I just had the same problem happen to me today. I was coming up on a redlight and it was hard to shift out of 6th gear. When i went to put it into first, it was rather hard as well. But driving it seemed fine. 6th was the only gear that remained hard to put it into or take it out of. When i went to leave the store, it was nearly impossible to put it into reverse. But when i got home, it was going in almost like normal, still a bit tougher than it should have been though. Any help would be great.

i believe i've also had the same problem. my shifts have been getting a little clunky and after i've warmed up the clutch with some stop and go traffick it bccomes almost impossible to shift into any of the gears. I have my transmission at the shop right now in pieces. Haven't found the cause of my frustration by I'll let you know what I find, or maybe you guys could give me some help it what it could possibly be.
On the upside, I think I'll be installing a better clutch while the tranny is out.

sounds like we have the same problem. I have changed tranny fluid and took my hurst shifter off to clean it and grease it but it still does the same thing.I think it may have something to do with the hydrolics. will bring to tranny shop this weekend hopefully can figure it out. if you find anything out please let me know i don't want to pull tranny if i don't have to, thanks
anybody else have any ideas.

I had a little bit of tranny fluid around the base of my shifter. Is it normal for it to come up through there?
05-08-2006, 07:50 PM #8
yes i had it in mine also there is a passage wich allows fluid to come up to shifter linkage to keep it oiled. you can even fill tranny with fluid from there.

Well, after pulling the shifter, everything from that side looked ok. I'm guessing it is either the synchros or the forks are bent. Anyone know a good place to get some Viper shift forks?!

Do yourself a favor and first check the clutch release system. What you describe is a dragging clutch.

Will do, thanks man!

Insane, did you ever figure out what was wrong with yours? Now mine seems to be doing fine, except for 3rd gear. It wants to pop out everytime unless i hold the shifter up into 3rd gear. I can feel something hit at least once, if not twice in the shifter wanting to knock it out of 3rd. This is the only gear doing this. Any suggestions? Also, i think i can hear a sometimes roaring sound coming from the tranny, and every now and then the sound of something rattling around in there. THis really sucks.

30thBird how do you check clutch release, I do think my clutch is not fully disingaging.
cocheese, I tried to bleed clutch with mighty vac through clutch res. and it has gotten alot better. will try again tomorrow to see if i can get it any better.
As for your shifter popping out of 3rd it sounds like its not fully engaging in gear and it will kick it out of gear.
will let you know tomorrow what happens after i try bleeding it again
