Hello, I own a 1990 Toyota Camry 3SFE with a A140L transmission. It has 82,957 miles on it, but the transmission is grinding and is going to die very soon. I would like to explore replacing it with a re-built or a used transmission. I remember reading on this forum that certain model years can exchange transmissions (ex: a 1993 trans put in a 1990.) Does anyone know which model years I can choose from when searching for a transmission? I remember reading about it on this forum before, but can no longer find the thread. Also, does anyone have any information on the cost of a rebuilt A140L transmission?

Thanks for your time

Nicholas

Hi: A tranny from 87-91 should fit your car. I don't think Toyota made any big changes to the tranny during this model run of the Camry. The 92 and later are different. I don't know the cost of a rebuilt one. Maybe you can try calling around and see if you can get an estimate.

Cool, so any transmission will work up to 2000. Could you explain what you mean by "it must be replaced as assembly" ? I was going to replace the entire transmission with a used/rebuilt model and junk the current one.

Thanks!

The front pumps are the same from 83 to 2000, however it must be replaced as assembly

So... I understand that "L" and "E" are different in some aspects, but bo the A140L and A140E share some of the same parts. Are the gear ratios the same, major internal parts the same? My research has led me to conclude that I may not find a working/used A140L, however there are all kinds of working/used A140E's out there. Say I tear my A140L down and find the problem in a major part, like planetary gears or something in the transaxel... Could I use planetary gears or the transaxel components from a A140E to fix my A140L? Was thinking about going this route to fix this Celica, if I can?

Cross reference part numbers on www.toyodiy.com (make an account to see pictures, etc.) between an A140L and A140E transmission from the same model/same year. Likely much of the main components are the same, but it highly depends on what is broken in your current trans.
