How much would it cost changing your car from automatic to manual do you need to change the engine?

no but you need to install a pilot bearing in the back of the crankshaft to accept the spline for the tranny

It would be a lot more than just installing a bearing in the crankshaft!

You could end up by having to change the engine, you need gear lever connections, you might even have to have a new ECU, cost hundreds.

You can contact your local wrecking yards and try to locate the same vehicle you have only in a standard shift. The vehicle may be damaged from an accident but you would have all the parts needed to change over, every nut and bolt.

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.

For most engines there is no need to change the crankshaft to use an engine for an automatic or a manual transmission. For an automatic, connect a flex-plate to the crankshaft. For a manual transmission connect a flywheel.

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

If youre changing over a Taurus and its not an SHO then you will have to swap out the entire engine. SHOs were the only ones offered with stick and the manual transmission will not bolt up to a regular Taurus's engine.

Yes u MUST change the computer if you are changing the transmission from auto to manual (visa versa). The computers are different for the especially where the trannirs are concerned.
