4x4 5 speed. What other transmission will fit?

swaps are the most complex topic on cars, near infinite possibles.
my guess is OE fit. (stock for stock)
all transmission match engine power rating
and some have same box but run special clutch (bigger)

you never said what engine, so cant really answer... right.
after all the bell housing flange shapes dictate fit. there.
and what clutch works there....
1996 had what.
Gen 2 troopers had. 5 engines.

3.2 L 6VD1 SOHC V6
3.2 L 6VD1 DOHC V6
3.5 L 6VE1 DOHC V6
3.0 L 4JX1 TD I4
3.1 L 4JG2 TD I4

my wild guess 2, is he 6vx1 something,.
the V6 engine.
id say all v6 transmission fit, off hand.
is this the v6 turbo engine option?

to get a more prefect answer, try the only people that do that

the hollander data base. (wreckers all use this (savvy ones)

i think the stock trans is, MSG-5F (up to 1995 and 2.6L max)
so get one of those an be sure it fits your transfer case?
fits all trooper ,amigo and rodeos/

or read real forums asking this question?

best yet, see all those transmission m/t here

so is a MUA-5C box starting in 1996
this fits the bigger V6, (unstated by you)

Honda pass port, same engine, same box.?

the newer trans has and electric shifted 4wd section.

so if not hollanders DB
try google , if MUA-5C
see that results, if you do that , all cars it fits may show up there for free
best is to first learn whats there.
and post.

Does the transmission have to come out with the engine on a 2001 dodge caravan2001 caravan engine

no it does not, but it is a tight job and fit to pull the motor without dropping the assembly engine/trans out the bottom.

05 Land Rover Freelander Engine replacement---Flywheel bolt holes will not line up and I can't find why. Engine is correct

The fly wheel bolts will not line up unless you turn the flywheel one hole at a time The arrangement is so that the balance of the flywheel in relation to the crank shaft is maintained . So offer up the flywheel and see how many holes line up . turn it one hole at a time and more holes will line up . Keep going until all the bolts screw in finger tight . If you have a tight one then move the flywheel again as all the bolts have to fit finger tight and not need force to turn

2002 honda civic over heats in traffic....i replaced radiator thermostat

ensure that your thermostat is facing in the proper direction. Since you've lost alot of coolant during the thermostat replacement, you are probably low on coolant. If you filled it up then you probably have air in the system. To get rid of the air in your system, remove the radiator cap, find a funnel that has a tight fit on the radiator where the cap was, add coolant ( if it is snugged it wont fall over or leak) as if you are trying to overfill it. fill it up to the point where the coolant is pooling in the funnel. then let the engine run and keep an eye on the coolant making sure it does not go dry. when the cooling fan cycles twice it should be good to go. if you cant find a funnel that will fit snuggly, just keep filling up the radiator with the engine running until the fan cycles twice.

My 1997 jeep grand cherokee dies. it will start right back up but i cant figure out what it is. its not an oil pressure thing an over heating thing or a charge thing . i cant figure it out. i suspect its a...

The age of your vehicle also guarantee's a vacuum leak. It may sound silly but the truth is rubber grommets, and hose's shrink and dry out over time and the harsh environment under the hood makes it worse. Check all vacuum lines and fittings attached to the intake manifold, valve covers (pcv valve), and be sure to check for a vacuum fitting on top of the intake just behind the throttle body. Does it fit tight in the hole? You can seal loose fittings with a high-temp RTV (Red) silicone sealant/adhesive. Several small leaks add up and your engine, heat/AC, and transmission will be all to glad to tell you about it.

Could also be fuel related i.e. filter and/or weak/bad pump.

I have a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, 5.2 liter engine. There is transmission fluid leaking out from around the radiator. Were are the transmission lines leading to and from the radiator located?

Check both connections to make sure they are tight. Look carefully to see if fluid is coming from the fitting or where the nipple comes out of the radiator...If leaking there it usually can be fixed by any decent radiator shop.

96 Chezy Blazer Manual Transmission Removal

Did you remove the transmission lines too? did you remove the linkage from the gear selector to the transmission? And last. Did you remove the plate near the bell housing? If you remove that plate you'll see the flywheel teeth that the starter engages to to spin the engine over.. And you'll see bolts holding the torque converter to the flywheel. You need to remove one bolt.... Turn the engine over by hand at the crankshaft with a ratchet until the next bolt is in a position to remove. Remove it and continue till all the bolts are off.... Then try to remove the transmission... You absolutely have to unbolt the torque converter or it won't pull out. The space to get those bolts out will be fairly tight.. A ratchet wrench would be the fastest. A regular ratchet might fit.. But if it doesn't a box end wrench will work.
