Hi members,

We'll I lost first gear today on the SSEI. Car only has 130K miles. It came as a surprise. There were no warning signs. I looked up the trans on car-part.com. I live in Maine so the closest one is in Mass, about a 4-5 hours drive. I could do it. The car has traction control and of course the supercharger.

It looks like it is a one year only trans that fits my car. Would it be possible to install a trans from a plain Bonneville SE (I don't care about the traction control) or is the final drive ratio different? :dontknow:

Would a trans work from a 93 with Supercharger but no traction control?

Anyone close to maine got a trans that will fit this? LOL

Warren

Driver ratio is different, and it's a weaker trans. The car won't run right and it'll break sooner.

Off to the tranny shop.......

Thanks
So it's either finding a trans from a 93 with Supercharger and traction control or taking it to the shop....

Yup.

Out of curiosity, what does your fluid look like?

It seemed to be the right color. Had a few bubbles on the end of the dipstick when I pulled it out. I check the fluid weekly.

I have an update:

I took the car out later this evening after the car had cooled off and the trans shifted ok. I just took it up the road (hill) and back. I originally noticed the problem this afternoon when I would pull up to a stop sign and the car would struggle to get going until I revved it to about 2,500 RPM's, pushing the pedal and getting no (immediate) acceleration. Almost like it wasn't releasing into first gear?

This is really confusing. I can get the trans but would like to rule out anything else so I don't end up replacing the trans if it is not needed.

Anything else I should check? Or any tests I should try?

Traction control has nothing to do with your transmission, but all SSEi's came with it, so the point is moot.

Don't 'get a trans'. Take it to a transmission shop for a diagnosis. It's free. Take it to two shops, and tell both shops that you are.

Then post here with what they said and the price quote.

Will do. I took it to work today and it was fine. Checked the dipstick when I got there and there was no foam/bubbles on the end of it. Fluid was fine. I still hear a faint whirring noise that could be related to the trans.
