I have a 99 contour w/ 2.5 V6 5 speed manual transmission w/84000 miles on it. About 3000 miles ago the clutch was replaced and I now notice the following problem. When I first start it up on a cold morning below 40 and I let the clutch out the rpms drop about 300 to 400. Push it back it and it goes back up. When the car is warmed it doesn't do that. Also when I first drive it, it shifts into first gear easy but second is hard. All other gears are fine and after I drive a mile or so it shifts into second gear easy. I am going on a 700 trip soon for the holidays and I am wondering if I should drive it. Thanks
have the same problem?
