Ok, have noticed for a few weeks now that my Maverick's gearchange has been getting slightly "stiffer", esp when it's just been started :confused:

The clutch pedal seems fine, it's just the physical movement of the gearlever that seems to be getting harder.

Now I know that the 3.0 Auto Escapes of this era had, lets say a few problems in the gearchange dept, does the same apply to my version, the 2.0 Manual.

Any ideas or suggestions gratefully received..........

From what I've read over the years Cam, the manual tranny has had very few problems... especially compared to the v6 auto. Could it have anything to do with the cold weather? I know my old Honda's manual would be stiff in the winter until it warmed up. When was the last time you changed out the transmission oil?
