okay well i posted a earlier post about how my trans was messing up and what not but it finally took a shit on me last night coming home from work.. but my question/s are

which might sound dumb but i want to double check, Are all 86-89 automatic trannys the same for our cars, like can i just plug and play an 89 auto tranny on my 86 carbed engine, or does it have to be closer to the year or from another carbed engine. with no problems etc..??
please help me out with much as you can like i said its urgent and i need to fix it be this up coming weekened bc im starting my second job and i need a car for the drive.. so yeah thanks guys

I know all 5 speed are interchangeable but I don't know if the carb and FI auto is the same.

They have different gear ratios, but otherwise it is a bolt-on exercise.
