95 E320 Wagon Auto Trans replacement compatibility
first i off i have searched for days sorry if this has been covered elsewhere.
My 95 E320 wagon Auto trans is finally toast at 230k miles.
for the last year it has slipped in reverse, stacked shifts, and overall had poor shifting so i knew this day was coming
and finally as of 6/18 started it up and no reverse just jerks and barely moves in forward gear(have to floor the throttle)
after removing the pan there was tons of clutch material in the pan. i have serviced the fluid and filter at least 4 times in the last 150k miles of ownership and never had any debris / clutch material before. also after removing the valve body and inspecting it there was tons of built up clutch material and one spot where a hole had actually corroded through the seperator plate.
i would love to do a 5-speed swap but funds and availability are not in my favor at the moment.(i have yet to find donor parts and/or car locally in Oregon)
i have access to a low mileage(110k) used trans out of a 1991 300E at my local auto wreckers and i would like to know if this trans will for sure work in my car and if so is it a simple bolt in affair or will i have to modify things.
my car 95 E320 3.2L with 722.369
donor car 91 300E 3.0L with 722.358
i realize theses trans may have different shift points etc. and i have priced proper rebuilt auto trans and not sure I"m willing to invest that much into the vehicle
My question is will it bolt in and work with out to much extra work.
Thank you in advance
