People here can't help you fix your mt82. Take it to ford and let them figure it out.

Try the basics: Put a decent shifter bracket on and see if that helps.

Is your trans broken or are you just complaining about how it sucks occasionally? If it's because it sucks occasionally then yeah, get a shifter that doesn't suck and look at all the different things guys on here are doing to make these transmissions the best they can be. If it's straight up broken...yeah gonna have to pick up a replacement or get it rebuilt.

Autos are actually way better than the stick counterparts starting in 2011 but I digress.

Remove the clutch assist spring and install a mgw race spec shifter.

It's all personal preference. My crappy built manual beats any automatic any day of the week as far as having fun while you drive. If you're buying the mustang just for drag racing then the auto with some work COULD be better. But as a dd having an auto would be miserable. I'd rather take the bus than drive an auto.

Personally for me, a Mustang is a big V8, a manual trans and hearing its sound in the rev up and the overrun. I don't judge anyone who likes the auto. There is something for everyone.

Yea bud. Take it easy. I have nothing against the auto or anyone driving one. I just wouldn't own one as a dd. Just for me it's boring to drive.

I'm definitely not gonna call ANYONE out performance wise. I have an aftermarket axleback. That's it. Nothing performance wise done to my car.

The autos in the coyote is the way to go honestly. I've always preferred a manual. Until this car. I had plans for it and needed a trans to hold up. The auto is basically bulletproof and u never hear of any problems they have. But the mt82. Well there are countless threads lol

I'm just going to point out a few errors with this logic. Don't take it personally, it's just I've heard it before and I tend to spot things like this:

There will always be countless threads of manual problems, comparatively. This doesn't mean necessarily the box is a bad choice; that's a non-sequitur. There are far too many variables in the operation of a manual trans that can affect its demise which never make their way into the data presented. Nobody who's box blows up admits they had been powershifting at the track or multiply clumsily timing downshifts or missing shifts, etc. Auto gonna do what it's gonna do, regardless so, of course it is more durable on a statistical basis. There are also, numerically, far more GT Mustangs with MT than AT and that skews the conclusions you can draw from anecdotal reporting. As well, the MT buyer tends to be younger and more aggressive with the car, on the whole, affecting long-term reliability. Lastly, for every one blown up you hear about there are lots more that didn't blow up you don't hear about.

It isn't limited to the MT82. You hear plenty of *****ing about the TR6060 in the GT500 and Camaro SS, if you look around, too.

I'm not claiming there aren't any real issues with this box. I believe, anecdotally, that there were QC issues with outsourced parts in the box, like bearings. I can confirm when mine let go without provocation, that, was the culprit.

Just thoughts, is all...

I think most of the problem with the mt82 is the shifter and its components.

I agree, that's why I went with the Barton short throw shifter and two piece bracket, probably will also but the whitelie bushing everyone is talking about,,Mine shifts clean and hard with no lock outs, but I do admit in very low speed, if I step on the gas abit the let off, I can hear the tranny clunk so slighty, probably the drive train movig around lol.

The stock tune with the stock shifter will lock you out of 2nd at times to save gas. A tune will fix this.

I hear you, in your case it is. For me I would fall asleep at the wheel. I cannot own an auto. I have been driving for about 18 years, tomorrow as a mater of fact , and for me it's got to be a stick. I'm not knocking an auto, in fact I want to see your car one of these days when I make it out your way. There is no right or wrong when it come to preference. 👍 at the end of the day we have all made the right choice to own a mustang. That's the only right or wrong. Lol

Apparently there are still issues with the stupid assist spring and lots of ppl report any issues with the MT82 going away with the limp noodle stock linkage replaced with the new MGW setup. Others never had any issues so no idea. This is only stuff I've heard but it seems like its becoming more and more apparent that the MT82 is actually a really REALLY good transmission with a dip**** designed shifting setup that took about 5 years for someone to come up with a full comprehensive fix.
