Which year auto trannies interchange with 2003 2.3L?
My wife's beloved ZX5's auto tranny died at 156k miles. It's the (relatively rare) 2.3L PZEV California Duratec. She loves the car so I want to find a used tranny for it.
Can someone tell me which years and model cars have the same tranny that will drop in? Are all Duratec 2.3L auto trannies 2003 and up interchangeable?
Or, perhaps a newer 5-speed auto that will drop in (with a tranny computer?) (Car's biggest flaw IMO is the 4-speed's large 1-2 shift spacing)
