My tranny is acting funny.

Its a sporradic(sp?) problem. Sometimes I have to force it into gear really hard, then the whole car starts shaking? Other times it just slides right into gear. I had gotten on it a while before it started doing this but nothing really bad right before it happened.

What gives??

How are your motor mounts.
U know what Blair he may have something here. The rear mount that's on the trans and engine will effect shifting. I say let's do the rest of the mounts, some shockproff gear oil and see if that cures it. :cool:

I was going to ask you eralier on the phone if you had check out the shifter linkage and rear motor mount. Crawl under there tomorrow and poke your nose around and see if anything is out of place. But if it persists, plan on pulling the tranny ASAP or you'll end up with a shredded trans like my junker. :(

if the motor mounts are shot, the motor will move too much which won't allow you to shift because it forces the shift linkage to bind or something

my tranny gives me a very hard time going into gear sometimes too. i have redline MTL and i have and installed Prothane MM's.. it has shifted fine with the old mounts but sometimes it would seem like i was going to snap the shifter trying to get it into gear. i have yet to install the shifter bushing so im hoping once that is in it clears up, but if it doesnt are there anyother ideas?
