Prelude manual trans markings

My bad manual transmission from a 98 prelude has px5-7 marked on the case, I bought a used one on ebay the bell housing will not mount to my car and the trans is marked px5-5. The trans. was supposed to come out of 2001 prelude. with the differnt bell housing I suspect this is not the transmission I paid for. any help would greatly be appreciated. I can't find the px5-5 or px5-7 referenced any where

U are right about the fact u got taken, it may be that the cross reference the seller used was incorrect, but in any event make him take it back and refund shipping as well or have him send the correct trans with a pre paid freight return label to ship th old one back. did u pay with paypal? if so file a dispute with them. I recently bought a set of wheels and tires, they where not as described, I filed a complaint with paypal and the seller bent over backwards to make it Right.

I have a 94 isuzu rodeo v-6. 3.2 automatic. Trans . I replaced it with a 93 automatic trans. And it will not engage in any gears any thoughts to what it might be .?

is if full of Dexron VI now? TO THE COLD MARK?
and after startup, in park, it holds the cold mark?
then rises to the hot mark.>?
so the old trans was dead, so you bought another used, trans, that is 21 years old and expect it to work great? ok....
and did you drop the pan, and replace the filter?
the pump can suck Dexron VI through a packed filter.
and while the pans is do you have the shift soleniods here.
if yes your trans has a TCM and does all shifting,
but manual mode would work if, TCM is unplugged.

so if you manually move the side shift lever. to drive, Lo or reverse
the car will not move. im I right.? (false neutrals?) right?
why not say what it does.. not just (not engage) (creeps in gear?)
does the transmission act likes its in neutral? and RPM rises fast with right foot and car fails to move?
don't use the shift lever, use the transmission side lever. to prove the trans is failing
94 rodeo.... first i must look up what trans is there.
there are 2 types. (hyradmatic, and TCM electronic)
see? and many car makes have both types same year, yes,,, that makes for online help near impossible. lacking the side plate
numbers on the ORIGINAL trans..... a fact !!!

all answers are USA cars. (USA forum it is)
I will now quote the FSM (factory serv. man.) book facts for 1994
The 4L30-E transmission, the E means , electronically shifted.
needs a working TCM to shift all gears automatically.
tcm = transmission control module, (can be by self or part of PCM)

did you adjust the shifter like the book?
see bottom photo.
if reverse is dead, then the below is set wrong or trans is bad.
(or lacks proper fluid level or the filter is packed.)
the lever is held at N, with a rubber band
and the mech, adjusts the trans lever to N.
(standard steps on all a/T boxes)

25722445-2f5dzn2kvqcmxgnp5h420nyp-5-0.jpg next clues.

this is the French GM trans in your car.
its electronically shifted. if not, its a true Hyrdamatic.

25722445-2f5dzn2kvqcmxgnp5h420nyp-5-3.jpggot those 3 solenoids. is the connector below , connected?

my best advice, get reverse to work first...
that is 100% hydramatic mode. (lever to R , at drivers hand and lever at trans in R detent !!!

I broke the bottom of my bell housing on the transmission to my 1991 isuzu trooper 4x4 2.8L V6 with cruise, can I just replace the housing or do I have to replace the whole transmission?

You should be able to tell if the bellhousing is a seperate part from the housing by looking at the case(look for a "seam"at the bellhousing to the case,if there is a joint,the bellhousing can be replaced my pulling the trans)(you didn't state auto or manual-some auto transmisssions have a seperate bellhouse,every manual trans I've ever seen has a seperate bellhouse)

Were the timing mark are

Timing marks are located between the engine and tranny. There is a small opening, on the front of the tranny, at the bell housing where the timming marks are visible. It might have a rubber plug, in that opening, that pulls out for viewing the marks.

I need to know where the bellhousing is located on a doge caravan 1996

the wording bell housing was first used for vehicles with the standard transmission in the early days
Since the automatic transmission came around the casing is generally one peice so no bell housing is used.
Although what the flywheel attaches to on an automatic trans we stll call it the bell housing
That will mesh with the starter the flywheel that is

I have a 98 Sunfire 2.2 four speed sedan. I am looking at removing my damaged transmission and installing a new transmission. I have been told this is a big job but I can't afford a mechanic to get my car...

It is a big job & you almost certainly need a lift & engine cradle (Brace to hold motor so trans can be removed), Disconnect the battery and after getting cradle on & car up in the air remove both axle's and any cooling lines (auto only) disconnect any electronic's, starter, shift linkage/cables ect.... before you remove any bell housing bolts, first remove the inspection plate at bottom of the bell housing to remove the torque converter bolts. You can use a large screwdriver (I prefer a long handled pry bar) against the fly wheel teeth to turn it for access for each one...same goes for man tran's. Position a trans mission jack under the trans & secure it with a chain to avoid rolling off. apply enough pressure with trans jack to safely remove the tran's mount & all bell housing bolts. Let jack down slightly and wiggle trans back & forth & rearward to break it loose from the dowel pin guides. Keep the converter in the trans or you will have a big mess! Pull it clear & lower the jack. Installation is reverse of removal. Do not reuse the converter as it may contain metal particles from damaged trans. Most used units come with a matched converter, if you put a new one in be sure to grease the seal when installing to avoid a dry seal from ripping out on first start up. (you don't want to have to do this twice for a $12.00 If replacing converter, carefully align with input shaft and give gentle turn while pushing forwards, be sure it turns freely and is flush with the bell housing. Remember to check refill tran's with proper fluid after installation. Hope this helps you. This is not a job for a beginner, & is very difficult to do on jack stands, you may not be able to get the car high enough to get trans from under the car not to mention ther is a crushing hazard if the trans roll on you. Good luck!

Auto trans 4x4

Oh lord, are you in for some work. First of all you will need a transmission jack, a must and a couple of strong guys if you don't have a lift. First things first. Disconnect neg. bat. cable. Raise up on jack stands. Disconnect drive shafts and tape bearings caps on drive shafts. Remove Starter. Disconnect wiring harness plugs from transmission and transfer case. The wiring harness connection on the shift linkage does not remove. There are 2 connectors and are glued at factory. Remove whole shift linkage unit from side of trans. Remove exhaust. Remove dust cover. Mark spot on flywheel and tourque converter, then remove bolts from flywheel. Support trans. with jack. Remove transfer case bolts from trans. Remove mount nuts from transfer case bolts. Remove bell housing bolts from motor to trans. Remove bolts from crossover support for transfer case mount from the main frame. Raise up transmission and remove crossover support. One guy now supports transfer case and other works transfer case loose. The transfer has to be jockeyed around until it drops out. It will not come straight out or down because of the tor. bar support frame. It has to be wiggled out and down. Guy supporting transfer case gets trans fluid bath and this is all muscle work. With transfer case out, put another jack under motor for support or risk breaking motor mounts and other things. Slide transmission back and lower down and its free, It is a very dirty, oily, nasty hard job. I just went through it. I wouldn't do it again. If you can afford it, take it to a pro. Well worth it. Remember once started, your pretty much commited. Reverse the whole thing to install. Good Luck
