Default Manual Transmission

I have a question for you guy’s. I have a 01 GT with a little over 9,000 miles on it. When I first bought it the manual transmission went out, specifically third gear. After a month, I got it back. Now a year later I am still having some problems. Typically, if you are riding the RPM’s it will lock you from going to third. Plus sometimes I get a bad burning smell. I am still under warranty, so I am going to take it back to the dealership, but I am getting tired of their run around on this thing. They keep telling me that it is some type of safety ring that keeps getting bunched up. That this is happening in many cars. What do you guys think?

Third gear always goes first on the 3650. The syncro's in these trannies suck @$$. I would take it back to ford and tell them you want a NEW transmission and not a rebuild kit. You have to go in there and push or they wont do what you want.

Actually Ford doesnt make the Tremac. They are used in Fbodies and other rides.

why not go to this site http://www.alldata.com/TSB/ and look up your car and see if Ford has issued a TSB (technical service bulletin)on it about the tranny problems. If you find one specific to your car, then you can use it as leverage with the dealer to make him do the correct repair and if he's still being a hard *** about it, call in the local Ford factory customer rep and see what he can do to make the dealer behave. It's the factory that warrants the cars, not the dealers and the dealers don't like doing warranty work as Ford pays a minimum rate for warranty work and doing a lot keeps the dealers from being able to do more non-warrantly work where they can really make some money! It's a bad situation all around, but it's also a fact that we have to deal with in the real world.
BTW, I can't take credit for this site, somebody else posted it here some time ago and I was savvy enough to save it for use later, like now!
