the trans is going out of the '93... it won't shift even if it's revved out really high, until the motor gets warm and then it seems to shift ok. It also takes a while to engage when u shift from park to drive or reverse. The problem has been getting progressively worse over the last couple weeks, and the car is basically undrivable right now. It has about 125k miles on it, and the engine burns a little oil. I can also hear the lifters ticking.

So... can I take the trans from the Tracer and put it in the Escort? I just read 92gt5sp's post about tranny swaps and that was very helpful. But I guess my concern is that the '93 has OBD 1 and the '97 has OBD 2, so the electronics will be different. Will that affect the trans? What is the possibility of swapping both the engine and trans at the same time?

The 93 Escort has a 1.9 not a 2.2.
The 97 Tracer has a 2.0 SPI not a 2.2.
The 2.0 tranny is differnt, well at least the 5 speeds from 93 to 97 are differnet.
The motor from the 97 can go into the 93, but I'm not 100% sure about the tranny, you might need to swap the PCM also, but it "should" all bolt up.
