first of all, hi all! just registered with the site,
ive got a 2001 mk 4 1.6 8v (z16se) and recently the gearchange has felt crap compared to what it used to. it goes into gear and when its in performance is fine, just doesnt feel that good at times, abit rough and clunky and not so smooth, other times its totally fine. so far ive changed the gearbox oil, put mollyslip gearbox treatment in and i even got a "powerflex" insert for the front engine/gearbox mounting which was designed to make gearchange silky smooth on the mk 4. needless to say i took it out as it caused alot of vibration and done nothing for the gearchange. i dont know if its anything serious or not, just want it to feel as good as it used to. only other thing is i was in the engine bay the other day and i reached down the back of the engine and gave the gear linkage a good shake! got in the car and the gearchange actually felt great. it didnt last though. any thoughts?
