Christ,its a true saying ,you only get what you pay for.Since buying off ebay (£501) only a couple of months ago the van has cost me at least £1000 more to keep it on the road which brings me to my post title and the latest problem.
3rd gear is a pisser to engage and at other times when it is in it occasionally jumps out.What causes this and whats the repair.
cheers and thanks from a member rapidly going off Fords

Check all your gear linkages and gearbox mounts, as if one of these is worn it will make it hard to get in gears.

Also i think there is a plastic collar on the gear stick somewhere that wears too
