Default tranny trouble :[

so as some of you may know, i have the 05 auto 4-speed reno.

yesterday night while getting on the highway, i was giving it just "normal" throttle to get on (like 45% throttle), and of course with the automatic tranny, it downshifts itself until the car can go that speed in a higher gear. well during that process, at about 3500-4k rpm, i start hearing this clicking noise and i feel something clicking along with it on my shift stick.

it scared the crap out of me, considering i REALLY dont want to have to buy a transmission. so does anyone have any advice or know what might possibly be the problem. i'd really liek to get it fixed asap, before i have to pay for anything else.

all help appreciated as always, but this time a little more. thanks guys.

I don't think a SX4 tranny will fit. I think you are limited to only used Optra/Forenza/Reno trannies if you want a direct bolt in.

Take it to the dealer, it could be on the engine side as well. Also you may want to put it in the hold mode and see if it does the same thing as well.

already tried that, and i wouldnt work.

but funny thing. i turn it on this morning, and its driving totally fine! i was happy/pissed/confused. idk.
but yeah, with this happening, im pretty sure i think my tranny is screwed.
and lately all i've been thinking about is doing a manual swap.
i mean, it cant be thaaat costly, can it?
i feel like the only difficult thing that you would need to do is get a new ecu and get the pedal assembly.
any insight on this?

I dont know for sure, but I always hear just buy a new car in m/t.

I'm looking for a lanos to guy, a/t are easy to find...and I'm dropping in a new engine/tranny either way...but even though I'm already putting a different tranny in it's not worth it at all to convert an a/t car to m.t

but idk. it'd be kinda weird going to a zuki dealership and trading in a reno for a reno.
i'm starting to think it might not be all that much to convert it.
it was would probably just be difficult to find some of the parts for it used. the manual tranny shouldnt cost more than $400. lightweight flywheel and clutchkit from you, dan. pedal assembly, and the ecu. erghh, idk. i really would just like a m/t. i really feel that the a/t is really slowing my car down.

Put it in hold mode. With the mods I have on my car it seems I get better over all performace in hold mode.

when i run, i do put it in hold mode, mainly because you can start in a lower gear without the wait of having the car downshift itself. but even then, in our cars being top end-strong, we need to get to our last gear as quickly as possibly. so in result, the more gears, the better; to a certain degree.

the way i've always thought of manual transmissions:
they can make a fast-car slow, and a slow-car fast.
