Damnit... car won't go into gear.

Was sitting in the car this afternoon for about 20 minutes idling on the phone. Nothing seemed to be wrong.

Got in the car after work and the damn thing is fighting me to get into gear. After I got moving, the car felt fine. Every red light it was the same thing. Went to the gym, got out, same deal. No bueno.

Car off: shifts through gears fine
Car on: doesn't like 1,2,R...

Clutch appears to be fine. Called for a tow the next morning because it was doing the same thing. Tow truck gets there, and the trans is fine. It's actually been just fine ever since this incident.

Anywho, I got my second and third tint ticket within two weeks of each other. The latest one is a mandatory court appearance. I couldn't think of a better way to spend my Tuesday evening. So I just bit the bullet and removed the front windows myself...



On the brightside, I do feel better at night because of the increase visibility. On the downside, less privacy and lots of sunlight gets in that I'd rather not have. Oh well, as long as the 5-0 gets off me, I'll be a happy camper.

Doing the fronts wasn't terrible, just time consuming.

Are you still running stock clutch? My southbend despises this cold weather and gives me a lot of trouble going into first, second and reverse. Once it warms up it's fine by cold mornings are rough, even though my car is garaged.

I have a gift certificate for Unitronic software.... which means I can pretty much switch tunes for $300 (with uni-connect).

Should I make the leap? I don't have any qualms with my APR software and a new revision is coming... but this chance is going to expire in a few days.

Just saw this... I am. Which SB do you run? I'm on stock clutch.

I could alternatively use it towards hardware... but I'd just get the intake.

Yes, I do have access to one. Will try that. Love it if I could get a mic hooked up.

Starter squeal is an ongoing issue that the dealer is not helping me with.
