Transmission

Just wanted to know if its better in the sense of difficulty, and money to take out an automatic tranmission and put in a manual tranmission or just sell the car and get the same type but with a manual?

Depends on the car in question as to the difficulty and cost involved!

1994 3000GT SL 124600 miles automatic. transmission is having issues: shifting to driver or reverse only increases the rpm, car doesn't move, but pressing on the brake for a couple seconds it will then start moving, possible a belt slip?..

Hang on a minute.....you press the brake peddal to start the car moving?....or you press it and then release it?

It needs the brakes to pressed to change the shifter to reverse or drive. When it is on drive or reverse and I release the brake pedal, rpm slowly goes up but no push. I have to hold the brake for a couple seconds before the rpm goes down below 1000(700-900) before it starts moving. This is just the first of the series of problems. Other times like entering the freeway it will just raise the rpm and no increase in MPH but instead a decrease. Getting a service manual this or next week so I would still like if possible an idea of what could be the problem. Thanks.

i got the same problem on mine, cept for me its just an idle issue, i.e i start up the car, normal idle, but if i give it gas it has about a 10% chance of stalling, then some time i turn it on and it hits up to 2500RPM right away then into drive/reverse it only goes down to 1500, rele annoying cuz it makes the car work more than it should when i holf the brakes, i suggest checking the IAC or throttle body maybe? i used some carb cleaner and it fixed the stalling issue, mostly.

hmmm, this is just a guess but could be some electrical problem with the transmission..... i forgot who it was that said this but, apparently, "according to statistics", around 90% of automatic transmission failures (or issues) are due to overheating and electrical malfunctions.... thats wat i heard (or read). though i do think its very possible that maybe some sensor isnt working right.

True on the overheating part. My auto teacher used to build automatic transmissions for Ford and told us that almost all transmission failures are due to overheating.
