Interchangeable transmissions

Asked by Aug 29, 2017 at 07:49 PM about the 1999 GMC Sierra 1500 SL 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1999 GMC Sierra 1500 Z71 4×4 extra cab.
My good friend has a 1986 Chevy Caprice 4 door.
Both vehicles have the Chevy 305 5.3L V8 engine
in them. We are trying to find out if the
transmission from my  truck will work in his car?

Nope, two totally different operating systems, the caprice is old GM OBD 1 and the truck is GM OBD 2. The two are not compatible.
