Manual transmission problem
I've got a 2003 Coupe GT with about 5,000 miles on the clutch.
So I went to get in my car this morning, and I couldn't get it into reverse. It was really hard to get it into any of the other gears. With the engine off it goes into reverse or any gear just fine, but with the engine on it takes a lot of muscle, no grinding noise or anything, just hard to do. It drove just fine yesterday! I drove it hard yesterday, but not abusively.
I'm totally confused, anyone have any idea what's going on? Is it safe to drive to the dealer an hour away? Thank you!!!
Update: Called the dealer, he said since there is no grinding perhaps either the shifter or the clutch is just out of adjustment. I can't find any threads on here dealing with the shifter adjustment cables, guess I'll pop off the shift boot and have a look and then try to drive it to the dealer.
