grinding gears

  1. 2011-2014 Mustang Talk
    Hello all, I've been having this issue for a while, but haven't really done much about it since it only happens a few times a week. What will happen is I will shift into fifth gear, and it will make a grinding noise and I feel a sharp vibration through the shift knob. I always make sure the...

    i finally got my clutch replaced. I go to take her for a drive and as i go to slide it into 3rd gear it grinds and finally pops in with a little force; the same goes for fourth. Every other gear shifts smoothly which leads me to believe that it must be the synchronizer for third and fourth gear...

    Hello everyone, So I just sold my 97 GT, and the very next day I bought by dream car, a black on black '03 Mach 1 with only 37,000 miles. Gold mine, one in a million find. Anyway I was lookin' for advice from others with the 32 valve 4.6L. What kind of problems can I expect, if any? Any...

    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.

    I have a 2000 Mustang GT w/ manual tranny. When I shift into reverse, sometimes the shifter won't go completely into the reverse gear and it grinds really bad when I try to back up. Other times it goes into gear perfectly. Ive also read that if you go into 1st gear then directly into reverse it...

    Hi everybody, This is my second posting with AFM. Last time really helped, so I'm hoping you all can get this one too. I have a 1996 Mustang Gt. Manual Transmission. The transmission is stock. I was driving along and put my car into gear and as soon as I started moving the car popped out of...

    Hello All Ford Mustang Forums. Background Info: I just bought a used manual 08 GT CS with 2700 miles on it. I know you guys will probably cringe on this one, but I learned how to drive stick on this car. I have to admit, it was a little ugly learning how to drive on my dream car - but I never...

Once i turned the car off and tried to put in any gear, the car grinds! i am unable to put in any gear while the car is running. If i...
