A manual transmission, yes.

Automatics are a whole different animal. There are hundreds of little parts inside of an automatic, and put one thing in wrong and it may not work at all. Find a transmission shop that's certified to rebuild it and put a warranty on it. There's one in my area that is certified by all 3 of the big 3, and if he rebuilds a tranny from one of them the respective auto company puts a 5 yr-100k mile warranty on the rebuilt tranny.
