hey guys, new to the forum and i just got a 95 Impala ss from a friend. well the transmission is acting up as most do. here is the problem. it shifts from 1st to second just fine. then when it is supposed to go to 3rd it acts like it goes into neutral. i belive it is slipping pretty bad. so i have a few options. 1. go to the junk yard and get another for the time being. the good thing is that it is Half price day this weekend at my local junk yard so the transmission would only be $100. or i can rebuild it with a couple buddys that have a little knoledge with transmissions. may take awhile and may work but not sure. this route is $140 for the rebuild. now for the real questions. if i can get it from the junk yard what year and what cars will i find this transmission in that i can do a direct replacment. the easy thing would be to find a 95 impala ss that has a transmission but everyone knows that its not that easy so i need to prepair for the worse. any help would be great.

PS. i was out trying to diognose the transmission and it hit 50mph and the lower ball joint snapped here are a few pics.

"my life SUCKS...... is there any hope for this car"??????

well i have several friends that have done one or 2 transmissions sucessfully. so i think this will be a good idea to do plus from what i understand it is not terrible to do. as you said i am not looking to spend that much money as i am a student and have other thing to pay for rather thatn a $3000 transmission. as for the other options i am still not sure because if i can just get it running i can try and sell it as this thig is nothing but problems..... its just very discourging i am sure you guys know what i mean. its an awesome car but too much work and not alot of spare parts as well as not a huge following where i live.... that i know of. as for the damage there was not much looks like a dent in the finder (could be pounded out) and the ball joint... as well as my new shocks are now scratched. o well thanks for the input if anyone else has any ideas i am open to suggestions. also if anyone is intrested in a 95 impala it is now for sale. best offer!!!

The chevy gods arnt happy with your sreen name so theyve passed the word onto your car that it should find a new owner.....

But seriously if your realy straped for money id go with one from the junk yard, they usualy have a short warranty so if you do decide to go that rout make sure do install right away and get it runnimg so if it doesnt work you can take it back.

i got mine from a junkyard 2 years ago and still going strong
Well it is good to hear that you guys understand a budget.... most other forums that i go on always say to spend spend spend. sometimes i dont think people know what budget means.

on another thought .... does anyone have the old sticky for the T56 conversion?

thanks for the advise..... one last question, what cars can i get the exact transmission out of and is there any markings that i should be looking for?
