I dont think that the motor mounts would affect it. Mine would grind when it is cold. I would change the trans fluid and see if that stops the grinding. If that does not then it could be the clutch that is slipping. Sometimes clutches slip when the rear main seal starts to leak.

I've said it many times before..I have had two Fox body GT's, and talked to others with them also. Grinding in 2nd is a VERY common thing with the T5's. 2nd and 4th are both weak gears, and 3rd can be considerd weak also.

I think the problems come from shifting hard and not getting it all the way in gear just think about what happens when when you make that hard shift slamming it in at high rpms we all do it and if your gears dont meet and sync. like there supposed to they eat the teeth off the gears! Eventually you will lose 2nd gear if its to late for the fluid change and synthetic would help alot for your problems but dont waste putting it in if you see metal in the fluid you drain out! Good Luck

I got the same problem. Every other gear shifts fine and if i take it really easy 2nd will work. But if i shift with a little power it grinds or it will do it when i down shift sometimes. I've been told it was prob the syncros

Yup. Like I said. Common problem with the t5's 2nd gear syncro. Try a good flush, and replace with some Synthetic. May, may not help. Worth a try tho.

I don't think synthetic fluid is supposed to be good for the T-5. I would replace with the recommended fluid which I believe is Mercon 3.
