You are wanting to put an 98 engine in a 92 car, it can be done but expect sensors and wireing connectors to be different, exhaust, intake, fuel rail, may need to be swapped from one to the (OBD1, OBD2)other but the transmissions have to stay in the original car, they are different, good luck and have fun.

If each car has an identical 8th digit in VIN, then the motors are exactly the same.

The best thing to do is have a local transmission repair shop run some basic tests. This can be any number of things. Has the fluid and filter ever been replaced? If not do that first.
