OUCH man!

How did u get it into P while the car's moving anyway? Did u JAM it into park? :roll:


Anyway, there is a chance that u damaged the "PARK" gear. What I'd suggest is to shift thru all gears from P and see if u feel a harsh kick or abnormal vibrations. Also, shift it into P from each gear and see if its anymore difficult to do so than b4 the mishap.

My only other exp.w/parking gear failure was the tranny eventually could NOT get into or out of the PARK gear. GL


Also, make it a habit to use the E-brake when parking in addition to the P from now on, if ur not yet doing so, to save the P gear from extra stress.

Yeah I did this accidentally also before. I was goin about 5-10 and I hit the brakes to slow down, and for some reason I put it in park before it could stop! I just a few clicking sounds, and it drove a little weird for about 10 seconds, but then it seemed normal. Hopefully I didn't f*** anything up either! :-?

im help responsible for this too........i put the car in park before i came to a complete stop although never goin 5-10mph...........its kinda scary that the car just comes to such a quick stop although i think the car can handle it........if the car seems fine and you dont do this everyday then most likely it is fine :D

Someone (a passenger) actually did it on accident while i was braking and going about 5mph into a parking spot. No biggie though. I'm sure lots of people have done it.

E-Shift blows hard imo. I mean if you have to do heavy city driving and stuff by all means e shift is probobly better idea, but 5 speed is ALOT sportier and I get better mileage with it :).

Yes, I'll go ride around on my horse while roping cattle IN MY COMPLETELY URBANIZED AREA you dumbfuck. If you want to talk shit, you could at least know of what or where you are talking about. And considering I live in the most prestigious community within 50 miles, possibly more, of the Dallas/Fort Worth area, I guess that makes everyone in Texas a hick no matter what their educational or financial status may be. By your logic, people such as George Bush, Mark Cuban, and Pat Summerall (who lives less than a mile away) are all useless ********. Good call buddy.

I got a e-shift because my car is a 2001. I like both trans and would like the 5 speed also. You know we don't have money to throw around so trading the car in for new one can be hard for some people.

I want to keep my car and get a manual but on a s2000 or a Mitau evo or a STI

Being in LA traffic where it takes me 45 minutes to drive the 8 miles to and from work...eShift makes a lot more sense. I REALLY wanted the 5 speed, but decided against it for this very reason. I got the 5-speed spoiler tho! :lol:

Yeah, I agree with Bush being useless. I used to be a big supporter, but since there are no WMD's in Iraq, I believe that he bullshitted the entire country, not to mention the other pressing issues at hand.

You should use the brake more often then. Don't know why people drive automatics like a 5 spd....
ya that's what i was trying to say. Some people want 5 speeds so badly that they drive autos like sticks lol :chill:
