You may want to check the performance aftermarket like Jegs.com or Summitracing.com to see if someone makes a manual valve body for your trans. If you just want more solid shifts I suggest a shift improver kit, that way you retain automatic shifting and it's easier on the drivetrain.

Nope, only a 5 speed Autostick automatic transmission.

You have to shift gears in all of them, so you'd call them "manual," but in 1969 you could get an "autostick" transmission that had an automatic clutch connected to a manual transmission.

The "automatic gearbox" Volkswagen used to put in Beetles is an "autostick" transmission. It has a three-speed manual transmission connected to a vacuum-operated clutch and a torque converter. There's no clutch pedal but you still have to shift it.

You could. You need the usual 4-speed-automatic-Transmission, the Autostickshifter AND the Autostick-Cluster. Without that cluster it wonยดt work (at least on a NGC - >2003). Were to get that things ? Good question - these parts are absolutely rare. Look at germany or UK for them. Also see 2gn.org for more details :-)

Note: There was no full automatic for the Ghia, but they did have an Autostick which is kind of a hybrid. You basically left the shifter in the first position for city and the second position for highway, and there was also a seldom-used "low" for very steep hills or trailer towing starts. It had an automatic clutch which operated by itself the moment you placed your hand on the lever (no clutch pedal!), and a torque converter so you could stop with the car in gear. Pretty trick engineering for the day, but it's hard to find a mechanic who understands them nowadays. For conversion you will ned the autostick transmission, torque converter, control solenoid, autostick pedal cluster, vaccum port on the carb, fluid tank, and the special autostick-only oil pump which is a dual pump for engine oil and transmission fluid. You should be able to purchase all the parts from someone who has converted from AS to manual, which is a more common conversion. To find a doner vehicle would be best, like from a auto wrecking yard. This would give you everything you would need to swap over. If you have to pay someone to do this job it would be in your best interest to sell your vehicle then purchase another that was automatic from the factory.

Autostick is a feature which allows the driver to shift gears on the fly much as in a manual (stickshift) car only with no clutch. The gears are changed simply by tapping or nudging the drive selection "stick" up or down.

To change an automatic galant to a 5-speed, you need a Computer for the Manual transmission of that year, and an engine.

1967 was the first year for the AutoStick. Really a manual transmission with an electrically operated clutch, it also had a torque convertor so it could stopped in gear. Works great when everything is in tip top shape, VW stopped using it in 1976.

You can change a manual transmission to an automatic. It can cost upwards of 3,000 dollars to do this for a Volkswagen Polo.

There are some automatic gear buttons. You can change them by pushing or pulling the handle of the gear forward or backward next to the correct button.

You should change your automatic transmission fluid in Toyota gearbox at least after every 30,000 miles.

None of the factory 944 turbos came with an automatic.

User Avatar

No the gear's are not automatic , It's manual meaning the rider has to constantly change the gear's himself .

Engines with automatic chokes also usually have an automatic throttle which is supposed to run the engine at the best speed. Changing the choke would probably also require coming up with some way to change the throttle.

There is no automatic way to change tires besides taking it to a service center. There are tools that can make it easier and faster, but no automatic way. You can get a vehicle lift and power sockets to make it faster, but it is still manual.

Most were and some aren't. Answer #2: In the older classic Beetles most of them were manual transmissions, they also had something called an autostick transmission. You used a clutch to take off but then only had to press a button on the shifter when switching gears instead of pressing in the clutch pedal. The new Beetles can be bought with either automatic or stick shift transmissions, I'm sure the automatic outsells the stick.
