97' TSI shift issue


Ok so here it goes, I swapped a manual trans in my talon now it will go in reverse and second but pops out of reverse after a few feet and will rarely go in second, I'm thinking its my linkages because in the neutral position it sits pretty close to my dash sound right?

Check your linkage, remove your center in your car see if everything is hooked up properly and everything. Have a friend get in the front and wiggle the shifter and put it in gear with the car off and see what happens up front.

If all appears to be working right and the gears engage properly, the problem might lie in your trans. Does second engage smoothly when driving? Is there any specific thing that will make either gear pop out?

Sounds like a internal problem, with bad gears.

Thanks for all the feed back first off!
I'm about 97-98% positive theres nothing internal going on it goes in 2nd and reverse "stand still" smooth but once I'm moving and try to put it in 2nd it will engage then pop out sometimes pop out and make a grinding noise afterwards it acts like its not going fully into gear at times.. Do 2G's have trans detents? The part that holds a trans in gear?
