OK, so the 4bt swap is on hold right now, but I have this problem with the 98 explorer 5 speed shifting. Hope someone here can point me in the right direction. It has 167K on it. I have a real problem getting it to go in gear sometimes, especially when its cold (cool - Texas mornings in july aren't that cold). Anyway, even when its hot, when I come to a stop, if I keep the clutch pedal engaged, I can shift to any gear with ease. But, if I let up on the clutch ( in neutral), then engage the clutch pedal again, its almost impossible (most times) to get it to go into any gear. If I pop the clutch to re-spin the gears, no help. Its like the all the gears are sitting there tooth-to-tooth, and nothing but the tooth. Thanks.
