I can't see why unscrewing the shift knob would do anything. The knob itself isn't connected to anything of importance.

My car has definitely began to shift better with age. You might just need to break it in a little bit. I've also heard that changing out your transmission fluid can really smooth out your shifts.

Check out this thread. Lots of good info here (
