RE: hard shifting
As stated in the announcement, “Please read before posting. It will help.” We need more information. Engine size? Manual or Automatic?

RE: hard shifting
OK, I am going to guess that you mean that it is difficult to move the shifter through gears. I will also assume that you haven't checked anything yet. The first thing to check is the fluid level. If the fluid is low you risk loosing the whole transaxle. Another very common thing is the cables that go from the shift lever to the top of the transaxle start to stick. If I am remembering correctly, the battery sits right above the shift assembly. Over time, battery acid drips down on the shifter parts and makes a mess of things. If caught quick enough you may be able to pull the battery out, wash things off good with a hose, and lube it back up.If none of that seems to be the problem it could be internal.

I hope that helps. If you need more help you will need to provide a better description of the problem. "Hard shifting gears" covers a lot of different problems.

Please let us know what you find.
Thanks, Garner
