I have a '99 Elentra with a good body, AC, engine but the transmission
is slipping a LOT... not drivable. The car is great basic
transportation. I've replaced an engine on my daughter's Honda Accord
but never replaced a transmission. How hard would it be to either
a) replace it with another auto trans (IF I could find one in good
shape... may be a tall order to find a good one for that year)
b) convert it to manual and put in a manual transmission for that year.
I would think that with all the electronics on that car and with the
pedal cluster not being for a clutch to start it would probably be quite
a chore to do option (b), but I prefer manual transmissions.
I am looking for options cause my eldest son is coming back stateside
after his overseas tour of duty and the 2002 Elentra I am currently
driving would make a good car for him.
I was impressed with the 2012 Accent/Elentra/Sonata but don't want to
spring for a new car right now. Might consider a used Elentra but would
prefer a less expensive option.
