asked by on

The tranny in my my car (LHD) got damage it was replace with a tranny from a rhd car but when im driving the car pulls back just before it changes gear

My car has 59000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. If your transmission has a floor mounted shifter then there would be no change at all. If the transmission in your vehicle has a column shifter the the linkage would be different. Otherwise, the transmission are the same inside and built the same. If you need further assistance with determining the difference between a LHD and a RHD transmission, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
