When replacing the transmission, it’s actually the easiest and best option to replace with the exact same transmission. Just make sure to get a high quality new or rebuilt unit, or if you insist on a used transmission, get one with a warranty. The transmission should be replaced by a qualified professional, such as one from YourMechanic.
