  1. Am I screwed?

    5.0L Tech
    How do I get this back together? It seams that the front, with the ball and spring, will not go down far enough for the shaft to go into the block.
  2. Top of shifter decor is peeling

    2011-2014 Mustang Talk
    The top of my automatic shifter has the decor on it slowly starting to lift and peel. I know it's silly and such a small issue, but it bugs me. Is there a replacement for this anyone knows about, besides changing the whole shifter knob?
  3. Hurst shifter help?!?!?! Please?!?!?

    4.6L Tech
    Hello all. I desperately need some help with getting a Hurst shifter. I have a 2004 40th anniversary GT and already dead set on getting the Hurst billet pro shifter for the tr3650. I am absolutely disgusted by the stock shifter boot on our cars... It is so unnecessarily big and ugly. I love...
  4. Hurst short shifter

    2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    Does anyone know if the 2010 v6 Hurst short throw shifter will work on a 2007 v6? I put it on my moms 2010 but she is trading it in so I wanted to take it off and put it on my car. Some websites even advertise them as 2005-2010 and I don't see any difference.

  6. Shift ball restoration

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    As you can see by the picture the numbers on the shift ball in my Bullitt mustang have rubbed off. They appear to have been engraved in rather than printed on the ball.

  7. Vibration at 70km/hr and up

    2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    So I have this vibration and it's driving me insane, it starts at 70km/hour and the button no matter what the conditions are. The vibration gets worse as the speed goes up at 120km exactly it's so bad you can hear it over the cranked radio. I feel as if the vibration is coming up through the...
  8. Weird sound coming from the front of my car

    2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    I bought my 2011 5.0 just a week ago with 14,000 miles on it. A few days ago, I noticed a strange clicking sound from the front/side of my car. It happens when I accelerate out of the low gears, like 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Also, every now and then I smell a burning smell. I'm almost 100% sure I'm not...
  9. Best shifters for 03 GT

    I recently picked up an 03 GT convertible with a 5 speed. I am thinking of getting an aftermarket shifter. Is there anyone that has tested and rated the ones in the market? Any input on which might be the better choice?
  10. Shifter brackets and aftermarket shifters

    2011 - 2014 V6 Mustang Tech
    I've been putting up with my stock MT-82 for a year and half now. I'm so tired of the crunchy 1-2 shifts, no being able to shift around corners, etc. and I'm thinking about spending some money to find a solution. I recently noticed the new Blowfish brackets that supposedly fix all my complaints...
  11. 2000 Mustang Automatic: Transmission stuck in first gear!

    V6 Tech
    I've had my v6 for about 3 years now and this is the first inkling of any transmission problem I've had. I was driving home the other night when I got off the highway and slowed down to drop off a friend. I attempted to put the car in park, but the shifter decided to move freely between every...
  12. Shifter For Daily Driver

    2011-2014 Mustang Talk
    I have seen various threads singing the praises of aftermarket shifters but also mentioning things like noise and vibration. I haven't had any trouble with my factory shifter (or trans) but I have noticed that it can be sloppy at times and even prone to selecting the wrong gear when shifting...
  13. MT-82 Stock Shifter Parts

    2011-2014 Mustang Talk
    I have an MT-82 transmission that I am going to use in a custom application. However, I am missing some parts in the external shifter assembly.

  16. Several Issues To Address

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    Figured I would save some room on the AFM servers and roll all the questions into one thread. First off I have a 06 GT with an automatic transmission. Sometimes when I put it into drive I pull too far down into 2nd gear or so. When I shift up to drive the indicator on the shifter says drive but...
