heh, those of you that know me, know that my car is a piece of crap.
here is the new "somethings wrong with mclaren's car" thread:
out of the blue monday, my car got really hard to shift into any gear above second. the only smooth shifting now is: anything to neutral, 1st to 2nd, and reverse. 2nd to 3rd sucks and 3rd to 4th sucks and 3rd to 2nd sucks
i thought maybe my synchros were going, so i tried to revmatch. sometimes it works, most of the time it doesnt. sometimes when i try to go from 2nd to 3rd, i try to push it into 3rd and nothing, when i let up off the clutch it grinds. i have to put it into neutral, drop the clutch. push the pedal again and try to put it back into 3rd and it works sometimes. sometimes if i speed shift into 3rd and 4th, sometimes it goes right in.
sometimes i have to try to previous method AND revmatch on top of that. its getting really annoying.
i was doing some reading, and it led me to believe that some bushings are bad, or my shifting fork is bent.
i dont think my clutch is bad. no slipping or nothing and it catches fine.
i dunno whats wrong with my p.o.s. car, and im getting tired of it. my car will be paid of next month, so i could get a new car. but i dont want monthly payments for another 4 or 5 years, so thats out of the question.
could bad motor/transmission mounts also cause this problem? i now get a weird vibration when i reverse and when i step on it a little in third gear theres a loud thunk and some wheel hop, as if the whole engine is moving...
