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

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

you cant, it has an automatic belt tensioner.. you would have to replace the belt if it has stretched

is the vw stick? or automatic? what yr? etc? some years the stick will lock out, and you can use a simple tow bar setup...? if it is automatic I am not sure how you would do it...

You can fit a manual transmission into an automatic Ford Mustang as long as you have the same engine but you will have to change a lot of things. Depending on the year, you would have to change things like the computer, wiring , steering column to add the clutch, etc. It would be better to buy one that's a 5 speed already.

If this is an automatic, it would be in view on one side or the other close to the firewall. If this is a stick or manual transmission you don't have a dip stick.

Because it is. The transmission of an automatic does for you what you have to do if driving a stick. it does that whole clutch in shift for you, supposedly making it more efficient in usage of gas.

That would be the 4L80E if it is an automatic. Not sure on the stright stick.

User Avatar

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

Don't do it. It's a sports car, learn to drive a stick. If you are replacing an automatic transmission... then I would think this would be a good opportunity to upgrade to a manual. You're cutting off about 20hp and 10ft lbs of torque by keeping an automatic transmission.

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.

A Ford Mustang GT would be a V8

Assuming this is an automatic transmission, you would add ATF through the transmission dip stick tube.

User Avatar

Not all do I would hope. It's something wrong with your gears most likely.

User Avatar

You would have to replace the transaxle, you would have to cut a hole in the floor for the shift column, you would have to get the engine ECM reflashed, you'd have to install a clutch pedal and all mounting hardware.

User Avatar

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

User Avatar

Sure. Purchasing a doner truck that is automatic for parts would be the way to go.

The word Mustang is not in the Spanish vocabulary, it would be used the same as in English, except it would be pronounced differently. A mustang is a horse, the Spanish word for horse is "caballo".

User Avatar

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)

You convert the fraction do decimal exactly as you would a positive fraction. Then you stick a minus sign in front.
