This could be "normal" wear - as transmissions are used, the gears and pins and keys and everything else inside bend and wear down. As a result there's going to be some slop in the components eventually.i have a 05 tibby gt 5 speed, lately when i go to reverse, the shifter wont move. i turn car off then it goes right to reverse. anyone know problem?
Oh, another thing springs to mind: your shifter bushings might be on the way out. When I got my '04 GT this February, the shifter bushings were almost completely gone - shifting felt horrible and it was kind of difficult to get first, second, fifth and sixth gear in (as well as reverse). The bushings are like little rubber pucks with holes in them, with a brass bushing on the inside. The brass bushing had gotten stuck due to rust buildup, which caused it to rip from the rubber, after which it just carved huge holes into the pucks.thank you sir!!! i'll try that
