2007 V6 Mustang-manual Transmission trouble

Hey guys, My mother has an 2007, V6 Manual transmission . It is now at the dealership for a 2nd gear issue.

Right now it is intermittent , when she downshifts form 3rd to 2nd it will sometimes not go into 2nd. Its like it just doesn't want to. It will usually NOT grind when this happens but has on occasion.

The trans as already been replaced once due to this problem and now it is starting again. It starts intermittent then begins getting worse and worse. The dealer claims nothing is wrong but warranty is nearing its end so i think they are playing their game.

does anyone know what this problem is and is it common with this Trans.

sorry for the long post.

Don't let the dealer tell you that the problem is normal. It's not. If you need to go as far as writing a letter to Ford, go ahead and do that. Downshifting from 3rd to 2nd shouldn't be a problem unless you are spinning to many rpm in 3rd. I've never had this problem on my car. The only one that should be difficult is the 2nd to 1st shift. Once in a rare while I'll have the 2nd to 3rd brick wall and I used to have a problem with the 3rd to 5th shift (it would grind and clunk), but I just stopped doing that.
You should be able to spin up around 3500rpm in 3rd gear and shift into 2nd gear no problem.

she isnt shifting too early / RPMs too high , she has been driving manual trans since she was a kid. (learned on my dads "69 camaro SS ) And as i said in my first post replacing the original Trans fixed the issue but now it is starting in this trans.

Sounds like this is common on this Trans though.

I believe bushings are only in the shifter, synchros are in the tranny and are what wear making it difficult to shift into gears.

not sure if this would help but I had 50k on a 2010 v6 and the the tranmission was ok but not smooth. I had problems getting into first. I drained my fluid and used mobile 1 synthetic and it made a huge difference in the smoothness of the transmission...

Good luck

i went through two transmissions. ford didn't know what was going on. i gott tired of them telling me that it wasn't covered under warrenty even though i had the 100,000 mile warrenty. i finally got tired of it and put a tr3650 from a 2006 mustang gt in it. since then i've had no problems and as far as smoothness and shifting, it has a quality feeling that the v6 could never match. i tried the hurst shifter, the steeda shifter, and even the factory shifter. not any differnce for the v6 trans. the tr3650 is the cats ass. best upgrade i've ever done. i think ford screwed up on the specs of the flywheel. plus the t-5 has been known to be a weak trans. good luck!

I know this is an old thread, but I'm curious. How difficult was it to make that swap?

Can you provide details on your manual transmission from a GT into a 2005-09 V6.
My transmission is terrible.
New flywheel?
New clutch disk?
New pressure plate?
New transmission mount?
Clutch cylinder
shifter
???
