Yes, under certain circumstances, and you need to know what you are doing. What I mean is, if you are going from a M/T to an A/T, you may need to remove the pilot bearing from the crankshaft. If you are going into a M/T, you may have to install a pilot bearing. Is this the same size engine, just a different transmission? Or are we also changing engine sizes, or year models? If so, we might have a conflict in wiring or engine controls, so there may be more questions to consider than just the issue of a different transmission.

Will a motor from a 1994 Honda accord stick shift fit into a 1991 Honda civic automatic?

The short answer is "Yes". However, the swap in question is not an easy one for many backyard mechanics. In order to make the swap happen you will need aftermarket motor mounts, modified axles, a modified wiring harness, a pedal swap, a new center console (to make the shifter look right,) and an upgrade from OBD0 to OBD1.Depending on the trim level of your 1991 Civic, you can swap motors from the same generation Civic (1988-1991) for not only a power increase, but a cheaper and easier swap. So if you have an LX, you could source a D16A6 engine from a Civic SI for a considerable power improvement, and all you will need is the motor and preferably the Engine Control Unit (ECU).The automatic-to-manual swap will require a set of pedals from a 1988-1991 Civic, a manual transmission for the motor you have or want to use with shift linkage, all clutch components with lines and cylinder(s), and an ECU designed for both your motor and transmission.

Does anyone know how to take a transmission out of a 1999 Ford Taurus?

I have heard that one can loosen the motor and transmission and hold the motor up with a hoist and lower the carriage instead of pulling out the whole motor in order to take out the transmission. This will allow one to keep all the odds and ends still affixed to the motor above while one replaced/fixed the transmission. I know that I pulled out the power steering unit this way without having to pull the motor. My ex-wife got her transmission fixed in a Taurus this way.

Can you swap a '97 Prelude H22a with a '93 Prelude H22a?

Provided the '97 Prelude is a base model, then yes it is possible to swap in an H22a variant. The Prelude Type SH motor is different as the ATTS unit is connected to the motor. So, the only compatible H22a motors would be one from another Type SH, or the JDM Honda Prelude Type S motor.

There are a few different motors that can swap in with some mods and wiring. you already have the ka24de in it.

1990 Jeep Wrangler with a 2.5 four cyl and want tho switch a 4.0 Jeep Cherokee 6-cylinder into it How do you do It?

To do this swap you will need to swap out the engine, transmission and transfer case as a unit. And there is a host of other things to change including the motor mounts, wiring, etc. This is not an easy swap by any means. You would be wise to sell the 2.5 Wrangler and get one with a 4.0.

Can a motor from a sl Saturn replace a motor from a sc model?

First you need to know if they are both the same, they made a single over head cam and also made a duel over head cam motor! What ever you are putting must match the one coming out, unless you swap the head. Now if you are working on a automatic and the car you are taking the motor out of is a 5sp. you will need to swap computers too. Other than that, yes they will swap.

Can a 5.9 liter engine from one 2000 Dodge Dakota be put into another 2000 Dakota in place of a 4.7 liter engine?

Not without a lot of work. You will need to replace the motor mounts, ECU and transmission. Far from a direct swap.

You got a 93 eagle talon dual over cam non turbo and you want to swap the motor from your 1990 eagle talon tsi turbo what all do you have to swap other than the motor?

well you really don't have to swap for the tsi motor. you can get all the turbo parts(turbo, manifold, piping, intercooler, ect.) and they will work with the NA motor but you will need the turbo injectors and fuel pump and some sort of air/fuel management. the APexi AFC is a good one and you can get one off of eBay for around $100.
