    Hi all: 98 Honda Accord v6, trashed engine. Tranny works OK but found mega metal shavings on Tranny Plug when ATF fluid changed.

    I thought since changing engine, might as well get out from under the Tranny since it's questionable.

    Is it possible to downgrade to a four cylinder and switch over to a standard tranny??

    Hate to give up power, but I don't want to mess with this tranny down the road....

    Thanks,

    Supergeeky

    Anything is possible.... but its not going to bolt in. it will be a full-on custom deal.

    lol no sense throwing away a car.

    Just get a magnetic drain plug for the tranny and drive it till it blows up.

    And then, never buy another v6 automatic from honda again... those tranny's are garbage.

    NEVER swap a smaller motor into a v6 chasis. You will have to welled up custom mounts. I say sell the auto for 100 dolla and do a motor and tranny swap. you can choose from a j32 j35 j36 and the hardest j37. the j32 is the best deal really. Interested ask me how.
