Default Transmission compatibility question

PLEASE help a newbie:

I need help with an urgent issue. My father in law lost the tranny on his 03 (2.4 non-turbo). The shop wants $3250 for a rebuild because they've "searched the entire area and can't find one with less than 150k miles on it)

My question is this: what other model year's transmissions are FULLY compatable?

-I found one resource that says 2000-current (on here)
-One says ?-06 before canbus implementation. (on here)
-one salvage yard says 01-03 another not even 02 and 03 are compatable

Can someone please set me straight with an educated answer? I will be forever grateful. If you think you know please respond. Enough I thinks usually mean a right answer

Default Re: Transmission compatibility question

Transmissions are rebuildable, and the components usually aren't too expensive.


Check Factory Parts Manuals for each year, they are downloadable in the link in my signature
(the link just goes to documents section on this site). You can plug each part number into online Chysler (aka 'mopar' ) parts departments and see what Chrysler supersedes them into.

Check Auto Parts Market
it's the definitive for used parts, and you can drill around and figure which transmissions they are including as acceptable fitments

Go to and look at rebuild kits, solenoid packs, reman trans (if they sell them) and torque converters- There's massive amount of fitment data if you click on their part numbers might have numbers on the transmissions.
