Question type: Maintenance & Repair

07 engine and trans swap

Going in was 2011 p71 engine trans

Little did they tell me there was NO FILTER
IN or that I would need to change all 4
solenoids from The 07 into the 11

So 12 miles down the road with the wrong
solenoids in and NO FLITER I'm pushing
4500 rpms at 50-60 mph no shift

Went back re dropped pan added
solenoids swapped harness valve body
and gasket looked fine
Mercon 5 levels fine but end result ?
All i got is reverse and a winding trans that
won't go into drive

Call me if anyone cares

Tracy hasn't been around in a long time. But from the sounds of it, the trans might need to be rebuilt or replaced. A whining sound is not good, you need to talk to a person who works on transmissions to get you going again. Hope you find that person, good luck!
