I have a 2003 Termi vert with 27,000 miles. In the last week, it stopped going into gear or becoming very sticky. When the engine is not running, it runs through 1-6 with ease but will not go into reverse. Engine starts and it still won't go in reverse. During driving it has become increasingly difficult to get into gear at high rpm. Could this be any of the following? A) clutch plate B) clutch fork C) clutch itself D) clutch master cylinder E) synchros (unlikely since I doubt all the synchros would go out at once)

Any help would be appreciated.

Merry Christmas!

Solved it myself...

For future reference if anyone encounters this problem, its a free ten second fix. With car off, pull the clutch pedal up with your hands. Then get in and push the pedal to the floor with your foot. SN95 Mustangs come with an automatic clutch adjuster. Whew that sure saved me several hundred dollars lol. Now it shifts good-as-new :)

I would look at it closer and make sure the teeth on the quadrant are still in good shape. They tend to strip when they get older.

Common problem on these damn things. One of these days I am going to change out my quadrant.

If it was me I would just buy one and keep it in the box until the plastic one breaks. Sometimes having a adjustable setup can be more trouble than it's worth.
:eek:
