So the transmission in my neon is basically toast. Luckily I have a spare in my garage. I was wondering if anyone was still around that could help that has done this. Just swapping it. Pulling out and throwing in. I can provide beer and pizza lol. I just need to do this asap but most likely sometime next week. Probably the weekend.

The shifter cables came lose and the booger bushings crumbled which caused it to miss the gear and grind it to hell. So now the syncros don't work. Even when I push in the clutch it stays in gear a bit. And shifting is a bitch. And when I'm going down hill and push in the clutch like i said it stays in gear slightly but it starts vibrating. Even while driving it vibrates like something in the tranny is unbalanced now. And on highway once I'm in 5th I'm stuck there cause it won't downshift(syncros?) Occasionally it will even pop out of gear if I'm not holding the shifter. But yeah, not pleased with booger bushings they crumbled. The cables came lose and the floorpan and at the transmission. Oh and all this also caused the bottom bushing mount of the shifter to twist. Now I have to put it in a vice and hope I can reposition it back. And for some weird reason all this caused my starter to crap out for a couple days.

Btw its a manual tranny on an 98 ACR.

Nope. Waiting for warmer weather and some help. Either that or I'm just going to take it somewhere which I'd rather not do. But now I need to go to picknpull cause my head has started ticking.
