You probably have gotten the correct transmission.  I'm going to assume you have a 1999 Galant.  The 1999 Galant was the only transmission they used it our cars with an external filter, from 2000-2003 there is no filter (or it is internal).  I also believe the dipstick is changed too as far as location. 

Hope this helps.

good info keith. jonathan, first things first, does the bellhousing look as if it can accept the waterneck after being bolted to the motor? what i mean by this is on the v6 driven transmissions there is a section on the top of the bellhousing that sinks down as if it would be going under something once bolted to the motor. now if that part of the bellhousing isnt present, take it back now. but if it does, lets continue. as keith said with the external filters, dimensionally it needs to be the same as well. please make certain this didnt come from a diamante or a likely but unlikely sister chassis car (yards tend to get it wrong when it comes to interchangeable parts between manufacturers). thirdly, we look forward to getting the pics as that would help massively.

you're fine, that looks like what you need for sure. that circular piece by the dip stick is that what you were referring to as an external filter? that is just the casting. nothing goes there.

Some 2000's did come with the external filter, mine did and was a 2000.

J miller you will be fine with that trans. There is no differnce between them save the filter

Looks like the correct transmission to me.  On the V6's the starter location is at 4:00 instead of 2:00 when facing the open part of the bell housing.

I know a 99 transmission would put an 01+ in limp mode due to the ECU, but the other way around u should be fine

but thats definitely a i4 transmission
