Grind 1st to 2nd? Ideas?

2011 GT500 with 3K miles.

When shifting hard & fast at 6K rpm I am getting a grind. Do you think this is part of the TSB? I think I am depressing the clutch pedal all the way down and I do not get it in 3rd gear. It almost feels like a pressure plate problem.

Looks like lots of Tremec owners are having the issue - ford has not issued a TSB yet.

Thank god i don't have this problem and I feel for the ones that are plagued by this.. The problem lies in the syncros and there is no TSB as of yet for it....
This thread has alot of good info in it for you, suggest you read... GL

Hey fast&crooked and tjys,

I recommend you make appointments with your Ford dealers for diagnosis. Then please message me with your contact info, VIN, mileage, and dealer so I can escalate this for you.

My 2011 GT500 does the same thing. Lots of guys on Team Shelby and SVT Performance have the same issue. Nobody knows what the real fix is and I know I really don't want my dealer tearing the tranny apart given the number that already have with no "official" fix.

I understand bpmurr, but how are we to know what is wrong with your specific vehicle if its not being worked on or diagnosed by the dealer? That should always be the first step so we can work with you and your dealer to resolve whatever the issue may be.

I have a 2005 mustang gt and did the swap to the tr 6060. And I am having the same issue. I will also occasioaly get it in 3rd but every time into second. Very frustrating! Has anyone considered an adjustable slave cylinder? Or is everyone confident it is a tranny issue?

bpmurr, Good to see you here from TMS. Sorry to hear you have the issue on the '11 after your "fun" with the '10. I too am seeing the grind issue on my '11. I just hit the 2,500 mile mark after a year and am starting to get into the pedal more... I want to take her in to be looked at, but don't want to lose the car for a month or more during the middle of driving season! I'm content to drive gentle for the one day a week I take the car out these days.



Deysha,
When I had a transmission problem on my 2006 GT back in 2007 Ford refused to help me and I had to pay for it myself. After the job, the mechanic was able to prove the issue was caused during assembly, but still nothing from Ford back then.

In regards to the issue in my 2011 Shelby, would you be able to assist me in this as well?

Ray

1st 2nd grind issue is well documented in the GT 5.0 threads as well.
I read quite a few posts on this.... I also get the 1st 2nd grind on my 6M gt, started doing it pretty much from the get go... problem seems to disappear as the car warms up, I have always allowed the car to run for at least 5/10 minutes in colder weather,but starting off to my office, it would ALWAYS grind going into 2nd gear.
Not a fun feeling with a brand new car grinding with less than 300km.
In my opinion, FORD should have addressed this issue BEFORE they started selling it,lots of disatisfied and upset owners over this,and the fact FORD has issued no official comment in this regard,NOR produced a TSB for it.
Im surprised that it's also happening on the GT500 Shelby, and you guys have a different transmission BUT having the same problem as the GT 5.0 MT6S.
Im patiently waiting for FORD to address this issue,the sooner the better.

My 2012 does it unless I pause for 1/2-1 second before going into second. Only 600 miles so far and I didn't even try until I hit 500 miles. I'm going to need to make an appointment with the dealer and report back here.
