    Shifting issue!

    So guys ive been driving standard for about a month or so.
    3 times i have had an issue up shifting and the knob going outside of the gear.

    today it happened twice but the second time the atchual shifter elbow came out of place.. under the boot theres a cup type thing that holds it and it poped right out

    after about an hour we finally got it back in.
    just wondering what the **** i did wrong..

    i went 1-2 smooth. (start at stop light)
    goofing around a little bit shifted from 2-3 at like 5-6k rpm

    sounds to me like the bushing/cup that holds the shifter ball end in place needs to be replaced. That hard shift probably put just enough leverage on it to pop it out of place. I'm quite sure you can get one at any local dealer. Just keep in mind they might have to order it for you. If the car doesn't already have one installed, a short throw shifter stick would make sense to install now as well.

    In the mean time, take it easy on the shifter. Be gentle with it man.. quick shifts are fun, violent shifting just breaks stuff. You only need as much force as it takes to move the stick from one gear to another.. no more and no less.

    Racing is for the track..


    When moving at a rapid rate.. you shouldn't be looking at the tach, watch the road. Experience will tell you where to shift for the needs you have. Drive the care more, get used to it and you'll see exactly where you'll need to shift to stay in the power.

    I shift by ear and feel, always have.. so I cant really describe where exactly you should be shifting.

    Exactly what mangostick said.

    Experience is the best teacher.
    Life is like riding a bicycle in order to keep your balance you must keep moving.
