I have a 1988 Ford Mustang hatchback 4 cyl. How can i fix a hard shifting transmission in my 88 mustang which has a stiff clutch also it tends to not go into first gear easy if at all other gears are difficult but it can be done. I have done nothing yet i don't want to mess anything up i can still drive it, but its real real hard to shift gears, and the clutch is stiff.
The symptoms you are having is a sure tell sign of a clutch needing replaced. Replace the clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing and this will cure the problem.
