Tranny Swap?

I want to pick up a beater, but I would also like to learn some mechanicial skills too. Is it possible to take a tranny from an SPI and mate it to a Zetec? Here is an ad that I found and I would like to do it, if it's possible.

My memory says no, but check in the "Engine & trans. swap" area to be sure...

There was a different Manual trans., as well as a different Automatic for the SPI cars...

Moved your thread for ya to the appropriate section so you can get some better answers to your question.



If I remember right, weren't the automatics the same tranny in both cars? You could probably swap the bell housings out if they are detachable. I can't remember if they are or not. Surly someone will chime in with better info than I have. Also if they are both SPI's then swap the one with the good motor or vice versa.

Hey I'm new here to this site and need help. I need to know if a trans is compatible with my 03 zts. My trans number is 3s4p7000 da, the one I want to swap it with is 1s4p7000 da. I think the 1 and the 3 are for model year but not sure. Have been told it will and won't work by several junk yards. My car was built 07-03 which makes it a later build. Any info would be appreciated
