Q: Will a 2010 camaro transmission fit in a1999 chevy van 1500

Will a transmission from a 2010 chevy camaro fit in a 1999 chevy van 1500 express?

Hi there. There is an old saying in mechanics - "with fabrication, everything is possible". However, compatibility with modern technology is an entirely different subject. The transmission from a 2010 Camaro has multiple sensors and electrical solenoids that would most likely not be compatible with a 99 vehicle of any sort. So, if you’re asking if it would fit - the answer is yes; with some fabrication and modification. However, it’s just not a practical application.

What others are asking

About a month ago, check engine light came on. Had it read: P2423 Code. My bro in law asked if I had put in different gasoline than what I regularly use and I had. He suggested I let it go to empty and put in premium of the gas that I regularly use and see if the light turns off. After 2 hours on the premium gas, it turned off and hasn't turned back on (2 weeks now). Do you think I have anything to be concerned about? Should I have it rescanned to see if the code comes back up?
