Hi, I just bought a used 1991 mustang GT last week, and it was driving fine. However, I decided to give it a launch, and every time I'm in first gear, and try to shift quickly to second, it grinds and pops out. If I granny shift it, it works fine. Please help.

Thanks,
Brian

Hi, thanks for the speedy response. How much do you think it would cost for a 2nd gear only rebuild?

Thanks,
Brian

Thanks, sorry for getting back so late. I'm not sure why, but the grinding went away, and I have not heard it for this whole week. Any explanations?

Thanks

Sometimes the transmission will only grind when the car is driven for the first few miles. After everything is up to operating temprature, the problem can sometimes go away. This is the case with my 3rd gear. This still indicates worn parts that will need to be replaced.
