"It's possible, but the aggravation of rounding up all the parts, and after about $2000 is spent, the automatic starts looking good. Maybe you can find somebody that wants to swap."

That isn't anywhere near correct. Unless you are not a mechanic at all. If you aren't going to do the work yourself, you would be better off selling your automatic car and buying a manual. But if you know how to turn a wrench and can put things in the same place you got them from, but on a different car, you can do this conversion yourself.

It doesn't cost anywhere near $2000, if you do the work yourself, you can do it for under $500. What you need to do is go to a pull it yourself junk yard, find a 92-2000 civic, 94-2001 Integra or 93-97 del Sol. Remove the pedal assembly, the clutch master cylander (on the firewall next to the brake booster), the line that goes from the clutch master to the slave cylander (on the transmission), the slave cyl., transmission and the transmission mounts. You will also need shift linkage for a manual transmission.

If you have an Integra, any 94-00 Integra linkage will work. If you have a SOHC Civic any 92-00 Civic linkage will work (except 99-00 SI) If you have a del Sol, you need del Sol linkage. SOHC and DOHC linkage is not interchangable.

It is easier to do this conversion with the engine and transmission removed from your car. Put the parts onto your car in the same place you got them off the car at the junk yard.

This works on all of the cars listed above, the parts will be interchangable except for the shift linkage.

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.

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.

This is a very difficult conversion, and without a donor vehicle for parts, extremely expensive. My advice. Sell the vehicle you now have a buy a manual transmission.

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

Purchase a vehicle with an automatic transmission.

User Avatar

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

A direct conversion is not possible. Whey are different technically.

User Avatar

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

Converting from the stock auto to the stock AX15 tranny is no problem. It uses the same mounts and everything.

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.

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

Height is not a unit of measure, it is a direction. There is, therefore no conversion possible.

If it's an automatic, most likely a Turbo 350.

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

Millimeters is a length and mm2 is an area. There is no conversion possible. 200.00

If you have enough money any conversion is possible.

"Anything is possible," as they say, but it will next to impossible because the Haldex clutch uses a lot of electronics to change the torque split from front to rear. It wouldn't be so hard if it was a fixed split.

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

The conversion is not possible.Centimetre is a unit of length and the litre is a unit of volume.
