2009 Dodge Challenger RT: Sticky Shift
May 11, 2010
I noticed this weekend that the tranny in Challenger isn't as happy as it used to be. Pulling the stick between gears -- especially when driving short distances before the fluids are up to temperature -- isn't as easy as it once was. Clutch take-up isn't as smooth as I remember, either.
Remember that we've have the clutch replaced once and that this car's miles are starting to accumulate. And there's this little endeavor, which probably didn't do it any mechanical favors. We'll see if this amounts to anything.
