My car has gone around 120,000 miles. The problem is with the shifter. which ocassionally gets stuck. It usually happens while shifting into third gear, so I have to pull the lever forcefully so that it would shift. Sometimes it would click and shift, whereas at other occasions it wouldn't shift until I press the clutch again. This keeps happening even though I had the clutch kit replaced. Other gears are easy to shift. What might be the cause of this problem?
Hello. There could be a problem with the shifter cable or the shifter linkage from the transmission to the shifter. There also could be a problem with the slave cylinder, causing it to be hard to shift at times. A lot of times when the slave cylinder is going bad, it causes the car to be hard to shift at times. I would suggest that you have a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, inspect your cars shifting issue.
