    Shifter problems

    Well I have a problem with my Hurst shifter sometimes its tight and doesnt move and the spring back motion is working!! Now its really loose in the gears i can move the stick, its def not tight!! Then when i put it in neutral it doesnt spring back or anything it stays where i pull it out!! Its very wierd it still shift its just loose and doesnt spring back! Im setup to take it to my mechanic monday to let him look at it, I was hopin some of you would have some ideas what it might be. I just installed the shifter in Decemeber and it has less then 2,000 miles on it!!

    Frankly there has been so many issues with the Hurst shifter I do not even now where to begin. You can Google and just read for a year.

    Did you install the shifter yourself? And did you grease the nylon cup that goes into the shifter rail in the transmission?

    Cammed -- No i didnt install it i had a mechanic that i trust do it... and he is going to look at it Monday for me. When i asked him about the nylon cup he said he greased it good, but the stick feels like it has no springs at all...

    If you have the OEM one still you could slap that on and see if the shifter is even the prooblem. bf you buy more.

    The previous owner installed a B&M and it broke a week before Thanksgiving last year. Worked fine for me after almost 3 years of owning the car. I now have the Hurst/Billet Plus shifter. I like it.
