I recently purchased a 1999 Esprit and have a quick question about the transmission/shift linkage. I noticed when I step on the gas or let off the shift lever moves forward and back a bit. Is this normal? I haven’t experienced this in any other car before and hope it’s not a sign of something bad happening.

Any thoughts would be appreciated...

Check your motor mounts and then check your transmission mounts, pay particular attention to the two aluminum mount brackets that attach to the gearbox, they are known to crack

Thanks, I’ll have a look at them tomorrow. I was afraid I have a transmission problem!
