A4ld help

I've got a 1992 coupe with an A4ld.

My transmission went bad so I got another used one, it didn't last long so I got another used one but it seems to be from an earlier car.
Either the car or the transmission is a 3 wire and the other is a 2 wire can't remember which is which , sorry, the car is not close to me.

We've got 1st and 2nd but no 3rd or OD.

We've been trying to got this car driving for longer that I care to think about.

I think he spliced a 2 wire plug to the 3 wire harness but I wouldn't swear to it, I was doing something else and I'm the flunky.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks, ivel

how are people supposed to help with such an unsure synopsis of the situation at hand...

how can someone help you with something when your not even sure of what that something is?

Oh I don't know maybe by asking a question or two, to help a fellow out.

It's a 3 wire car and I've bought, unknowingly, a 2 wire transmission.

I'd like to know if I can swap a 3 wire valve body into this transmission.

I hope the next time you join a forum to try to learn some information about something that you're not familiar with, that you're greeted with such hospitality.

Thanks, 38

I have repaired more than a few AL4D transmissions. There are some common problems with them, but there are easy upgrades and solutions for them too. Servos, EPC solenoids and low pressure, have been the culprits for most. Band adjustment can be done easily and in some cases, may buy the owner some time. Most of these things are not that hard to fix, but parts can run a bit of money :mad: and by the time you replace a half dozen parts in the AL4D, you're into it for $3-400.00, which is why most people, spend that money on a pedal assy and T-5 trans, which when you think about it, is probably what most of us want in the first place.

Unfortunately the AOD will not bolt into our cars, if you can find the bell housing, a C-4 from a Pinto will.
