It sounds like an internal transmission problem The syncronizer that slows down or speeds up the gear to make a smooth engagement has wore down. There is no easy fix. The transmission has to come out of the vehicle and be repaired or replaced with a good used or rebuilt one.

1999 escort manuel tranny wont shift into third gear all others are fine


sounds like the synchro went bad for 3rd gear. if all other gears work fine, i would suspect the synchros inside the transmission are starting to fail.

When shifting into 3rd gear on my 1999 SL it grinds going in but stays in gear it does not pop out. Is this common and how costly to fix?


Not common. Being that it only happens in third, it is possible that the clutch is funtioning normally but your syncronizers might be shot. Or close to shot. Try double clutching to relieve some of the grinding. That means to shft from 2nd or 4th to neutral, let out the clutch then push the clutch again and shift to third. That was how old transmissions had to be shifted before we had syncronized transmissions. Not a very fast way to move. Or you might be able to skip 3rd whenever possible. I'm not sure abou tthe price of the tranny repair.

Transmission going bad?


popping out of gear means your shifting forks need adjustment, same as the grinding. the tranny is probably good, just the top part, the shifting mechanism needs to be repaired, so it would be cheaper to repair than rebuilding the whole transmision.still, im guessing about 300-500$ depending where you live.

2001 saturn sc1 grinds when going into third gear


sounds like you got a bad shift syncro for 3rd gear, its inside the trans,cuse ive never adjust shift cables on a s-series now matter what was done to the trans,and that cable controls more than just 3rd gear so its gotta be the syncro,,sorry,,,cheaper to get a used trans than to fix

When i shift into third the gears grind.. why?


sounds like the syncromesh has gone in the gearbox. If you dont want them to grind, you,ll have to double declutch. I f you cant do this, get a new gearbox.

My third gear grinds when i shift to third it doesnt grind when i double clutch up all the time but it grinds on the down shift double clutch or not how can i solve this?


Has the transmission been serviced? A transmission oil change and lubricant additive may help, however, it sounds as though you have a 3rd gear synchronizer going bad. Verify the shift linkage is not worn and is secure at the shifter and transmission be for spending any cash. If the linkage is good and the fluid change does not help after 150 miles, you might want to visit your favorite transmission shop.
Good luck and let me know.

Down shifting


if you are going to fast and down shift of course its a grind maybe your suppose to be on 4th gear not third gear so that means you need to shift to 3rd.
