The transmission needs to be taken apart and have the second gear synchro replaced. i would start with just have BG sychro shift put in at a local shop that sells BG. that will help with the problem.

My gear is stiff and experiencing a difficulty when engaging second gear. other gears seems to be fine but the shifting is not smooth.


I suspect that it will be in the shift mechanism
If it is a cable shift then replace the cable
If it levers or other linkages check and adjust or lubricate as required
I doubt it is in the clutch as you haven't mentioned difficulty in selecting first gear only shifting from 1 to 2nd.

A carrier bearing usually pertains to the differential assembly and would not cause the symptom you describe. There is a problem with this transmission that causes it to not drop completely to first gear after a period of driving. Ford is aware of it but I do not believe they have initiated a recall. Call your Ford dealer(s) to see if you can find an honest man. Ask for the service manager.

0.transmission takes a minute or 2 before reversr gear engages


The anti-drain-back valve in your torque converter has gone bad. The torque converter drains into the tranny when you shut down, and you have to wait until the pump refills it before it can work.

The pump does NOT fill the converter in park, only in one of the gear positions, or neutral. Start it up in NEUTRAL, wait a minute, and drive off.
