hey all

not ford related, but figure the principals are the same:

driving the g/f's hyuandi accent - 5 speed manual - on occasion (and only recently) is wants to jump out of 2nd - you go to change from 2nd to 3rd, engage the clutch, start to move the gearstick & it rockets out of 2nd - it has yet to do it whilst driving in general, but i'd imagine it will eventually :?

so i have no idea about manuals - any thoughts? its still under warranty so i'd like to get it covered if i can :)

cheers

yeah bob had the same thing happen to my old corolla in 4th, what happens is the Gates that hold the stick in gear in nuetral are starting to wear and once they go you'll find it will pop out of gear while driving and then it'll get so bad that you can't even put it into gear with out it just popping out and 2nd will be useless.


Well that's what happened to mine anyway and could be completely different to the excel.
