YES, a lot easier than auto to manual.

changing the transmission is the easiest part then you have do all the laying in the floor board under the dash to get rid of the clutch pedal and that's not easy for a big guy in a little car, if your big take out the drivers side seat it's alot easier to manuver. Then change the linkage and shifter and maybe the ratio on the speedometer cable gear.oh ya you cross member may need a little adjustment

And don't forget to get a radiator with transmission cooling line connections.

The conversion is much more complex. 1:) the cross membre will not work from a manual. You will need one from an automatic because of its geometrical slope, You have to change the flywheel, add the torque converter and pretty much the backing plates as well as other hardware from "doner"

I just did the conversion, Toook the auto from my 1991, and put it in my 89

I am assuming that this is the question, how do I convert a manual 540 to automatic? The answer is easy as I want to convert my automatic 540 to manual so we swap parts. philip@linkecu.com

Converting a manual transmission to automatic transmission is not possible but you can replace a manual transmission to an automativ transmission . That is also an expensive deal.

User Avatar

You sell the automatic and by one with a manual transmission. It's too expensive and too time consuming to swap them.

User Avatar

You must be kidding!!! Sell this car and buy an automatic.

Going from a manual to an automatic is not that hard but going from automatic to manual is a not easy. This will be a very expensive conversion unless you buy a donor car to get parts from. From my experience I suggest if you want a Saturn with a manual transmission then sell the one you have and go buy one with a manual. You will be money ahead.

Sure! But it would probably be cheaper to buy another car.

You could, but it would be easier and cheaper to buy a manual truck.

Do I have to change any of the electrical such as ecu ect

GO OUT AND BUY A 95 2.0 MANUAL JETTA. GOING FROM MANUAL TO AUTO IS CHEAP...GOING FROM AUTO TO MANUAL IS EXPENSIVE$$$$$$

User Avatar

Yes you can, but generally the differences between manual and automatic transmissions go far deeper than just the transmissions to the point where it would be more cost effective to simply sell your current car and buy a manual one.

User Avatar

Yes, with much difficulty and a donor car with all the parts necessary. Sell this car and buy a manual.

User Avatar

you can get it with manual or automatic.

User Avatar

Yes, by removing the manual transmission and installing an automatic. Unless you have a donor car this would be extremely expensive. My advice is that if you want an A/T sell the car you have and then buy one with an automatic.

Manual. They never used to have automatic.

User Avatar

It could have either the automatic or manual transmissions

User Avatar

Manual, yes. Automatic, no.Manual, yes. Automatic, no.

You cannot convert an automatic transmission to a manual one, but you can replace the automatic with a manual. It is a big job and if you do not do it your self would probably cost a lot more than selling the automatic truck and buying a manual truck. The manual will require different shift linkage, adding clutch pedal and parts to actuate the clutch, and you may need a drive shaft of different length. It is also common for automatics and manuals to use different rear axle ratios, and even the Electrinic Control Module and some wiring may need to be changed. Maybe that automatic is not so bad after all.

yea but its a pain. better off finding a stick car

That really just depends on the car and if it's a 4,5,or a 6 speed.

The ECU for an automatic can be used in a manual transmission. However, it will not work vice-versa with the ECU from a manual transmission in an automatic.
