Default Crank use

True 99 up cranks will fit all blocks, are heavier, idle better etc... If you use a 99 up crank in a 98 or older block you MUST also swap over the oil baffle. If you simply reuse the one in that block it will knock horribly against it from the larger weight throws.

I found out the hard way.

Thumbs up Swap guide update?

Hi everyone,
I was wondering if anyone was going to continue to update this guide?

Default 1999 Saturn SL2

I have a 1999 Saturn SL2 1.9 DOHC (I think its DOHC anyway, I'll have to double check, it may be SOHC... ) anyway. The poor car has 235,000 miles on its transmission. Its an automatic and I need a new one as this one is failing. She has started to slip, slam, and hang the gears. I found a transmission for a 2000 model that only has 88,000 miles on it and I wanted to know what years/models are compatible with mine. I would hate to spend the money and it not work. Also, what else would be needed to swap the transmissions? (the engine has about half the mileage as it was replaced before.)

Default Transmission swap

Here's what you should know,
SL2's are always (from the factory) DOHC, SL & SL1 are typically SOHC.
The SL2 came with a better performing shift (lower mpg) transmission.
That said, the SL1 trans would give better MPG but different shifting points.
From what I've been told (another Saturn tech who made this swap) this will work without swapping the ECM, but not very well the other way around unless the ECM is swapped too.
According to the Chilton's/Haynes manuals, the automatic trans capacities (fluid) increased in 98' from 3.5 quarts to 4.2 (service, not dry). While the block in mid-99' changed to improve structural durability, the mounting/bolt pattern did not change. Your trans-swap 99' to 2000 will work, even if the 2000 is an SL1.

Please start another thread so we can better understand what you are doing.
Also stop by the New Member forum and introduce yourself, and your car to the group.

Thanks,
Management
