car fail emission

My transmission went out and I bought a used transmission and they do not match 100%. The front axle doesnt look the same on the new one. The old one front axle part is smaller than the new transmission. What years will fit the 2003 Santa fe? Or does it have to be from another 03 santa fe to fit right? Do I have to change out any parts? etc. HELP

I've been offered a high milage (224000mi)Santa Fe for near nothing ($500.00) It's been well taken care of and feels good, looks good and all seems to work well. Rebuilt transmission at about 150000 and new brakes at about 165000.
I expect that the engine will wear out soon so I'm curious as to the cost.
Thanks

I can't find any information in the owner's manual

i bought the car used with 172k seems the car has a few issues:

1) the car seems to stall or trys to stall when in drive so i have to place it in neutral to prevent that from happening then in drive when pulling off.

2) it seems to idle high like if the car shuts off on me and i try to crank it back up i have to keep giving it gas as it's trying to turn over or fire up. once it does start up my rpm is in the 3000 like as if my foot is on the gas to rev up the engine.

3) if i'm out all day driving or at a stand still my temp gauge is going up like near or a cpl times in the red but as soon as i start driving w/o stopping it will come back down to 1/2 mark.

lastly i've noticed when my foot is on the brakes in drive the car will all of a sudden jurk fwd an times my foot can be off the gas pedal and the car will drive fwd on it's own.

thanks for all help in answering my questions to anyone
