94 gt broke down

Okay so I had to park my car at a friends house tonight because that is all the farther she would make it. I wasn't driving very agressive today at all. But the problem is when it is in drive the car sounded like it is in neutral just reving up and won't move I tryed shifting it down to first then second but the same thing is happening. and there is this god aweful noise coming from the trany area. I first thought it was the drive belt loose cause that's what it sounded like but it's coming from the trany.

You will have to find a T-5 and I see people do them all the time for right under or around $1000. You have to swap the PCM a lot of cables etc etc. do some research on it and you'll find a lot of info seeing how it's a very common thing to do.

Update. Okay we are pretty sure it is electrical because the car will drive after it is turned of for a little bit but then it won't get into gear after driving it for like a minute. Would we be right and saying that it is electrical?

As shifty 5.0 stated above trans is toast. Round up t-5 swap parts or rebuild the ole Aode.

By chance did you check the fluid. Is there any in it? Is it leaking any.

New trans. Now would be a good time to get an AODE built with 4R70w guts and a nice converter. Car will feel like a completely different animal.

AODE is the auto trans you have now. 4R70w was 96-up but pretty much everything now is going to be the 04 revision which is very very strong. A converter is basically the "clutch" for the auto.

If you have a 94/95 car and want to get a manual, there are extensive swap threads on how to do it. Plan on spending about $1500 if you are doing it yourself. If having a shop do it... I'd just get a rebuilt auto and call it a day...

What are the pros and cons of rebuilding the automatic and/or swapping to a manual?

Well are you comfortable pulling the exhaust/transmission out and doing the conversion yourself? If not the biggest pro for the auto is going to be a shop is going to be able to just pull and swap in a new auto directly and it'll be cheaper.

Well swapping in a manual at a shop is gonna cost ya 2k will everything all said and done.


A AODE/4R tranny will be 1800 to 2000 with everything, approx.. Plus it will hold way more power and shift snickity quick.

MAC longtubes fit with the auto just fine and can be installed with the motor in the car. Driver's side comes up from the bottom and the pass side goes in from the top. Motor must be jacked up all the way until the back of the intake touches the firewall and the starter removed. Takes someone who works on these things relatively often 3-4 hours working alone. Stage 8 locking bolts are always a must IMO.

I was actually being sarcastic lol. ppl who say **** like that have never driven or ridden in a legit fast automatic. If they had, they'd stfu about how autos are for sissies or whatever.

Well what is your budget? You should also replace the converter while its all out. I'd get quotes from this shop for an auto rebuild vs the manual swap. See if they know what you are talking about when you ask them if they can use 4R70w internals and install a shift kit. If not, you might want to get in touch with a builder and have one shipped in. Also not sure what your downtime can be on this thing.
