I am looking at a '89 Porsche 944 automatic. The guy is selling because the auto trans is not a happy camper. I've heard ( he says) a Vanagon auto trans will fit..is that reliable information?

Thanks.

Used 944 complete are a dime a dozen in US. I'd think a Vanogan would be reverse geared?

I agree, auto transmissions for 944 are a dime a dozen ,we. must have over ten of them here.

However, maybe it is not the transmission but rather the vibration dampener (rubber flywheel) that broke. They are not available used and new ones are 1600 dollars, and labor intensive to replace. We have two 944 automatics on our lot right now that both need them, and the cars are not worth enough to justify the expense, even though they are nice cars!!!

Thanks for the replies kids. I certainly have some more food for thought. $1600 for a harmonic balancer! Tha's a little rude!
