There is a 'range sensor' on most modern transmissions. When it goes bad, the symptoms often include 'hunting for gears'. The sensor is not terribly expensive. Much more information can be found at contour enthusiast web sites. They've been very helpful to me.

How do you distinguish manual transmission from automatic?

Physically, Manual Transmission has at least 5 gears including a reverse gear which is 'manually' changed by the driver during the course of the drive. Automatic Transmission however has a Park, neutral, drive 1 and 2, reverse. This is much easier to drive. They can be distinguished by the sound they make. A manual transmission hardly makes noise when gears are being changed. An automatic on the other hand, will make short bust of noises when gears are being changed. This is only valid for high powered cars. Also, if a manual car breaks down, it can be moved. automatic however, cannot be moved if it breaks down which is a big disadvantage.
