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.
