The '94 will not interchange with the '97. You have to find a '96 and up basiclly.

you cant say that specifically/for sure based solely on the year


92 to 94 were changeover years to VSS and such

really should compare the trannies physically to be 100% certain regarding interchangeability

i see no reason why a 94 one would not work in a 97 unless the wiring was different physically between them

in which would be visually obvious

but a 94 one could very well be early style wiring still

some yes and other no

I can for sure tell you that based on year it will not fit/interchange. The '94 had different electronics/setup, also the '97 has physically a different transmission case. The '96 and up were two piece cases, with the bellhousing one piece, and the transmission being the second piece.

Just for the record, the '95's were different, and pretty much unique to that year, as the operation(PWM function etc) were pretty much used in that year only. The mid '92 to '94 4L60E were all the same, pretty much.

Is correct.
They are all together different.
Check the salvage yard interchange or look in the parts books.
