asked by on

wanna know if a 1997 gmc jimmy starter will fit into a 1996 gmc jimmy and work
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello there, thank you for asking about your 1996 GMC Jimmy. If the engine is the same size and both vehicles have an automatic transmission then they should be the same. If you see anything looks different when you go to install it, then you should not install it.
