Best Answer

It's possible, but it wouldn't hold up very long. a 400 is a high torque but low horsepower motor and most tranny's wont take high torgue levels

A 400 is a high horse and torque motor, I have one in my 250. Yes its possibel, anything is possible if you have the time and money.Truthfully the fuel economy should improve if you use the overdrive. I know my uncle had a truck that was set up for overdrive and he put a 4 speed tranny in and the fue economyl was horrible. Either way let me know how it turns out, i was thinkin wether or not to put a 5 speed in mine.

How do you replace the speed sensor on a 92 Plymouth Voyager?

Depends on what transmission we are talking about... if its the A413 its real simple, the speed sensor is located on the back of the transmission, right about where the passenger side axle goes into the transmission... the sensor is held in with 1 10mm bolt, when removing you will have to wiggle the sensor back and forth because it will be a tight fit because the sensor has an 0 gasket on it.... if its the A604 4speed transmission, then there is 2 speed sensors that are plasic, an input and an output speed sensor, the input is located near the trans dip stick, im not sure where the output is.

Does 2002 automatic Pontiac sunfire have a transmission dipstick?

The 2002 E2.2L engine 4speed auto does not have a transmission dipstick!! To check the fluid level you have to go under the car and unscrew and remove a threaded plug in the transmission pan. The car must be level when you do this. After you remove the plug, check to see if any transmission fluid is dripping from the hole. If there is then you don't need transmission fluid. If it is not dripping fluid you need to add some. You add fluid until it begins dripping from the hole. You then replace the plug. To add fluid you must find and unscrew a threaded cap found by looking under the hood on the driver's side on top of the transmission. Sometimes the cap is red and sometimes it is black. You may find it easier to go to a quick oil change place and get them to check it for you.

How reliable is the Sunfire 4speed auto transmission?

In all the time I've spent here in the Sunfire group, I've never heard anything about that transmission failing. I know that's not much of a recommendation, so take it for what it's worth. My '96 has the 4 speed auto. The car has 204,000 miles on the clock and the transmission has never hiccuped. Check the fluid periodically and don't beat the car up too badly. I would guess that the transmission might be trouble free for a long time.
