Could be, I'm not sure though. What engine, that changes which transmission. If it's a 2.5 I'll go look at mine. I had a problem like that once while I was driving..got home with revmatching to shift, turned it off, pumped the clutch, and it was fine ever after that. Never found out what it was. If it's not that hose and you find out...do tell. Could the linkage just not be hooked up?
