Transmission noise sometimes?

Hello all,

I am getting a grind shifting from 1st to 2nd when I have rpms above 2k. Only starting off not down shifting. No noise if I limp the car to start off (low rpms). The car has 130000 on it no mods. I also noticed a slight whine in 1st when down shifting. Signs of a rebuild? Thoughts?

Thanks,
Gssmriley

Check the clutch cable adjustment and see if it is where it should be, if not adjust as needed. If the clutch engagement is at the proper point and working well it sounds like a synchro issue, might be worth it to try a fluid change after adjusting the clutch.

Plus 1 on the fluid change. Use a good full synthetic of the proper viscosity rating. Don't expect the issue to go away overnight though, sometimes it takes a while.

Agreed, the root cause is probably synchro related. Mine does the same at 2-3, if I shift above 3k or so, and everything seems to indicate it's synchro related.

Just replaced the fluid, it was horrible! Probably never changed in 130,000. Going to run it then go from there...

Ditto sounds like synchro issues.
