The conversion should be pretty simple if you are mechanically minded(even a little knowledge will do).Find a wrecker or look for an 86 that is being dismantled privately, take a camera and photograph such things as pedal positioning/mounting etc. Location of gearbox and mountings etc. Buy these parts and use your pics as reference or better yet go to Toyota and buy an ae86 repair and service manual.This reference will give you an even better understanding of how to fit thew parts for this application. Check out online auctions like EBAY for parts if you cant find what you are after.The best way to do anything is to do it yourself.If you can remove the parts yourself you'll have a better understanding of how to install them into your own car.Off the top of my head you will need:

  1. T50 gearbox and bellhousing
  2. Driveshaft from a manual version
  3. Clutch kit and flywheel
  4. Scatterplate
  5. Slave cylinder and possibly the speedo cable
  6. Clutch pedal
  7. Gearbox mounts. All these parts will bolt straight on.

Has this put you off, if not .

which trans automatic or stick 4x4 or 2 wd ?

YES. It surely is NOT chemical but a physical change.If you think of the stick in terms of it is a solid, then you will understand that the broken parts have not changed their physical state, only their appearance.So its physical stateis not changed, but its (mechanical, or outer properties) form is changed by force.

The Chevy Cavalier vehicle can be either an automatic or a stick shift. You can switch an automatic over to a stick shift by switching out the transmission.Ê

Semi-Automatic. The gears are changed by machine, but the driver can decide what gear the car should be in.

User Avatar

If it has a stick shift and clutch, it is standard. If no clutch and stick shift, it is an automatic.

stick shift or automatic

User Avatar

It depends on the vehicle. If the car was offered with a manual transmission or there are other cars with the same engine that have a manual transmission, then yes you can have stick shift installed.

User Avatar

Yes, glue sticks changed a few times.

User Avatar

The bell housing is not the same on the two but if you are doing a change over from a automatic to a stick and have the trans and bell housing the will will fit where a automatic came out.

When you pull the dip stick out to check the transmission fluid, If you can't see through the fluid on the stick then change it. If it smells burnt change it. If it is clear and pretty red then it is okay.

a transmission fluid and filter change should make a big difference. make sure not to be down shifting witht he stick if its an automatic. if that's the case you should have bought a stick in the first place. if the change doesnt work you may want to think about a rebuild kit. a transmission fluid and filter change should make a big difference. make sure not to be down shifting witht he stick if its an automatic. if that's the case you should have bought a stick in the first place. if the change doesnt work you may want to think about a rebuild kit.

An automatic gear would stick in 1st if there is an obstruction. Gears can sometimes break off and cause motion to stop entirely.

i dont have a price but i can say it is far too exspensive to do. there is a long list of things that need to be changed including your instrument cluster. in the end, it would be a lot easier to keep/ learn to drive the stick. imo.

User Avatar

It would be labor intensive and you will need a Donner vehicle for all the parts involved.

You would need to swap the auto transmission to a stickshift transmission of the same type of vehicle. eg. take the ae 86 corrola and its auto, and swap for the ae 86 manual (stick)

MAKE A QUICK PIONT TO YOU! I HAVE FOUND OUT THAT ONE THAT OWNS A MX6 DOSN'T CHANGE TO A AUTO TRANNY. MOST, AND I STRESS MOST MX6-ER'S GO THE OTHER WAY. I'M ONE. THE MX6 IS KNOWN FOR IT'S AUTO TRANNY PROBLEMS. MY MX6 WAS A AUTO, THE AUTO TRANNY WAS REBUILT TWICE, AND REPLACED ONCE. SO NEEDLESS TO SAY WE CHANGED IT TO A MANUAL! I THINK ALL OF THE PPL AT MX6.COM FOR THE HELP. IF I WERE YOU I WOULD JUST STICK WITH THE " STICK ". Are you High? Automatics Suck. Sell the car and buy a different car if you want an automatic

the way to change th pitch of a harmonica is to stick it up your but and sing mery had a little lamb and then take it out and hopefully the pitch would have changed

It means that you do not have stick shift in your car, your car shifts gears for you, you don't have to do it, so basically if you don't have a stick shift car you have an automatic transmission car.

User Avatar

Depends on what transmission you are attempting to swap. Automatic for automatic, manual for manual or auto to manual. Also depends if you are swapping a 3-speed and 4-speed transaxles. Short answer is yes, they will physically fit. More complicated answer is fitment is Ok, operation may not work. The parts are very similar from generation to generation - but here you have a 6th generation Corolla swapped into a 7th generation. You could potentially have issues with the clutch operation, axles could be different, some cases ECM is completely different Best to stick with the same generation of parts, if possible, stick with the same model year and equipment - to insure a trouble-free, nearly drop in swap.

A fully automatic car doesn't need any action at all to change gear, a semi automatic car can have no clutch pedal, just a gear stick which you pull backwards to gear up or pedals behind the steering wheel.

Some are stick shift (newer ones are 6-speed) some are automatic.
