1983 Mustang C-4 transmission

I have a 1983 Mustang with a V6 and a C-4 trans. The trans is junk. I am being offered a trans from a '93 Mustang with a 2,3L I-4. Will this trans bolt up to my engine? My car is carburated, and pre-computer, is this an issue? Finally is this an AOD? Thank you!

How do i take transmission out of a 93 honda accord lx 2.2

1. I'm not certain that you should: I had a transmission linkage problem, and I took my '93 Accord to a transmission place (Cottman's). In the end, those skilled pros really couldn't do anything--they directed me to a Honda dealer, instead! (I was very puzzled!: They couldn't even get to first base.)

2. You see, virtually everything concerning Honda automatic transmissions is proprietary--down to the fluid! You wish to put a junkyard trans in your ancient Honda?: Good luck! It may prove an uphill battle--very difficult.

3. So, you have a clever jack which lifts small transmissions?: You need help--someone who works/worked for Honda, or knows Hondas very well. Info online proves scarce:

4. You may obtain a relevant Honda repair manual from a Honda dealer--you should start with that--given that you're still brave enough for DIY...Hayne's and Chilton's offer no help--it's way beyond their scope....

5. It may be the linkage--not the trans--hope it's the linkage!

.6. Sorry!

How can I tell which v6 is in my 1983 ford ranger

As far as I know there was only one V6 engine offered on that vehicle in 1983 and that was a 2.8 liter V6. (There were a range of 4 cyl engines offered though).

A decode of the VIN on the vehicle should tell you which engine was fitted in the vehicle when new. (In a vehicle that old the original engine could have been replaced with something different).

1996 mustang v6 3.8 reverse works fine, but no forward gears. had to add 3 quarts trans fluid. don't see any leaks.

its impossible to lose that much fluid with out a leak. the was so low that it has burned your clutches out. would have to rebuild or replace entire transmission

Chevy S-10 upgrade

You need a donor vehicle, or a good junk yard. You will need an engine from a 95 up V6. You will need the complete engine, wiring harness, ECU, and harness. You will need the radiator and motor mounts, You should go ahead with the transmission swap also, being the 4 cyl.trans will be a bit weak for the v6. Look for the 3.4 v6 if you can find one. This swap from a Camaro is a good choice. The engines from the a Comaro are a bit beefier. What ever car you get your engine from, be sure to get as much wiring and all electronics as you can. Now if you do not have any Emissions problems where you live you will not need the ECU's or the wiring to go with them. You can run a carb engine and the swap will be a lot easier. You can get a manifold from Summit and a carb. and have plenty of power then. Good swapping.

I have a 1998 4 litre v6 that i want to put in a 1995 3.8 litre v6 mustang, will the transmission bolt pattern line up?

No, the transmission will not bolt up. Also the engine will sit too far forward because the holes are different in the k-member.

I have a 93 Chevy Suburban 1500 and the Transmission won't shift into any gear. I have an 1983 Chevy Suburban Transmission that is still good. Can I use the 83 Transmission in my 93 Suburban?

Not without a little adapting. The 1993 has a 4l60e which is electronically controlled and has shift solenoids. If the 83 is an overdrive it is a 700r4 which is the same trans but not electronic. If you put it in the speedo wont work and you will need to install a T.V. cable so the transmission will shift. The 93 won't go forward or backwards?

83 mustang gt

In a 83 MUSTANG GT the correct answer is BOTH. As a 5.0L and a TURBO CHARGED 4 cyinder were offered.

1983 Mustang GT
  • Engine:
    • 5.0L horsepower increased to 175 HP when 4V carb replaced 2V carb from 1982 (Holley 4180C series).
    • Exhaust system was revised (less restrictive).
    • 4-speed SROD was only transmission available until early December 1982. In December, new 5-speed T5 became standard GT transmission (4-speed remained on option list).
    • Block and crank were revised to accomodate a 1-piece rear main seal in December 1982.
    • The new "Turbo GT" with a turbo charged 4 cylinder engine was available beginning late in the model year - 145 HP and featured the same suspension and other features of the V8 Mustang GT.

1983 v6 is no fun

give me a welder and a set of gas bottles and i will fit anything into whatever you like.but to be honest i do think your biggest problem will be the wiring.want to really hot it up put a jag engine in.but its most likely worth more in its original condition.high compression engine and not subject to having to fit a cat.but you could still fit the manual gearbox though.OK for when your europeon cousins visit as most of us lot in europe especially spain and italy wouldnt know how to drive an auto,they are only for old and disabled they cost a lot of money extra to have when you buy a vehicle and thats only if you can get it in an auto,very few manufacturers build europeon cars in autos
