brady2005 I filled it up with the ford honey, 50.00 dollars for 2 quarts!. I Filled it right up ( book says 1.9 quarts for the mtx, I put two and didnt lose a drop) till it was about to come out of the fill plug. Tightened the fill plug, cycled through the gears fired it up and drove it for about an hour. It did feel better but I have to drive it a bit more.

brady2005 It shifts fine with it off though.. so I doubt cables are an issue

05focusST91 Change it first, but its probably a problem with the cables or the roll pin on the shift tower on the tranny is no good.

brady2005 Not since the clutch job. Trying to get ahold of them now.. they obviously didnt do the trans fluid because when I cracked the drain plug again, there was very fine metal particles in the fluid.. do you think I should just change it? Obviously with the ford honey? Also when I was under the car I noticed below the meter on the airbox there was an open vaccuum port?? Normal?? Should I cap it??

I checked my shift linkage and it seems it was adjusted properly.. the up amd down was as far in as it could go on the thread lock.. maybe its stretched?? Its not all the time, but its definatley noticable kinda in first, but more so 2nd and 3rd.. 4th and 5th are perfect.
