Engine/Transmission Change


New Member
I have a 1999, TL, Auto Tran. with a shifting problem into 2nd gear. My questions are:
1. Can the 2000 TL eng. and/or tran. be directly exchanged with the 1999?
2. Is the tran. removable w/out pulling engine also?
3. How can I tell if the engine is an OBD2b (which I am told are directly exchangeable)?

Pretty sure 1999 was OBD2a and 2000+ is OBD2b.

Other than that, I don't know. Good luck!
