Can a vehicle be Automatic and Manual transmission?

Yes and no. Many cars will provide a manumatic type of transmission, in which the driver can designate whether they want to the car to drive fully automatic or in a sportier mode where they have control over gear shifting. The shifting is usually performed on the selector lever or on paddle shifters with no clutch. Even in this mode, the car will up-shift or down-shift for you if possible damage to the engine could occur. More expensive cars sometimes will come with transmissions in which they can choose between an automatic or manual transmission, and then further designate how aggressive they want the shifting to be.

Can a person live without a heart?

No, the heart pumps the oxygen to the brain which allows the brain to function properly. However, the brain can still maintain itself for 2 minutes without flow of oxygen. Anytime after that gives brain damage. [except in the exception that you have larger lungs] The brain doesn't and does control everything, their are two forms of actions your body processes. Automatic and Manual, there is also a semi-automatic that you can control at will. Examples, heart beat is automatic, you can't control it. Moving your finger is manual, you completely control it. Breathing is semi-automatic, you can control it at will but sometimes it's automatic, (when sleeping for instance.)

The transmission computer is only found in automatic cars because it controls that which in a manual car the driver controls, the shifting.
