Changing a transmission
 
Hey guys as some of you know, I sold my mustang a couple days ago. I have my eyes on this really clean Gt but one downside. It's a automatic. It's a white 98 gt. How much would changing it from auto to manual cost me. If I can buy the transmission off of craigslist used for a couple hundred bucks or in a junkyard. How much does someone charge for labor on something like that. I would not want to try it myself. Lol

If you aren't going to DIY it will cost you more to do the swap than to find a clean manual car. Keep looking. Also you aren't going to get a trans in good shape for $200.

Or just buy the auto. 98 is actually a good auto. Late 97-onward is when they stopped sucking.

Actually I found a 5 speed and going to look at it in like 30min. Will post how it goes. It's a 94 5.0

Good, give that biznitch a full tune up, drain/fill trans and diffs, oil change, plugs and wires etc... Let me know if you need any tips, 94/95 cars are what I spent most of my time on over the years.

Sweet, tomorrow I'm changing the oil, plugs and wires, disturber cap, and all the filters. And detailing if I have time

Hey the speedometer doesn't work. Is that the sensor messed up or the gear is not working

Autolite 25 coppers gapped to .054, Motorcraft wires, any old cap/rotor is fine, the 94/95 uses the FL1A oil filter and if the car has a lot of miles its probably a good idea to do the waterpump too. Its very easy on 94/95 cars, falls right off the front of the motor.

When you do the cap/rotor, look for a silvery dust inside the distributor. If it is there, you might as well do the whole distributor since the silvery dust is usually a sign of a failing PIP (pickup).

I'd also make sure the clutch cable is properly adjusted and do 3 quarts of synchromesh in the T-5, that's like mother's milk for transmissions and available everywhere. Fill through the shifter opening and this also allows you to see what/if any aftermarket shifter is in there.

Any mods on this car?

It has full flowmaster exhaust, hurst short throw shifter (it likes to vibrate a lot), and he says it has a mild cam in it but I don't know. You can almost believe it is by the exhaust if you listen real close but then again it could have a bad idle Bc it's has 200,000 miles. so basically it's stock.
