First thing to try is to drain and change transmission fluid if that does not stop it the gearbox will need to be stripped down or replaced depending on cost

Auto transmission to manual transmission

WHile anything is possible, it's not practical. In general, you'll find many of the mounting locations are different for the transmission and AWD case, the computer tune is different, and most importantly, setting up the linkage will be prohibitively expensive.
IF you're thinking of this because you really like the control of a manual, you're better off just finding a manual version of the car.
If you're thinking of this because the automatic transmission is dead and you have access to a free manual, it'll still be cheaper to pay the $3500 or so to have the current automatic repaired or replaced with another.

Can i change my manual transmission for my 1995 ford aspire to automatic transmission?

Possible, but will cost far in excess of the value of the car, before and after. You have a 500 dollar car and you are going to spend thousands. Why don't you just buy a 99 Ford with a manual for about a thousand dollars.

Change of Manual transmission to Automatic transmission

This would be a major engineering job, it would be time consuming and very costly if new original parts were to be used and i suspect it would invalidate your warranty.

Would it not be better to trade in your car for an automatic version?

Change automatic transmission fluid and filter first, sometimes can solve this problem.

or chage c-90 oil for your gear box and at the same time, change the clutch plate.
