just joined up hoping i could find out somethings wrong with my gearbox.
the shifter sits real far over to the right so when i put it in 1st it looks like its in 3rd gear.
and while it pushed over that far its really hard to put in gear 5 and reverse.
wat could be causing this?
cheers

check if the bolts that attach the g/box to the bellhousing are there.. they may have fallen out and the box moved..

Also check the car doesnt have a broken engine mount/s, or missing bolts from the engine mount to the block..
Same thing happened to my wagon, and turned out that the bolts had fallen out of the drivers side mount, and and the motor had fallen over..

Cheers
David
