Mine has been kinda hard to shift since I got it last year with 86K on it. Put
in Mobil 1 tranny fluid, it was better, but still kinda notchy. Reverse is
especially hard to get into sometimes.

Did you replace the mounts yourself or have somebody else do it? I take it that
there are two mounts. So you think that my shifting will become smoother if I
replace these? Or how do I inspect, how did you know to replace them?
