Is there any signs that anyone maybe aware of that a manual trans may be failing. Ive only owned auto's so is there any difference as far as the tell tell signs. I'm experincing problems intermitent problems shifting into second. First seems to rev out way to fast and reverse grinds sometimes when you first shift into reverse but no effects after it goes into gear. Also getting a whinning sound when downshifting to first. The guy I bought it from put a new clutch and cable but did say that the cable may need adjusting of course I don't know how to do that. Any help? Thanks.

If the T-5 is grinding, its either syncros which can only be fixed by taking apart the tranny or low on trans fluid. 2nd and 3rd gear syncros are notorious for going out in T-5's​
