No one any web can answer that. (GOD like , huh?)
but the car , IIRC has a TCM operated transmission
why not get the TCM scan codes.
the FSM tells you how to do that.
is the transmission ground strap missing or gone or bad?
if yes, the TCM is now useless. fix the ground first
or add one.
the correct question is answered in the FSM.
A./T are complex and only using the FSM will you get correct answers

1997 can be a transistion year.
IN USA< why not state country, so we can stop the wrong answsers.....
the 1997 car many have the TCM integrated into the PCM
in fact the word PCM means just that.
and any USA scan tool on your USA car willl scan
and you will see things like P07xx , tranny codes
if the TCM is seperate (too lazy now to look at alldata.com)
the Old TCM on all cars (most) you place jumper wire and the silly thing blinks out DTC 2 digit fail codes.

once this far and no errors.
the FSM says.
do the stall test. yours fails. 100% (and my ground check)
then you do the pump pressure tests..
also some TCM you can put the TCM in to manual mode.
and shift car by hand, at the shifter.
that too is in the FSM. for most cars.
lots of on car tests.

SOURCE: 91 Toyota Previa AWD - Swap original engine for Previa Supercharged engine

I do a lot of work on Toyota Previa before; including rebuilt engine, swapping engine and transmission and lot of things in between, but never swap a normal aspirated engine to a supercharged engine or diesel. Since i have some experience in Previa, I would like to share my opinion with you regarding your plan to swapping the normal aspirated Previa engine to a Supercharged engine. When you do a swapp like that, you will not only be dealing with just swapping engine, but some wiring, computer, throttle body, air cleaner assembly, extra frame and pulley on the accessory items, transmission as well as a right rear end to get the correct gear ratio to accomodate the new engine and transmission. I can go on even more, but let me tell you this, beside less headache, it would definitely cheaper if you were to find a Supercharged Previa and fix it up. However, if you are totally motivated to do this project, keep in mind, this engine swap will be a long term and time consuming project.l I wish you best of luck and have fun!

Starting in about the mid 1980's automatic transmissions changed from fluid shifting to electronic shifting. In other words, your shift is by an electronic solenoid controlled by the computer. There is no Shift cable gong to the transmission. Just wires. You need to look for a loose or dirty electronic connection to the transmission.

I have a 97 avenger 2.5 that idles good but if you hit the gas it trys to stall but if you slowly give it gas without a load on it the rpm's will max out around 4800


The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems.

Sounds like your transmission has come to the end of its life. You can try getting the transmission flushed , and an additive I.E. No Slip added. That might cure some of the problems but obviously if its slipping the clutchs inside are worn out and transmission needs an overhaul.

We repair our Toyota Lucida automatic transmission because in runs on reverse only. Our problem now is that it will start to move forward only, once the engine RPM was between 1800 to 2000. Another thing,...


The problem concerning low gear locked up sounds like a bad primary shift solenoid (located on the valve body internally) the other issue with the forward gear only engaging with the rpm up to 1800 could be inadequate hydraulic pressure (a transmission front pump issue), most likely there is no problem with the pump if when shifting the selector lever into reverse it engages quickly and normally. This may be a transmission computer issue and I would recommend having the dealership do a diagnostic check on the transmission to eliminate the computer as a culprit. transmission problems are very difficult to figure out and before spending a lot of money get the electrical diagnostic done first.

Need to replace motor and transmission in a 97 Pontiac Grand AM G


Changing from a 1992 to a 1997 < WILL NOT Be EASY , As you must HAVE the ENTIRE ENGINE WIRING HARNESS , And ALSO the ECM for the older Set up. In the "5" YEARS there Were MANY CHANGES to the ENGINE Components= SENSORS and ACTUATERS .
its just a BETTER IDEA to Stay Whitin a year or 2 when Swaping ENGINES. SIZE OF SENSORS ETC. MAKES IT DIFICULT

There will be a dipstick at the back of the motor, should be on the left side near the brake system. The car should be warm and placed in drive with e brake engaged. Pull dipstick out and look for the warm mark. The fluid should be at that level.
