The problem of my cars its, the transmission automatic no work nothing so I need to choose by another transmission. my question is, I can to put a one trasmition manual the same caracters the diferents...


so long as the transmission is the correct size and shape it should work. Changing an automatic transmission to a manual transmission is more difficult ... but it Does work (as long as they match the car). I would not recommend trying to make the swap yourself unless you have all the tools and space you would need ... and a bunch of experience in swapping transmissions, since you will have to change a lot.
Changing from an automatic to a manual transmission will require the mechanic to install a clutch pedal in your car, which sometimes takes a lot of work. In addition to that, they will have to swap out the transmission itself (which take a lot of work, too), and they will have to swap out other parts like the computer, transmission fluid control systems, and possibly much more. If you really love your VUE it could be worth the effort ... but it will be an expensive job, and probably take a significant amount of time to complete. If your issue is the transmission that is in the car already, you might save money and time just swapping it out with another automatic transmission ... but if you have the time, the money, and the desire to give your car a manual transmission, then it is up to you. Either way, have fun!

Can I install a 4 speed automatic transmission in my 1991 chevy cavalier to get better fuel economy?


I assume your car has a standard shift right now. Automatic transmissions **** up more gas than a stick shift, so I would advise you to keep yor standard stick shift. Just don't go around burning tires and try to keep your motor RPM's as low as possible.

E46 330i SMG 2002, i need to convert it to a manual what needs to to changed?


The car. buy one with a manual transmission. It will be easier. But if you must: rebuild the interior so you can add a clutch, modify the electrical system and change the ECM computer to switch it to manual, remove motor, install a different bell housing to the motor, then the manual transmission. Cut a hole where it might shift. Rewire the main engine and wire harness to adapt to a manual transmission, and finally driveshaft replacement, because a manual transmission isn't the same length as an automatic.

So, you've rebuilt the entire car for twice as much as it would cost to buy a stick shift. And then take it to the dealer to find out why it throws error codes and the check engine light is constantly on.

My 1991 Honda Accord does not want to shift out of Park.. when i got in to start it.. it smelled like something was getting hot... then it just would not shift....


I hate to give bad news to such nice people but the low down is you may have already done to much damage.
Lets see if you have any fluid in your transmission.
There is a dip stick located under the hood and on the motor. Like an oil dip stick only this one goes into a long tube. It can be located on the right or left side of the motor.
The next thing you need to do it start the engine. You should put it into neutral but if it will not come out of park then park will have to do. Place the emergency brake on as well. With the car running go pull out the dip stick. To make sure you are pulling the transmission stick out, the fluid will be a redish brown color on the end of the stick. It may be darker if you got it that hot. The car Oil should be nearly clear to black depending on when you last changed the oil, but no redish color and You do Not want this dip stick. Find the other long tubed one.
If the stick shows no fluid on it then we may have found why it got hot.
The next thing you will want to do is add just enough fluid to see it on the stick. The reason why is because you probably burnt up the fluid in it and you are going to need to change all the fluid and replace the filter.
No since in waisting more then you have to.
You will need the long tube type transmission fluid funnel. Walmart would be cheapest butif you don't shop there then any auto parts store will have them.
Ihave used a rolled up piece of note book paper in a pinch but this can get messy.

Automatic transmissions go by pints on the dip stick though the fluid comes in quarts. Unlike the oil which the dip stick goes by quarts and comes in quarts. If the fluid is Not showing on the stick... Turn the motor off and add a Full Quart the first time because when it is that low you are safe to do so.

If there is fluid showing now then see if it will shift out of park and into a gear. (The motor must be running.) If it does shift then you need to shut down the vehicle and go to the next step otherwise>> you will be waisting money on fluid you will be disposing of later.

If it still does not show any fluid then look under the vehicle to see if there is any leaks going onto the ground. If you do not see any leaks then go ahead and add another quart. Stop the engine to add it and restart it motor to check it.
Once there is fluid showing try shifting it again.
If it does have fluid showing on the stick now and it does not shift then you may have burnt up the transmission and a rebuid is in order or a new replacement put in. A 1991 would Not be cost efficent to do this unless you bought a wrecking yard tranny and replaced it yourself.

Ok if it does shift and moves back and forth then we need to go to the next step.
Draining the old fluid and changing the filter.
This will require some ramps to raise the vehicle off the ground if you want to takle this your self. If the car moves now then you may want to put a little more fluid in it and take it to a gas station that does mechanical work or lube place and have them do it. Buy the fluid and filter for your model first. All those mechanics charge extra if they buy the parts.
I hope this helps, The Raz

How Do I Use Shiftronic


It is still just an ordinary automatic transmission the difference is there is a slot at the bottom of the the shifter gate that allows you to push the shift knob from side to side.
So basically when you put the shifter in that posistion its in "D" (Drive) just like any other automatic but while its in that slot pushing it to the "+" side or the "-" side of the slot will change gears up or down accordingly.
The only reason for this set up is to give people who cant drive a stick shift, or dont want to drive a stick shift the ability to feel like they are driving a stick.
It really offers no real benefit to performance.

Can I put a manual transmission in an SXT Magnum?


This type of question always comes down to what is practical vs. what is possible. Typically, the way to install a manual transmission into a car with an automatic is to find the same model of car that came from the factory with the manual transmission and then swap over every relevant part. This approach is always fraught with complications. For example, the engine wiring harness, computer, motor mounts, pedal assembly, steering column, and even steering rack may all need to be changed (not to mention the axles, exhaust manifolds, starter, etc.). From what I can tell, the SXT was never offered with a manual transmission, which means that instead of finding parts from another car that already has a manual transmission, you will have to fabricate or adapt everything yourself.

If you are an excellent machinist/metal fabricator and have a lot of spare time and money, then you probably can swap a manual transmission into your car. Even at that, you would probably end up with a car that was never "quite right" in the way it drove after making the swap.

For what it's worth, if you asked a professional mechanic to do the job, he would probably either ask for a blank check or bid the job for 2-5 times what he thought it would actually cost just to discourage you from doing it.

Transmission Removal & Installation 1997 ES300



Well if you took 11 or 12 hours to swap out a transmission you would not be a mechanic for long, I used to get them out in about an hour to hour and a half, depending on how hungry I was. You will have to take the lower tie ball joint loose on the side the transmission comes out with drop the tie rod end remove the brakes on that side swing the a frame out and pull the axle half shaft out on the same side disconnect the shifting mechanism unhook the wire harness unbolt the cooling lines to the radiator remove bolts from transmission for tork converter remove bolts from bell housing (Assuming it's automatic) and disconnect the motor mount and transmission mount and spend some money here to get one of us to help you threw the process as your going to need a lot of information, since you have a computer you can go to http://www.alldatadiy.com and buy the .subscrption, see it took me longer to type this than to have done the job myself, I'm a slow typer.
