This doesn't sound like a Performance issue or idea.

I'll move this to General Chat for you.

expect to pay $400-700 for a used tranny or $1400-$1700 for a rebuilt

look on your spare tire cover to get your RPO codes.. either list them all here, take a picture, or check to see yourself

yeah, check your codes, and if you want something quality and have the money, go for a remanufactured unit with a GOOD warranty, not just some 30 day thing.

I recommend Jasper, expect to pay around $2500 after all is said and done.

The vin you listed shows your car as an SE not SLE.

Tony, 1993-1999 SLEs are a special package on the SE trim. vin codes don't show it. H4U RPO and badges sometimes. Until 2000, when SLE became a trim and replaced SSE

I have a 96 SSE (4T60E) and went the cheap route (junkyard trans). $900 installed. Lasted 22 days, replaced under warranty with another one. That one didn't make it to the end of the test drive. Third one is now being replaced after 4 months. I went with the reman this time for no other reason that it has a 2yr/24k warranty and since I don't know how to works on trannys, I am not taking the risk a FOURTH time. My opinion (emphasis on opinion) is that I would never again put a junkyard trans in any car I expect to keep, such as my 96 SSE. But that is just my OPINION after this bad experience.
