Hi I recently bought a 2000 mustang V6 and it has always been a little hard to get into first gear. I know this is normal because I have had previous mustangs but now it has gotten much worse to the point where sometimes I can not even get into first gear at all when I am at a stop. Here is the info I have:
-It can get into first when the car is moving
-It is worse when the car is warmed up
-Once in gear if I keep the clutch in the car does not move forward at all and I have to release the clutch about 1/3 of the way for it to engage
-I changed the transmission fluid which did not help
-no grinding
-no slipping
-I have tried fords stock clutch adjustment by pulling up the clutch pedal

Please any help would be greatly appreciated and I have searched through many threads with no definitive answers.

Thanks!

It sounds like you clutch is worn. It's basically made out of brake pad material and wears out just like brakes. And, like brakes, the number of miles between re-builds depends entirely how the car was driven.
