Question Gear Stick sometimes stiff.

My Gears sometimes become difficult to change, particularly changing out of fourth. It seems to happen when I've been tonking it on the Motorway etc.

I have noticed that one of the filler bottlesin the engine bay is below minimum but can't tell if it is for the Gears as the picture on the cap is non-descript. It isn't for the stearing. Will filling this tank with the appropriate oil fix the problem, please help if u can, TA!

Re: Gear Stick sometimes stiff.

For anyone who is interested a stiff gear shift (which doesn't crunch) could be a sign of the clutch slave cylinder intermittently not working fully - normally happens when it gets hot and everything is ok a few minutes later. This is a known weak part. If you change gear when this happens you will wear out your clutch very quickly.
