I've fallen out of the car scene for awhile but I've stayed somewhat interested. I bought a 1989 Ford Mustang GT when I was 14 and I've worked on it for 4 years now. ( I didn't get any financial help from my parents so it took me awhile to gather funds for the project) I've had no experience driving and now finally the car is road worthy I've tried but I've done terrible driving with the 5 speed standard. It is a bit daunting learning to drive in a foxbody, any advice on how to overcome the jitters? or any tips on driving a foxbody spefically?
I have an 05 Civic EX with a standard transmission. My problem is that in 4th gear I notice that my shifter will jerk forward then back when I decelerate. I don't think this should be happening, but I may be wrong. I also notice when accelerating from a complete stop in 1st gear (obviously) it kinda sounds like a light grinding noise, but then goes away right be for I readjust the shifter. I got this car last year and I think this car had been sitting for a while but the previous owner did not say. So the grinding noise I hear could be because the disk breaks need to be changed or some rust somewhere else. If you can give me any help that will be appreciated. I am still rather new to this.
