Clutch question

quick question for you guys.

I just had my clutch rebuilt.

I picked up the truck after hours so i didnt have a chance to talk to mechanic yet.
I will go back tomorrow and talk to him just trying to have some info so i know what im talking about.


before rebuild all gears shifted perfectly.

only reason i did rebuild was because i was hearing the throwout bearing make noise and i was losing clutch fluid into transmission.

so i picked up truck today and

#1
the gear shifter doesn't return to center if you arent in gear.....there is like 2 halfs a left side and a right side if that makes sense. and you can push it to the left side or the right side without selecting a gear. also a pain while shifting to push it from side to side.

#2
its basically impossible to find 3rd gear.......sitting still i can find it sometimes but while driving almost impossible.


what causes these sort of issues? are they just adjustments or something bigger?


i have a newer durotorq engine with 6 speed mt82 transmission....

thanks!

It sounds like the shifter needs adjusted. It takes about 10 mins to do it on a Defender. Not sure on your hybrid design.

Sounds like the bias springs are messed up. Its an easy fix. look at the videos for slick shifts.
