Yes, any transmission from 92-02 will work. Provided its from an s series.

Best Answer

No they will not... Unless you have a car with a manual transmission and are swapping in another manual transmission, then you can use any S-series transmission, 91-02. Now if you have cruise control, you need to keep the same transmission that the PCM needs, or else it will not work with the different gear ratios (See:

Now if you have an automatic transmission, youd have to choose the correct transmission that goes with your car. Again, refer to that website: Or else youd have to swap pcms. Its a lot more complicated than David knows...


The number of gears in those transmissions are the only difference. They never changed to gear ratios in a Saturn.
