How much would it cost to change a 2004 Cavalier from an automatic to a manual transmission?

I do not have an amount, but I do know dealers are reluctant to do so because of a high cost involved. The car lacks many control modules and sensors that are required for the transmission, and could require structure change as well.

Since the Cavalier is a 2004 the conversion is easy. Sell it and buy one with the standard shift.

It's going to cost alot. You'll need the 5sp, linkage, mounts, console, going to have to drill through the floor dor the clutch pedal, the computer will need redone unless you swap it with a manual one.... The list goes on. Better to get a manual.

Sell the car and buy a manual. I hope you didn't buy the car new because GM's resale values rock on all of their cars now since they're basically giving them away.

If your transmission is manual, you will have to change gear. If it is automatic, you won't.

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

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.
