Man I hope so.. im calling ford and asking if its the linkage that needs to be adjusted, when I originally brought it in they said they opened her up to look at tye syncros, so im assuming they changed the fluid and the syncros checked out ok. Being the mtx came out for clutch replacement im hoping its just the cables. Its not bad, its just a bit notchy thats all. But it botyers me after all they did to feel it be kinda notchy still. It was replaced because I couldbbarely get into gear when cold and was notchy when warmed up, now I can get it into gear when warm from cycling the gears for a second. Maybe they didnt open up the mtx and said they did? Befor I brought it in I opened up the drain plug on the transaxle and it seemed to have a red tinge to it but overall looked goldish. So maybe a fluid change and cable adjustment is needed? Il post back when I hear from them.
