The main advantage that automatic cars have is the ease of which one can learn to drive in them. However, it takes a lt longer for changes in gear to take effect.

Can a p platter on green p plates who drives an automatic transmission drive a continuously variable transmission?

An automatic transmission needs no manual shifting - a continuously variable transmission needs no manual shifting. Based on those parameters I believe that you are okay.

Can you change a manual transmission car into an automatic transmission?

You cant change the actual manual transmission into an Auto howeverr you can take out the manual and put in an automatic transmission instead. You can but it will take time and can carry a high price. The 'simplest' way is to get the equivalent engine/gearbox as a complete unit and do the transplant. If you can get a donor vehicle so much the better. There are always those little bits you need that are difficult to source.

What type of power steering fluid 1994 Nissan sentra 1.6?

Based on the user manual and the repair manual...your transmission and power steering fluid are the same - Dexron II (Dexron III is supposed to work as it covers those that recommend II and III) This is automatic transmission fluid NOT power steering fluid.

Can you convert a 1990 Chevy truck 6-cylinder 5 speed to an atuomatic transmission?

Sure you can. It is much easier to turn a manual to an automatic than it is to change an automatic into a manual. the easiest way would be to pick up a hurst shifter. You can get one at just about any performance store. It would bolt on right where the shifter is right now. you would also need an automatic transmission, those trucks came with a 700R4 if I'm not mistaken. If you need anymore info, just ask.

How many gears does the Saab 900 have?

What year? Manual transmission or automatic? Classic 900 (1979-1993) or Next Generation 900 (1994-1997)? The first 900s (1979-80) came with either a 4-speed manual or a 3-speed automatic. The 5-speed manual arrived in the 1981 model. Those same basic gearboxes were part of the lineup through the end of the model run in 1993 (of 1994 convertible).

How looking to change 1985 manual Ford Laser radiator with 1989 auto Ford Laser and noticed that the auto radiator has 2 extra pipes coming from it can you still change the radiator?

If the overall dimensions are correct with two radiators you can use the automatic radiator to a manual tranny car. Those two extra pipes are for the transmission fluid cooler. You have to block those two pipes, or connect them. I used my manual '89 Escort more than 3 years with an used radiator which came from an automatic car.

No, not in the least. And maintenance on those transmissions is much more than it is on the manual transmissions.

What is the difference between manual transmission automatic transmission and Continuously Variable Transmission?

As I understand it: Manual: There are a set # of gears (usually 4-6) and you switch between them as required. Automatic: Again a set # of gears (usually 3-5), the transmission switches them automatically, based on current speed and other variables CVT: Instead of having a set # of gears, there is a belt (or chain?) between the only 2 "gears" that exist. Difference being that 1 of those "gears" changes it's circumfrence, giving it an unlimited # of gear ratios. The transmission determines what the appropriate gear ratio should be, based on speed, how hard you press the pedal, load, etc. Hope this helps.

Why does my 2000 jeep grand Cherokee larado make noise's when I am putting it in gear?

Would need a better description of the noises and also whether you had an automatic or manual transmission in order to answer this. As is, problems with the torque converter, problems with the vacuum system, problems with the solenoids if it's an auto, clutch in need of replacement if it's a manual... . all those possibilities and more.
