Will 04 Xterra transmission plug in and work in 01. Thanks in afvance
I have done this in the past, but I put the smaller torque converter into the supercharged transmission. There are two basic variations I’ve seen of the 4 speed. The higher horsepower variation(3.5 pathfinder and S/C VG) have the larger torque converter as well as the turbine rev sensor. You can leave the sensor unplugged if not needed but can’t work the other way without a TCM. When locating a TCM you need to verify that the truck was equipped how you want it. VDC and non VDC computers communicate differentlyYes it will. If it was from a supercharged you will need the flexplate (flywheel) as the torque converter bolt pattern is different.
Shane12970I just did this repair myself, and I ended up putting a 2001 Frontier transmission into my '02 Xterra. On part interchange search from Nissan parts the 2000-2002 Xterra and 1999-2002 Frontier come up as matches. Many other vehicles use the same transmission (Jatco RE4R01A), but with different TCUs. Pathfinder transmissions are not the same Nissan part number, but someone with more experience than me could tell you if it will work or if you'll end up with a check engine light. If you go with a 2003 or 2004 Xterra transmission you'll need a matching TCU, since the TCU was updated in 2003. I have a spare if you need it.
