Hi everyone, I have a 2006 Saturn VUE with a 3.5 Honda motor and a MDRA transmission that quit moving. Can I put a MDRA from a 2004 in or does it have to be the 2006 year model like the salvage yards want me to do? I have read about upgrades of shafts but what is confusing me is when looking at rebuild kits they list the 04 with the 06. The oil was very dirty when dumped so I believe the clutches are bad and it likely plugged the valve body up. Trying to figure out what to do here and there seems to be very little information for me to search.
