  • Slight grind shifting into 3rd

    Anyone know what the problem is when you shift into third gear and you get a slight grind going into gear but fine once in gear?

        I had a slight grind in my third years ago. Gear oil drained and fresh in. Ran for about 400 miles or so then drained and changed the oil again and issue is gone. Maybe i was just lucky, or just some contaminants.

                Possibly syncro in 3rd is gone. Time to double clutch till you want to yank the trans.
