No. Every engine and transmission have very specific bolt patterns, but most engines have a couple or a few transmissions that will bolt to them from the same manufacturer as the engine.
The base model has a standard six-speed manual transmission, but an eight-speed automatic is optional.
However, not all manual transmissions work in the same way, and not all serve the same goal. While there are countless ways to design a gearbox, each meant for specific usage and outcome; there are manual transmission types that are the most common.
The Volkswagen Jetta GLI has it all—it`s affordable, fun, and practical. It is a compact sedan with many desirable and upscale features. Some say that the Jetta GLI is the sedan version of the Golf GTI. Both come with a turbocharged Inline 4-cylinder engine and a six-speed manual transmission.
The short answer is, no you cannot.
To install A manual transmission into a car that currently has an automatic, you`ll also need a Bellhousing, new clutch, flywheel, shaft assembly, and pedal assembly. Unfortunately, even the brake pedal of your existing pedal assembly isn`t compatible and will need to be altered.
The Jetta available in the Americas and the Middle East is powered by a 2.5-litre 5-cylinder 20-valve engine in most trims. This engine shares its cylinder head design with the V10 engine found in the Lamborghini Gallardo and Audi R8.
Currently, VW uses a 6-speed and 7-speed transverse mounted DSG transmission. The DSG transmission features both manual and automatic modes of operation. The design yields better RPM control for a more powerful and more instantaneous shift.
GM used the T-5 in the 1982 and up S/T series pickups and small Blazers, and their Astro vans. They began installing them in 1983 in the Camaros and Firebirds. Nissan also liked the idea of an internal shifter linkage five-speed, and they used this transmission in the 280ZX/300Z cars as well.
However, the Volkswagen Jetta SEL is the best, as it is the top trim level, although many will find that the Volkswagen Jetta SEL has everything they need. The Jetta GLI is even more impressive, with racing-inspired performance.
The all-new VW Jetta features a sleek design, advanced technology, and impressive safety features. From its roomy cabin design to its impressive performance capabilities, the 2023 VW Jetta offers an exceptional driving experience. Bonus, available in a 6-speed-manual transmission!
Well yes, but there`s a little more to it than that. First, check your owner`s manual for the exact specifications of your classic car`s transmission. The VIN plate on some classic cars may also give you the model of transmission installed in your classic car, or at the very least, the transaxle model.
Rebuilding a transmission can save you a lot of money over the short-term, while keeping car payments out of your monthly budget. For many, rebuilding their transmission is worth the initial cost. Rebuilding a transmission may cost you twenty-five hundred dollars or more, which is a significant chunk of change.
Cars.com reports that manual transmission replacement can be significantly cheaper, ranging between $1500-$3000 for `non-luxury vehicles`. Transmission Repair Cost Guide places the average cost of replacement from between $1800-$3400. The cost of buying a used/salvaged transmission can range between $800-$1500.
Currently, the Frontier transmission is easier to find and is much less expensive on the used as well as the new market than the T56. In addition, most people consider the Frontier 6-speed as at least as strong and possibly more substantial than the T56.
A proper example of the wind motif on Volkswagen models, the word Jetta comes from the German name for jet stream. Launched in 1973, the Passat was the first modern-era Volkswagen, and took its name from the German word “passatwinde,” or trade winds.
The sixth generation Volkswagen Jetta was primarily designed by Volkswagen Mexico under the supervision of Volkswagen Germany. Volkswagen`s target of increasing its North American sales removed the Jetta from the premium compact car market.
The 2021 Jetta has a top speed of 126 miles per hour (Estimated).
Both S and SE models use the 2.5-liter inline five-cylinder engine generates 170 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque.
Often transmissions, especially on FWD versions, are the same across Audi and VW.
DSG consists of two automated partial gearboxes

Because the dual-clutch transmission actually consists of two automated sub-transmissions – each with one clutch. One sub-transmission carries the even gears, the other the odd gears.

Torque converters are the oldest form of automatic transmission. Because of this, it is the most reliable automatic gearbox. It uses a planetary system for gears with an impeller and turbine.
A manual gearbox is traditionally better at transferring power from your engine to your wheels, so you can accelerate at a faster pace. Cheaper to maintain: Manuals generally require less maintenance because they have a less complex design than automatics.
You can find your vehicle`s transmission on your window sticker. It will be listed under Vehicle Description on top of the window sticker.

the most relevant questions and answers related to your specific issue

There is automatic transmission fluid in a manual transmission. Is it okay to leave or do I need manual transmission fluid?
ANSWER : This would depend on what the manufacturer recommends. Many manual transmissions do take automatic transmission fluid. If your transmission has ATF in it, it is very likely that it is supposed to have that in there. If not, it is likely that the transmission would not function properly with the wrong fluid. Many manual transmissions will also take engine oil as a lubricant. The best way to know for sure is to check your owner’s manual or call your local General Motors dealership to inquire.

2013 Ford Focus Transmission Issue. Is it worth keeping the car?
ANSWER : Hi There,
This is a known issue in this generation Ford Focus and some Fiestas with the "Power Shift" transmission and there have been numerous recalls and lawsuits. Although, it is would be difficult to determine how much longer your transmission will last given the fact that you have many new parts, I would not recommend junking the car as it may still provide some valuable life left for you. I would recommend taking it to the dealer to see if these parts may be covered under the recall.

Everytime I put car into gear it shuts off the car but idles fine
ANSWER : This sounds like a faulty speed sensor problem. Most cars have two speed sensors (one monitors input shaft and one monitors output shaft) which tell the computer what the gear ratio is of the transmission while in use. If either of these are not working properly, they will cause the computer to shut the car off for safety reasons. I would suggest having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose your stalling issuee and help you repair it.

Replaced alternator on car 2 times each time shows it’s charging 14v let car run for a little bit then test drive and car voltage
ANSWER : There are reports that the replacement alternators will not communicate with the engine computer and will not charge correctly. I recommend using only the manufacturer approved replacement part. It can be new or remanufactured but approved for use in the vehicle. Some lower cost alternators on the aftermarket will have charging problems since they will not communicate with the ECM on the vehicle and will stop charging.

I put the wrong key in my car and a few weeks later my car just shut down and it will not start I believe it’s the computer but…
ANSWER : Hi there. What had happened is the wrong key set the security to the vehicle. This is to prevent the vehicle from starting with the wrong keys. Try removing the battery cables (+) and (-) for 13 minutes. During that time, put the original key in the ignition and turn it on. Activate everything in the car even though there is no power. Then remove the key and hook up the battery cables. The computer should have reset and reset the security. If the security is still being tripped, then I recommend seeking out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you

I have Chevrolet Epica ls 2010 automatic 6 cylinder car. I want to change gearbox. Please tell me which car model’s gearbox will fit to my car.

I pressed my gas and my car didnt accelerate. There is transmission fluid in my car and my car cranks great and runs great…
ANSWER : This kind of reaction is often a sign of low transmission fluid or a faulty transmission control solenoid. As you know, automatic transmissions use pressurized hydraulic fluid to change gears. Every time a gear change is required, the car’s computer activates a transmission solenoid, which directs transmission fluid into the valve body to engage the correct gear. When this is faulty or not working properly, this can cause a delay in gear shifting or in some cases cause the car to not shift at all. This type of problem is amplified any time the transmission is low on fluid creating a drop in hydraulic pressure. I would recommend having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose and inspect your vehicle.
