    Yes bro, it is possible to convert ur manual EXI 96 into an automatic. To tell you the truth and not to discurage you, it would be easier to sell your manual or even trade it for somebodys automatic. There are many Civic Lovers in Islamabad/Pindi that would love to get their hands on a manual.

    It will be even more expensive to convert to an automatic than it is to convert to a manual coz there are more electoronic components involved versus the manual.(sensors, shift lock, ecu.)

    These are the parts required for your Manual EXI:
    1: Automatic transmission with sensors
    2: Automatic shifter complete with interlock switch and harness
    3: New ECU supported for automatic transmission
    4: Torque converter and plate
    5: Automatic mid shaft and shift cables (manual's is different)
    6: Auto flywheel cover, and plate
    7: Automatic pedal set (brake and accelerator)
    8: Automatic cluster showing gear in Speedometer
    9: The center shift console for gear knob needs to be changed as well.

    Only 'IF' fitted perfectly then will run as smooth as butter but mind it brother its a big budget project, trust me. Now the only question which I cannot tell u is, who is going to install all these to ur car here in Pindi/Isb?

    Issue 1:


    Engine check lite of cat converted after clear up by mechanic. He removed all the material from inside the Cat converter.

    Issue 2:


    I need to check my car Gearbox as gear shifting is very slow and fuel average is 11/liter without AC.

    One mechanic recommended to get you gear box changed.

    Anyone have any idea of mechanic who is specialized in auto transmission gear checkup or replace.

    Does he has proper equipment to open primary O2 sensor he might damage O2 sensor.
    Get it checked by a good computer electrician .

    A mechanic broke my civic reborn O2 sensor while opening it without proper equipment.

    The sluggishness of your car is due to no signals from O2 sensor thus wrong air fuel mixture causes less hp produced by engine
