Hey guys do you know if a 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt 5 speed manual F23 M86 transmission would fit my 2004 Chevrolet Caviler? I am having a hard time finding one for my car. I have no 3 or 4 gears.
No it will not.
You can use a getrag from a 2000-2005 cavalier 5 speed. If it is from a LD9 (2.4), or a LN2(2200) you can swap the bellhousing from your current tranny to the new tranny.
