Re: auto box issue
I have an applicator chart that says 1992-1996 Diamante only had 3.0 ltr engine available,and the chart also says that the 3.5ltr was only available from 1997-2004.So either my chart is wrong,or you have a LATE 1996 that is actually a 1997.Either way,my chart says the 3.0 ltr engines used an F4A33-1 auto trans and the 3.5ltr's used an F4A51 trans.You ust recheck your vehicle to verify all the specifications.I would rebuild the trans that's in there,but i am a transmission rebuilder.Getting a used trans is kind of iffy,as you may be getting junk or a high mileage trans.As far as interchange,contacting a junkyard is the best way to go as they have interchange manuals.I would try and stay with the same year model and same vehicle.My chart says that the F4A51 also came in 96-05 Eclipse's...will it work in your Diamante?I don't know.I do know that an 05 trans won't work in your 96 model. Best way to go is rebuild your trans,or get one from a remanufacturer like Jasper Engines and Transmissions.

check the clutch cable as it may be broken. What you have is the clutch not disengaging when you put your foot on the pedal and this indicates a slipped cable adjustment or a broken cable . If hydraulic then the system is full of air and needs bleeding or the slave cylinder and master cylinder need replacing.
Hi, if you have a manual gearbox then the problem could be any of the following: 1. gearbox oil could be low causing the gears to bite to hard. 2. clutch could be low and need replacing. 3. gearbox or engine mounts could be worn causing the engine or box to **** when put under pressure. 4. ball joints could need replacing such as bottom ball joint and anti roll bar bushes.
you can check the oil by finding the oil level bolt on gearbox remove bolt and if oil comes out its ok if not it needs topping up.
you can check engine/gearbox mounts by getting a good hold of the top of engine and give it a hard pull and push their should be only slight play any more and some mounts may be worn.
ball joints you can check by jacking the van off the floor then use pry bar to put bushes under pressure and check for play, their should be only slight play any more and the bush will need replacing.
Now if you have auto box then the chances are the fluid is bad and needs replacing or worse case it could be that the torque converter is on its way out.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
Hi, if the gearbox is a manual shift then the chances are that the clutch has gone or even the thrust bearing operating the clutch could have collapsed causing the problem your having.
If your gear box is an auto box then this would more than certanly mean that the gear box needs replacing as they are to expensive to repair your cheapest option would be to exchange yours for a reconditioned box.
Let me know what type of box you have then i can assist you further as it could be that the master or slave cylinder has gone on the clutch pedal if your gear box is manual type so let me know then i can assist you further ok
Hi it sounds like the problem is with the clutch unless you vehicle is auto if its auto box then the chances are this needs replacing if you have manual gearbox then i would get the clutch replaced or looked at. If the clutch is ok then it could be that the gear selector inside the gearbox is worn and needs replacing if this is the case then it would be cheaper to get a reconditioned gearbox as repairing it would cost about the same as a recon. If you need further assistance then let me know ok
hi there, needs to be the same number. computers need to match. tourque converters are different from 2.0/2.2 to the 2.5 engines. also shift points are different between models so needs to talk to the dash perfectly. hope this helps.
