I have a 91 CRX DX and need a new automatic tranny for it. I know you all think I should change to a manual but I live in a massively hilly city with lots of traffic and it's my daily driver so I don't really want to. So can I use any D Series auto tranny in my CRX? What if it is a hydraulic, is that hard to make work? Any of the auto Transmissions particularily good? Thanks fellas.

auto

any '90-'91 auto trans will work, but i'd look for one out of an ex, unsure if it would have any diff gearing. i put a jdm D15B auto in my '91 4dr, if you go that route you have to use the supplied torque converter as its slightly diff.

Thanks bro, I'll look into that.

finding an automatic tranny out of a crx is pretty hard to do...they were mostly stick and back then an automatic tranny was real expensive

I thought that pretty much any D series auto tranny would work, like out of a 88-91 civic or even the 92-95 civics?

the '92-'95 should bolt up, but not sure if wiring is the same or if it will work with your ecu. any '88-'91 auto will bolt right up except for possibly the wagon, which was all-wheel drive and had a drive shaft to the rear transfer case.
the reason i used the D15b was that the d15b is rated at 130hp where as the D16A6(si/ex) is rated at 108hp so it might be slightly stronger.

Very helpful thanks. I do actually know that if you use a 92-95 you need the 92-95 torque converter as well because the are a bit different but it all does bolt right in.

the 88-91 will in fact bolt up but if you get a 88-89 you will need new axles. the spline count is different

Okay I got my car back from Moss Alley today and she is running great, total cost $800.

I picked up an L4 automatic tranny with 114K miles on it for $100.

Moss Alley replaced the old one with the tranny I bought, replaced my front motor mount, ATF fluid, all the seals etc, and readjusted my throttle cable total $700.

All in all I think it went as well as it could.
