Question about 1997 Saturn SL
If you have the same year that is only part of the swapping process. You need to have the same transmission. The SL1 use the MP6, which is a economy ratio'd transmission. The SL2's use the MP7 which is a performance ratio'd transmission.
You need to have the correct year range and correct model level. So if you have an SL1 then you need a 1993-1997 MP6 (out of another SL1). If you have an SL2 then you need a 1992-1997 MP7 (out of another SL2).
Your computer has no idea how to shift the current transmission and hence why it won't shift out of any gear.
In order to identify transmissions, look on the bell housing where it meets the engine. Clean it off really well because there is a dot matrix stamping on it with a serial number. 3 of the characters in that serial number is MP6 or MP7.
