5-Speed Level 2 guys...help me with my shift ****!
On warm days, after I have driven somewhere, parked, then come out a little while later and begin to drive, there is a rattling noise that comes from my shift ****/shifter. It never does it when starting cold and driving somewhere. Only after it's warm, and been parked for a short time on a warm/hot day.
I have already tried tightening it, moving it higher and lower on the threads, and I recently put some plumbing tape around the threads and screwed it back on. The plumbing tape helped a little bit, but the noise is still noticible if I listen for it.
I had Ford look at it a month or two ago, and after argueing back and forth about it actually being a stock shifter, all they did was tighten it so tight (still rattled), I had a hard time getting it off again.
Any ideas? I'm at a loss for ideas right now...
PS. I'm hoping against this, but there is a possibility that maybe there is a rattling somewhere in my tranny that is just being amplified and/or carried up through the shifter...but let's hope not.
