4T65E transmission swap

Will any 4T65E transmission work in a 2001 Buick Century?

I believe the mounts may be different, also the axles are larger, really don't need that in that car.

Re: 4T65E transmission swap

Is there a year range that they are the same? I have seen a couple 2002 transmissions for sale. I also considered buying a rebuild kit and new solenoids and having a shop rebuild it. I would rebuild it, but don't have a place to do it or all the tools I might need. One place quoted me $350 for labor to take out and put another in, I am thinking rebuild labor could go a lot higher.

The Century was never built with a 65 series trans. A salvage yard would have the info as to what year units will fit your car.

By 65 series do you mean the 65 in 4T65E? The Century did use that trans from 2000 on.

I'm thinking of buying a Cenrtury, I came to this forum to find out about them. Just because they have the 4T65E in them, no way I'll get one.

Thanks for the warning,

Chris.
