    When your automatic transmission stopped shifting, that was a huge sign of impending disaster.
    I'm assuming you are over the 100,000 mile mark or you are not the original owner - otherwise it would be warranty eligible.
    It's not looking good for you unfortunately. The "manual shift" is basically you shifting the automatic transmission. There is absolutely no difference in any of the components. There is no separate manual transmission function, stand alone. Therefore, unforunately, you need a good transmission diagnosis, and very likely a replacement at this point. Best of luck and Happy Holidays.
