Transmission

Print

The transmission code is located on the identification nameplate. There are many different transmissions options: be sure to identify the one with which your vehicle is equipped when ordering replacement parts.

The manual transmissions use a tag, nameplate, or barcode located on the driver's side, or near the gearshift lever housing, depending on model. The automatic transmissions have a three-part code, or two bar code tags, depending on model, stamped on the left side of the case just above the oil pan gasket surface.
