    Inspired by the guy who lost to the Jag while shifting into second - Every driving or racing video I watch, someone always comments on driver not knowing "how to shift, bro!" - and then they go on to say that if you practice enough then you can get perfectly smooth shifts in exactly 2...

    Hey friends, I've noticed on occasion that during driving a sound will resonate from the manual shifter area, resembling an annoying, slightly high-pitched rattle. After researching it a bit, I found a few other posts elsewhere about said issue, and it was apparently related to the cheap...

    Hey guys, I was cruising my 68 Mustang (Motor is a 73 302 that's pepped up with a c4. Had it for 3 years now.) Friday night and drove about an hour and a half. Made two stops, and then brought it home for the night. And I wasn't hot rodding around either. I went out the next morning so I could...

    Hi everyone, can the shifting be adjusted on a 2005 V6 auto tranny? My Mustang feels a little bit delayed in down shifting. I need to press the accelerator hard on the floor for maybe 2-3 seconds before it down shifts. Is this normal? I haven't changed the ATF since I bought the car 4 months ago.

    I have a 2008 Mustang GT, manual transmission, with no aftermarket parts, bone stock. Whenever i come off of the clutch in high gears (1,2, maybe 3) whether I am up shifting, downshifting, or moving in traffic, I get a squeak coming from the RR portion of the car. Can't tell whether it's from...

    Ok, I am going to try and explain this the best I can. I have a 2005 V6 Manual Trans. I JUST got this thing back from a local shop that did the timing set for me. The shop owner told me he looked over my clutch since they had to pull the entire motor to do this job, and said it looked good, and...

    Hi Everyone, So this is a repost but thanks to the forum admins, my old thread can't be accessed (they moved it and every web browser gives a "Too Many Redirects Error" as well as they moved it to the wrong forum (2005–2010 V6 Tech). It happens and we all make mistakes, but for this reason I am...

    My 4.8L v6 2002 Mustang is having some weird shifting problems. Whenever I get up to about 40MPH (exactly 40MPH, actually) and then let off the gas pedal, about 2 seconds later I can feel what seems to be like the car shifting, but just a little late. And hard. My gas pedal is so loose that it...

    I had a 2004 V6 Mustang, and (God rest its soul, I was 16 and drove it way to hard) went through 2 clutches and a transmission WAY to quickly. About a week ago I finally saved enough money to go out and buy myself a 2012 Mustang Gt. With only 6,000 miles on it! So I come to the forums for help...

    Hey everyone I'm new to the posting world and I have a question about my manual transmission my problem is shifting to any gears really noticeable most in the 1st to 2nd because that's when I pick up speed the most anyways the problem seems to be that there is a pause between the shift almost...

    I've been having issues with the 1-2 shift in my car. When shifting from 1-2 at high rpms (I am shifting correctly) the car won't get into 2nd all the way and the gear will grind :nono: Will a new shifter and bracket help with this problem? Thanks as always

    I posted this on the 2011+ V6 forum, then I remember all 2011+ autos have adaptive shifting. So here you go. For a long time I've been wishing there was an easy button for the $%^*&# adaptive shifting. Then it hit me, I've been reseting the NoVRAM in mission computers for years by cycling...

    Hi, I've never posted on this site and just began reading. I hope I'm in the right place. I have a several questions and really looking forward to learning about this more. I have a 2012 GT, 6 speed, with 4500 miles. Can I do damage in a specific gear by running the tach too high or too low...

    Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my thread. This is my first post, but I have been lurking and reading for a while. I bought my 2011 Mustang V6 Automatic used about a month ago. I have noticed recently as of the last week or so some transmission problems. First, when starting...

    For about 3 weeks i had problems getting into and out of gears but it was very off and on that it would do this. Then it became stuck in 4th gear and will not come out. It will drive fine when in range of 4th gear and the clutch pedal will still put it in neutral. I have a B&M shifter. I have...

    I have a 3.8 v6 manual transmission 96 mustang. I noticed that it was hard to put it into gear or take it out while driving sometimes but it would soon switch. It did this off and on for about 2 weeks then i was unable to remove it from 4th gear. It will drive fine in 4th gear range and the...

    My everyday driver is a 2006 V6 5 speed manual. It isn't releasing all the way when I press the clutch in. And I'm pressing it all the way to the floor. Its hard to shift into gears. Especially second and fifth when I'm speeding off. Even under normal driving its hard to shift because it just...

    I have a 93' 2.3L and I have been having some problems with the transmission. The car has problems shifting into first and second gear. Unless I take off slow the gears will not shift. I have recently done a transmission flush, but has not helped. Any ideas what could be causing this problem?
