I have a "95" 3.8, 5- speed manual, Mustang that I just bought in June of this year. I know its old and needs A LOT of work done to it. I just bought it as a car to play and tinker with and to commute from U of A daily.
I am quite new to the car thing so I gotta lot to learn.
Yesterday I was driving my car to school and it acted just fine. Everything ran smoothly. The problem occurred when I was driving back from school to go home. I was sitting at a light and I went to shift my car from N to 1st gear and it wouldn't even engage or catch.
So I double clutched and still, nothing. I could barely force the car into gear. It was VERY difficult. After 2 mins of sitting at a green light I finally got it into gear, forcing it some. Then drove off normally.
Then when I got home I put it into first and put my parking brake on and parked it for 1/2 hour.
I came back outside and I still could not get it into gear. I just would not let me put it into gear.
My dad tried it and forced yet again into gear and moved it.
Then today I did the same thing, though it wasn't quite as difficult, I know something is amiss.
Could someone possibly help me out? Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!
