#61 of 151 1st and Reverse hard shift
Jul 25, 2009 (8:24 pm)
I have a 2007 Mustang V6 with a T5 manual tranny. About 50% of the time the tranny is perfect.Sometimes it won't go into first or reverse . I have pulled so hard on the stick I thought it would snap and then like flipping a switch it will fall right into place..once the car is going the transmission works and sounds perfectly. It has no noises , no grinding , no slipping and no leaks..Ford told me it is " normal operating condition" BU%^&IT...Any suggestions would be appreciated

HELP,,I am having a hard time locating a part. Does anyone out there know where you can pick up a stock shift linkage for my 2007 V6 5Sp T5 tranny?? Ford wants to sell me the entire shifter assem. for $600.00 Can. All I want is the linkage. It is a 3/4 " square steel rod about 10" long with to studs at either end. Or is there an aftermarket linkage that will work Thanks Guys and Gals in advance

I would try junkyards. Must be a wrecked one somewhere. Search internet for recycled parts.

Hello: I'm running into similar issues with a 2009 GT I just bought in August. The trans is louder then how I think it should sound. Bought it back to the dealer twice and the technician stated he hears something but wasn't ready to say anything was wrong. He did comment that he thought the sound was coming from the trans. He sent out an inquiry to Ford to see if there were any other complaints and supposedly Ford said no. After reading these posts that response sounds like alot of bull. I notice this problem more when the windows are up and it sounds like the noise is coming from the floor on the passenger side. For the first couple of weeks I drove it around with the windows always open to better hear the rumbling of the engine. Since it's been getting colder the windows have been up more and now it's more noticeable. Not a clunking sound but more like the gears get louder, especially in second gear. Get's louder when I accelerate and rpms go above 2,000. I love the car but this sure puts a damper on the whole purchase. I may just bring the car to my own mechanic who also installs transmissions to get his opinion.
