That is unknown territory to me. I'm 90% sure it would work, but their might be a minor difference in the torque converter stall or something.

If it was down 1.5quarts, it has a leak somewhere. Even being down that much on fluid, it can cause slipping issues. The shift solenoids control the shifts, not the clutches. I'd try some Lucas trans fix before anything else.

They are compatible. Anything from a 2000-2002 SSEi will work in your 2000 SSEi. 2003 will NOT work.

Yes, only the SSEi uses the 140amp.

Sounds like a failing alternator. Your car will run at 14v even if your battery is junk. However, a failing alternator can cause a weak battery to fail completely. If the battery is already 5 years old, replace both. With this weather the last thing you want is a dead car.

Absolutely its made to be used seriously, though it was very finicky and took a lot of work even to keep the smoke flowing for a couple minutes. After I built it, I never actually used it for any diagnosing purposes. The rust on the filler neck can be cleaned up, but I've found its just easier and m...

I real smoke test needs to be done by an EVAP smoke machine costing hundreds if not thousands of dollars.

If there is any rust on the filler neck, just replace it as that surely the problem.

They come out the top, so the rear dash piece needs to come out. In order to get that out, you need to remove the C-pillar trims and also the back of the rear seat. It's no small task just for a speaker change. They are 6x9's.

Get a scantool that can read live data and then watch the misfires to see which cylinder(s) is your culprit. That will eliminate a lot of diagnosing. Once you figure out what cylinder, pull the spark plug wire off the coil to see if its getting spark. If you have spark there and you have new plugs ...

Bleed off any fuel pressure at the schrader valve. Remove the 4-10mm nuts that hold the fuel rail down and then pry it up. You can leave the fuel lines connected. Release the clips and then wiggle/pull out the injectors.

Nothing 2000+ will be compatible. It was a complete platform redesign.

This is a discontinued part, no dealers will have it. You'll need to source it used somewhere. It can come from a Bonneville or LeSabre.

Wheel bearings can sometimes be tricky to determine what side is bad. You are talking entirely about the left front, have you looked into the right front? I always replace wheel bearings in pairs because if one side failed, the other is probably on its way out.
