Hi Roger, to change the manual gearbox to an automatic one would be extreemly difficult, you would need a complete donor vehicle including the EGS control unit and the complete wiring harness and very deep pockets with unlimited funds. It would be more cost effective to buy an automatic vehicle. hope this helps. regards mark.

How to you change/check oil in the gearbox & is there a diagram showing the location of the gearbox?


at this point I would suggest that he takes it to an accredited service shop or a shop that has experience with the make of vehicle
if it is a front wheel drive vehicle then the gear box is on the end of the motor (LHS) and is driven by a chain from the bell housing back down and into the gear box
You forgot to say if manual or auto but with all the information that you have supplied , A workshop manual would be a good starting point if your dad wants to tinker with the vehicle

How can I fix a Nissan liberty automatic not changing gears when it gets hot


Hi sad to say this gearbox requires valve body repairs ,replacement of dextron 3 ATF fluid and filter.clutches and friction plates should be checked replaced if worn.Torque converter should be checked out.If gearbox has electronic functions a diagnostic report should be done before stripping.A conventional auto gearbox pre 2000 model could be fitted with a external modulator switch causing present fault ,over powering the above mentioned faults.

When changing from auto to stick shift, don't forget to install a pilot bushing into the rear of the crankshaft. It's a real bummer when you do everything else right and forget this small part...ask me how I know!

I change my transmission in 1997 honda civic freio I change the cvt to a manual transmission andengine check light stay on what could cause that to happen


Check engine lights report faults in engine AND gear box(auto). If you have changed from an auto to manual gear box then the sensor system for the gearbox is recording a massive fault with the gearbox that you have to check out. Talk wit an accredited auto electrician as to how to neutralise the system so that the light only checks out the engine.

LEGACY 2.5 AUTO GEARBOX REPLACEMENT


hi there, needs to be the same number. computers need to match. tourque converters are different from 2.0/2.2 to the 2.5 engines. also shift points are different between models so needs to talk to the dash perfectly. hope this helps.
