TC Gone, Need a Low Mileage 50-42le Transmission

Post by warmblood58 » Sat Feb 10, 2018 12:51 pm

My TC is toast on my 1995 T-5r . . . . anyone know where to source a low mileage automatic transmission for a 1995 car? Been looking, too many high mileage units, would prefer a unit under 120k if possible. Thanks!

Car-part.com, Erie VoVo, whatever that big dismantler is in Sacramento, there is one in Atlanta (LKQ?) etc.

But these transmissions are, very very hardy, most will go to 300k no problem, so you may not want to get too hung up on mileage. There aren't many out there in the 120k range.
'95 854 T5-R, Motronic 4.4, 185k
'96 855 NA, 145k
'98 S70 NA, 220k (living out west)
'98 V70, T5 tune-injectors-turbo, LPT engine, 285k
'06 S60 R, 165k
'99 Camry V6 :shock: 125k
gone: '96 NA 850 210k, '98 NA V70 182k

I never believe what they tell me about mileage. If they gave the VIN with it, maybe.
'95 855 T-5R M, Panther - 22/28 mpg
'98 S70 GLT, Lil' Red 25/32 mpg

Not sure what happened to the post I did yesterday? vandsautodismantlers near Sacramento is a Volvo/Saab specialist and may have one for you. Another place to try but shipping may be the issue is Chapman Motors Inc. on Vancouver Island on West Coast Canada. They are a Volvo specialist and often have low mileage parts due to being on a large island.

Erik has listed the others Id suggest.

Good Luck!
