first, make sure your cable is 110% spot on, if you are a hair off, third will slip or eventually not engage. i had to remove the cable from the trans, (first put the car in 3rd) and make sure the lever is all the way back, then adjust the cable length to match it perfectly to where it was at. C4's a VERY touchy about this. If that is good and still having the flare at 3rd, adjust your int. band (on drover side IIRC), loosen the jam nut and trq stud to 10ft/lbs and back off 2 full rotations and tighten back down the jam nut, that should be one of your issues

The fluid smells burnt but doesn't look burnt. I'm rinning Dex/ Merc.
I'll double check the other stuff.
Thanks

slips in low, 2nd, and hi = smoked forward clutch. I assume it doesn't slip in reverse?

WTT my '92 GT for a nice clean '91-'93 2.3/T5 hatch or coupe.

no slipping in reverse. I pulled it out today and took it to a performance tranny shop.

Damn that sucks. I hope its something simple that can be fixed inexpensively. I have a Redneck C4 with reverse VB sitting on the floor next to the car waiting to be installed. I sure hope mines not a pos too.

Well I hope you have better luck with it than me.
I was more pissed about having to take it back out and then putting it back in when it's fixed. Not too much fun doing them on your back.lol

Just went through my redneck c4 after 4-5 years of abuse replaced the frictions and steels new gaskets works great/make sure they replace the shifter lever seal sometimes gets overlooked. Also I know redneck puts a small freeze plug in place of the downshift rod make sure this is in there good I had mine come out and end up laying on the valvebody.
