ok then 2004 pt cruiser gt 5 speed started getting hard to down shift even when double clutching and is now having serious trouble shifting up while rpms are high. i changed the fluid and shift cable bushings with bugger bushings. and see no serious leaks. a few class 1 leaks from what i believe to be trans oil cooler lines. peddle feels normal. and from what i can tell there are no bends in the shift linkage. i did notice that even b4 the shift trouble it whines in 3rd and and just b4 the shifting problem while taking off from a stop i need to give it more gas to keep the car from stalling or shaking. any guess at the issue b4 i go and spend $150 on a transmission shop to tell me they "think" this and that "may" be the problem but we wont know until we can work on it.
