  1. Mustang S550 General Discussion
    I find it very difficult to heel/toe downshift with my 2015 GT. It may be that I have become to inflexible to do it or it may be the placement of the pedals. Either way.... I am looking at a these two pedal kits. I would appreciate some feedback especially if you have experience with either...

    Hi everyone, this is my first Mustang purchase, my first fast car in fact. I'd like to keep this car in good operating condition without spending any time working under the hood myself (taking into account my relatively aggressive driving). As of writing this, I'm over the 1800 mile mark and...

    Hello all, I am new here and just trying to get some input on my transmission issue. I do apologize ahead of time if i have posted or asked my question in the wrong spot. I selected off topic because i figured it'd be the safest place to post without people getting mad if i have posted in the...

    Lately I've noticed that if I haven't driven my car in a couple days, the first couple of shifts I make are very hard. While the engine is still cold, as I shift from 1st to 2nd gear, the clutch feels like it is engaging/disengaging in a very "clunky" manner. I made sure to press the pedal all...

    Last summer, I found out the hard way what the throttle valve cable does and what can happen when it is disconnected. For those who don't know, the TV cable connects the throttle body to the transmission to vary valve pressure and change the shifting characteristics based on what the car is...

    Greetings from Saudi Arabia, I'm having a problem with my 2010 V6 4.0L Ford Mustang (manual). The gear gets stuck when I try to shift especially from neutral to first and from first to second gear. I have changed the clutch but the problem remains. I've noticed difficulty in shifting since I...

    so I tried a skip shift, after reading about how the 11-12 mustangs had skip shift built in. It worked great smoothest shift I've ever had, just went a little above 4000 rpm in first and shifted to fourth with rev matching, much easier then rowing through the gears. But I've read that this...

    So I recently picked up a 2012 gt. My only problem is that I have been driving manual for only one month on an Audi A4 and switching from a 200 horsepower engine to a 400 horsepower engine is giving me a few problems. Whenever I shift the car always jerks especially when starting from a stop...

    Hello Everyone, I just re-installed my 4 speed manual transmission after changing the flywheel. After all that fun I re-installed the shift linkage and shift lever, as I tried to shift into gears just to test it out I couldnt get it into any gear. I crawled back under the car.. the linkage is...

    Hi All, I recently picked up my 03 GT with 68,000 miles on her for $7,000 cash and soon realized I had a transmision problem. She had the dreaded 1-2 synchro problem and it has been progressing to 3rd as I have stockpiled the parts. On saturday I plan on doing everything, from the rear main...

    I installed a new shifter in my 2007 Mustang automatic. Now, I can't get the car into reverse. I have the shifter in park, and I know the shifter cable is in park as well since it is all the way in when I go under the car. PLEASE HELP ASAP!!!!

    So I just finished an EFI swap on a 68 coupe. Now my transmission won't shift. It won't upshift, or dowbshift. I can manually shift it from 1st to 2nd, and downshift from 2nd to 1st, but it won't go from 2nd to 3rd ever. I thought that I may have over tightened the luck down switch, so I...

    I am really getting tired of my shift knob and I am looking into buying a new one because the B&W one i have now is way to small and my hand swallows it. Im practically grabbing the boot. But I have a few questions. Will buying a new shift knob block out some shifter/trans. noise? If I put my...

    I am having problems with a C6 transmission I installed in my 66 coupe backing a 1970 302. Every time I change gears, park to reverse, reverse to drive, park to drive...it has trouble engaging the gear. It is a really new transmission with hardly any miles from a professional builder. I know...

    Hello, I'm new here so this is my first post, I've been lurking for a while though. I am looking to purchase the metal linkage that goes between the shifter and the transmission itself (the linkage that actually engages the gears). Specifically, I need the plastic & rubber bushing parts from...

    Hello Everyone, I just got my new 2011 Grey Mustang from a dealer here in DE and I love it. I had one as a rental when I was travelling for business and when I got back home I just had to pick one up...I know it worked. I was so enamored with the car when I was travelling for business I didnt...

    Been driving my new Mustang for the past two days and have been noticing that it's kind of difficult to perform smooth upshifts from 1st to 3rd. The first issue is it seems to take a while for the revs to come down after letting off the throttle. Most of the time I end up lurching the car...
