I have a 2002 Pontiac Bonneville 3.8 LIV6.. Will a 3800 pontiac motor work for me?? Does it need to be same year as my car??

The motor will fit physically . The Best question is will the computer / PCM recognize and plug in to all connection points . This is why same year is important . Verify at a Auto Parts counter that 3800 series is in same time eg ; 1999 - 2003 all engine parts are same . This will tell you engine swap / versus computer will be OK. If you have PCM from 3800 motor then install it too . pcm talking to pcm is very important ..good luck .

Where is trans module on a 2006 b m w 325 i?

trans, brain, the TCM?
on most cars newer that about 1997
the TCM was moved and integrated into the PCM.
infact PCM means exactly that.

They did that to save $ and was possible due to much faster
processors that year in cars. big time savings.
there are exceptions by year, but your car is modern.

why no log in to and see for self.

Pcm replacement

The PCM must match for your year and model. Ebay probably has the correct part or use a local wrecking/used parts yard.

Car blew PCM fuse and would not run, replaced the PCM with a rebuilt pre-programmed unit. Now the car starts but runs very rough and smells very rich and has no power

did you use your old prom chip? when you changed it out/ if not then it wont run right not all pcm's/ecms use the same prom chips per year model
