The best place to call for that sort of thing is a full service salvage yard. They will already have an assemby out of the car and ready to go. A self service salvage yard, which is cheaper, will have you pull the parts you need.
That is true, unless it is a car we are working on.
Unless we are parting out a car or have extra parts.

I don't know if its compatible with the la sabres engine but being the same make and model they should be compaitible shouldn't they?. Heres their options:
Both transmissions should be a 4T60E (which is an electronic version of a 440T4). You could swap them out, but then you will have to pay labor to remove two transmissions. If you buy a used or remanufactured tranny you will be only paying to R&R one.

then chances are it is an expensive repair as you would have to take it off the engine to basically do anything
You can take the trans out without removing the engine.
|Quoting ScrubbsYWG (Reply 1):|
OR maybe you could find out what is wrong with it first and see how much it would cost to fix it
Good advice. Not every transmission problem requires a rebuild or replacement.
|Quoting MCOflyer (Reply 4):|
Could someone whos a mechanic tell me how much they would get for both the car and engine/tranny combo if they were to sell it for parts.
Not much. Around here (Detroit) you could get that for around $500. A 3.8 V-6 and a 4T60E is a very common powertrain. The car is virtually worthless without the engine. Unless it is in very clean condition. Average cars from the 90s with no engine and trans are worth their weight in scrap.
