transmission

my automatic transmission is starting to go on my 96 prizm and was wondering if it would be hard to switch the transmission to manual and if there were conversion kits out there for prizms/corollas and about how much the whole job would cost (money and time)
Thanks!

Re: transmission

jawberger,

Unless you have much invested in your present car you'll be better off buying a car in the right configuration. Get the right car and make your efforts more effective. However, to each his own... Goodluck, whatever you do.

If you do proceed to modify, post your efforts for those of us that are still curious. It's always good to stay informed.

Re: transmission

Well i was having the same issue so i tried to get this fixed myself but it lead me to different problems so i think the best would be to contact a mechanic who will help you without any issue .
