    1996 town car transmission

    You can check with a salvage yard. Their computers generally will tell which parts will fit which cars. The 1996 model will of course fit. If you try other model years you will have to consider sensors, actuators, linkages etc compatibility.

How easy is it to use a 2005 v6 3.8 in a 1997 rs camaro

Well to start with, the last year for the gen 4 Camaro was 2002. So what is the 2005 engine supposed to fit ? It would have to be for a rear wheel drive car, and even then I doubt it would bolt up to a mid 1990s chassis and transmission. Especially the electronics and exhaust.
A salvage yard would have the interchange books to tell you how many years would fit your model.

I own a 1998 4x4 dodge ram 1500. The transmission burned up earlier this year. I bought what I thought was a tranny from the same year and model truck, but come to find out, it came ouf of a 1999 dodge ram...

First find out if the transmissions are interchangeable. Check with the dealership or a salvage yard could check through their interchange data base.

My95 saturn wont move how do i remove my tranny and will a tranny from a 2000 fit

the first thing you need to do is figure out what engine you have. there are only two saturn engine blocks 91-99. one is a DOHC for you a SW2 and the other a SOHC for you a SW1. The transmissions for the two engines are different, common mistake you should not make, different final gear ratios. When you find that out call a junkyard and they have interchange numbers to tell you which year saturn transmissions will fit, probably a 95-98 will go in.

Will a 2001 4.3 fit a 95 4.3 I have a 2001 Rolled s10 blazer w a 4.3 and an automatic trans will this fit and work in a 1995 s10 blazer that had a 4.3 and an automatic transmission

Yes it will but your going to have to also transplant the ECM. The change off years to the Blazers are 1992 to 1995 and interchangeable, 1995 being the odd ball year for the 4.3, and in 1996 to 2002 are all drive-train interchangeable. Good luck and keep me posted if you have any more questions.

I have a 1996 ford explorer 4 door 4 wheel drive with automoatic trans...what years will interchange mechanically with mine

1996 & up are OBD2, I suggest if you are going to try to play with Transmissions , you find a good 4WD aftermarket Shop & a 4WD Forum for you Exploder. The physical fit of the Transmission may not mean it will work properly.

Unfortunate all that is available for transmissions for the 1995 and 1996 aurora are the 1995 and 1996 year! The transmissions fron any other year are not compatible or interchangable on the 95-96 years!
