Default problem shifting gears

I have PT Cruiser 2002 1.6 benzine engine and I have difficulties shifting gears when car warms up (it seems to me and maybe I am wrong but it gets worse when I turn on air conditioning) Anyways I then need to press really hard on stick shift to move gear to the next position. Once the car cools down shifting becomes easier. When the engine is turned off shifting is normal.

this is what you're going to adjust (lay on the drivers side floormat and look up):


we get this problem posted here almost daily this time of year. you're the first one of the new year

loosen that nut, pull the pedal up, then tighten the nut.

post your results. it'll very likely be fixed
