Occasional Trouble Shifting
I have a 2008 V6 with 120k miles on it. Not long ago, within the past month, I started noticing how it takes significant amount of effort to shift, even from first gear through fifth. Since then, getting into first sometimes was a big hassle, especially at lights. It seems like after 20 or so minutes of driving, its get easier to shift, but until then I have to let off the gas and let the gear "fall" into place. I've seen the posts about pulling up on the clutch pedal and shifting into 3rd or 4th before shifting into 1st, but that doesn't seem to do much. Reverse grinds 9 out of 10 times.
Is this common at this age/mileage of Mustangs? I've read up on using additives like the Lucas Transmission Fix, but is it worth it and/or difficult to do? Should I just fork over the money instead and get the clutch system replaced?
Thanks in advance for any help.
