unfortunately that didn't give me a list of everything I need and what I need to do is later to come depending on if I can pay for the manual swap, in which manuals seem to be WAY more abundant than autos and then have it installed with all parts.If you search the forum, you'll find a number of threads on this. Here's one:
I mean the links help FOR the swap but don't tell me a LIST of all the parts as to not screw it up.Probably your cheapest option will be to do a straight swap with another 3 speed auto tranny - from either a Tracker or Sidekick - that you can pick up within your price range from a junkyard.
Sorry that you didn't find the links provided definitive enough. Search the forum for additional links!!
Edit: Here, this is the best I can do for you - a search of every thread on the forum that deals with your issue:
Have you tried changing the fluid and filter? You might be surprised.it's on it's last legs.
Slipping and hard shifts.
The problem is that the list has lots of bits and pieces and could to be "made to work" with different parts than stock. These different parts might be better/cheaper or just easier to find. What can be done, with what parts, depends very much on the situation behind the swap, (who/where/why.) For example: If you have the equipment (grinders/welders and the like) it might be easier to modify a "old" part rather than replace it. But without the equipment you'll NEED that "new" part. Also some people can "make due" with less than complete swap (who needs a clutch safety switch anyway!) and might not consider all the parts as 'needed."I mean the links help FOR the swap but don't tell me a LIST of all the parts as to not screw it up.
Ever thought about first changing the vacuum modulator on your existing tranny (other than checking/replacing fluid/filter). In your 3 speed tranny, the modulator deals with shifting - easily replaceable, as it is outside the tranny, and is a common area to check when you have shifting problems.it's on it's last legs.

vacuum modulator? I ain't got no marvin the martian on my car lolEver thought about first changing the vacuum modulator on your existing tranny (other than checking/replacing fluid/filter).

I said it's slipping and hard shifts, not dying at stop lights or anything else.I think that you need to list all the things that you feel are wrong with your car, as well as how it runs, warms up, idles, bogs, etc. Dying at a stop light may have nothing to do with a transmission. Speedometer cable being jumpy is something that's somewhat important - the computer uses the speedo cable rotation to the vehicle speed sensor, in order to know how fast you are going - if this is off, jumping, etc., it could affect the ECU signal. Thus far, you haven't described anything in particular that is wrong with the tranny - dying at stoplights is normally not an auto tranny issue. And describe what 'tuning as best I can' actually means???
Have you checked the fluid level? By "the book" method? (Read the owner's manual: Warm, running, idling in park... on level ground.)... it's the transmission so far because well it shifts hard and slips in and out of gear
