Vehicles with similar engine and transmission assemblies often share parts, but you must purchase parts in reference to the vehicle they are being placed on in order to ensure the proper part is ordered and installed.

Try hiring an experienced technician to diagnose the shifting concern in person in order to get this properly repaired.
