5.2 and 5.9 aren't compatible. Especially with the year difference. Even if you have the transmission for the 5.9, the ECM won't run the engine or transmission. Then you also have to rewire the truck..Plugs don't match..

    All the elec tronics from the 318 and intake will enter change to the 360 the problem I am having is the balance issue. The 318 is internally balanced and the 360 is external

  • Randy Ohler Nov 30, 2014

    Then it won't work. The balance issue is both external. One is at the crankshaft front/ harmonic balancer. The other is balanced on the torque converter..Only 4 cylinders are balanced on the inside of the engine. Dodges, got to love them. innovative they are. just sucks, because they change up things so much.

SOURCE: what engine will swap with 93 b2200 5-speed, not

Your best bet would be to go to an auto dismantler. They have an interchange book that will tell you what engine may be interchangable with yours. There is also a company that sells used engine longblocks from Japan that are low miles that let you pur parts on it and go. Unfortunately I can't remember their name or if they are even in business still. They are usually around 35 to 40 thousand mile motors because Japan requires vehicles to meet certain standards or the engine gets replaced. As an example in my 78 Honda Civic 3 door the 1200cc 4sp assembly was replaced with a 82 Honda Accord 1800cc 5sp assembly and it putts right down the road with better than 40+mpg on the open road. The auto wrecker can tell you what will be able to fit or not and for what years. Some of them will say engines will not fit because the smog is different, buy it also. Complete engine assemblies work the best, smog and all, you just need the correct engine mount placement and trans mount bolt pattern to be the same, the rest is just routing the plumbing and electrical. Good luck, RAC

SOURCE: want to do a 5 speed trans swap That's a great forum to start looking at. Honestly, a lot of people will tell you it's not worth the money, but everyone is entitled to their own opinions. It's ultimately up to you, after you've done the necessary research, to decide if it's worth it. Good Luck either way.

Old geo will work with overdrive trans

"will I be", no one can speak for your skills, time or cash, why ask that.
ask how, how much, or how long.(so will answer that)
the prizm has , Toyota engine.
lets answer easY way;
1: you can in fact put any engine and any trans in to any car.
any true pro, can do that. it's not magic. (plasma cutter and all)
and a lot of hard work.
i many cases, in usa it's illegal ,but we skip that.

you did not state the exact transmission, you wanted.
out of what car, or what year.
ever price them $$$ ?
they run more that the whole car , like $1000?
and finding a uses good 5sp,. that be hard, after 18 years.

here are the parts (wiki paste) see toy engine?
Body style 4-door sedan
5-door hatchback Engine 1.6 L 4A-FE I4
1.6 L 4A-GE I4, 105 hp (78 kW)
1.6 L 4A-GE I4, 130 hp (97 kW) Transmission 5-speed manual
3-speed automatic
4-speed automatic
Ok, ill not post the 20 things that need to be changed
what I will do is teach you to fish,
I present the FSM. (better is a GEO parts list used)
the answer is here.
(tranny, tranny TCM brain, harnesses, mounts.
you can see in the FSM.

if you have never done , tranny swaps cars?,
why do that? you have a month of free time?
why not sell this old car, and get one with the 5sp.
be cheaper, faster and will save vast effort and time.
$1000 to $1500 for old and get the 5sp car for same.
KBB prices.

1997 silverado installed used trans n speed senser plug is diferent and now it wont down shift

If you have adifferent plug for the speed sensor then you probaly have the wrong year model transmission.Even though 93 through 97 look similar they do not interchange.Your speed sensor should be on the passenger side of tail housing,That is the 1995 up design.If you have a trans with the speed sensor on the drivers side of tail housing then you have a 93 to 94 design.93 and 94 were non-pwm units with 5 solenoids.95 was a pwm unit with 6 solenoids with low impediance pwm solenoid.96 and up are pwm units with 6 solenoids and high impediance pwm solenoid.Swapping these units can blow computers.It is probaly stuck in third gear because the fuse is blown or because of open vss circuit.You will not be able to make this transmission work.

Installing an automatic transmission into a front wheel drive

Put it on a lift,support the engine from up top or under it, if you don't plan on using the lift for another job. Pull the axles. Then drop one side of the engine/suspension cradle,then the trans.

Would i be able toi swap my 93 4L60E for a manual transmission?

Yes it is possible to swap the auto trans to a manual trans but it will be a big job.
You will need the manual trans and shifter, flywheel, clutch and pressure plate, manual trans ECM and possibly wiring loom, pedal assembly, clutch master & slave cylinder and a whole lot more little bits.
The best way to do it would be to have a complete manual trans vehicle there to strip all the needed parts out of.
