Shift Fork Failure in the 6 Speed 3000GT VR4 / Dodge Stealth AWD

Yikes!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so we just started with a picture of what can happen when you shift a 6 Speed 3000GT VR4 or AWD Dodge Stealth like you really mean it…

That aluminum piece that is fractured on the edge is the 1st and 2nd gear shift fork. Hard shifting will break the fragile stock cast forks. If you are lucky you will “only” lose 1st and 2nd gear, and if not you may jam the trans in 2 gears at once or have large pieces of aluminum bind up your gears and cause a lot of damage.

Fortunately there is a solution…
