My 98 is at the ford dealership right now for same problem except mine was stuck in reverse >>> ford just told me my bushing on my drive linkage broke and needs replaced . . . .they told me thats what caused my car to shut off while driving and also wont allow my starter to turn over to turn on the vehicle . . . told me to go get a linkage bushing from a junkyard or order a whole new linkage system of my mustang which with installation only ran me 150 bucks !!! hope this helps in some way
This could be a linkage problem. I am not familiar with this transmission, does the shifter go directly into the top of the tranny? If not make sure the linkage is not hanging up somewhere. I'll help if I can. Thanks..................DB.

The question is a little vague but I think I know what your referring to. All modern automatic transmissions have torque converters. This is the device that connects the engine to the transmission. All vehicle manufacturers like the trans to be nice and smooth shifting. That's great but it does come with some minor drawbacks. If you are facing slightly down hill and you put your car in reverse but do not step on the gas slightly I can guarantee that you will indeed roll forward. You can eliminate that issue by holding your left foot on the brake while you shift into reverse. Then, as soon as you feel the trans engage, gently depress the gas pedal with your right foot and it will eliminate that forward roll problem.
The answer is yes, any 5-speed from a 94-04 Mustang (4.6 or 3.8 doesn't matter, it's the same transmission). You'll also need the pedal assembly, shifter assembly, ecu from a 5-speed, 5-speed drive shaft, clutch and clutch cable, and flywheel. BUT, If u didn't know all that already... let alone the yes or no answer to ur question, I wouldn't advise doing an over
The throw out bearing slides on a collar behind the input shaft on the front of the transmission inside the bell housing. It will require removal of the drive shaft, shifter handle, transmission, & clutch cable to gain access to it. Recomend having this done by a professional.
these are just some suggestions to help diagnose, 1. check gear oil level low level can cause gear free spin if not efficient amount of gear oil causing a grind as entering gear. 2. If you do some agressive driving, or rest your foot on the clutch frequently while driving, can cause excessive heat in clutch causing warpage of clutch or flywheel, once it is warped will cause vibration to transmission causing shifting issues sometimes only in one gear if you have a service boot on your transmission bell housing you can pull this of and monitor smoothness of clutch an fly wheel while running and tranny in nuetral excessive runout is a sign of something warped. 3. is not so not easy most of the time third gear is the main gear for the syncronizers, generally the first gear to show issues when they are failing, The transimission would have to be pulled torn apart and inspected to truly diagnose this as your problem. Good luck
If you have a way to get it off the ground (i.e. ramps) then its a snap. First, go buy the proper part, drive it up on the ramps and set the parking brake. Then look for any cables and wire harnesses that are connected to the transmission itself and disconnect them, remembering where they go. Next is to have a floor jack under the transmission to hold it while you loosen and then take the transmission mount bolts out. Lower the transmission down and change the clutch plates. Follow the same procedure in reverse and it shouldn't take you too long to have it back on the road with a new clutch done by you!
