Default How can I tell what transmission I have?

Can I tell via the vin number? I lost overdrive and I need to replace it. Does anyone know where I can purchase one at a reasonable price? I am not looking for a performance transmission.

Thanks

Being that you have the SSEi you have the 4T65-E with a 2.93 gear ratio

So it would not be 4T65E-HD?

Knock knock, Don, are you there?

Yes it is a 4t65e-HD, ALL SSEi'* are HD

There is a tag on the back of tha transmission that says what code it is. there are 3
ident FCB
ident FHB
ident CHB

if you are looking for a used transmission, this code needs to match.

I tried looking for this code where exactly do I find it. Do I need to jack the car up to find it?
Thanks for all your help.

Yes you need to jack it up.

Hopefully these three pics will give you an idea where to look for it.

I found the tag it has the same numbers and letters as the picture.

I am confused because the dealers is telling me it is the 4T65E not the 4T65E-HD. I told them that I though it was suppose to be the heavy duty model. They said it was but the part number is 4T65E.

You are both right. It'* the HD however they will probably always refer to it as the 4T65E and then use the tag letters to get the HD part.

Where are you located?
