HELP - Strange shifting
Hey guys,

Posting from way over in New Zealand (hi hi), I have a Japanese spec Version 8 STI (with the 6 speed DCCD)

I have a really strange issue with my box that i just cant quite nut out.

After a bit of a hard launch it feels like the hole linkage or gearbox moves. Then it feels as if the whole bottom row has shifted sideways, for example to select 2nd the motion would be like a backwards J, as in the selecter curves to select the gear or it only just touched the top. After about 30 or so mins mix driving after it seems to move back into the correct place, I cant seem to make it bundge when its in gear by forcing the stick sideways etc.

Any ideas anyone?
Thanks heaps in advance

have you checked the linkage and or the mounts ?

We thought it might have been the engine mounts as one was cracked and we replaced that.

it still does it just not as bad. its at the exhuast shop at the moment getting a crack fixed (due to the engine mount going) ive got him checking while hes under all the linkges and bushes/mounts
