SOURCE: Problems with gear box

I had the same problem, have the clutch fitted, but ask the garage to look at your gear linkage too.

SOURCE: 5th gear with 1996 VW Polo

hi mandy
im dave
if it only revs when you put it in 5th gear then it is not in fifth gear. it may look like it but it is not. try moving the gear selector from fourth into neutral releasing the clutch fully then applying the clutch and initiating fifth gear. if that does not work try placing it into one of the other gears first without releasing the clutch and then selecting fifth.
you should be fine driving in four gears as long as you dont travel on the audobahn or at speeds like your on the audobahn. Just watch your redline. try not to go past it. i think it is actually better for your car to drive at higher revolutions than lower as it cleans out your combustion chamber of carbon. on the other hand it is ******* your engine to drive in the red line constantly.
but 3000 rpm in 4th gear probably has you driving 130km/hr (82mph) which should be sufficient and your redline probably does not start until somewhere between 4-5k

SOURCE: making noise like gear is rubbing something in 5th

Drain the oil out of your manual tranny into a CLEAN bucket. Run your fingers through it. Does it look like you've got splotches of silver paint? If so, your tranny's bearings and/or gears may be wearing out.

Hi- You need to take your vehicle to Advance Auto. Ask for a code check. Come back and tell me the code. You may be able to fix it right there.

Fifth gear throwing out when its put in


common problem with manual transmissions that have over drive gears, instead of dropping back to lower gear for overtaking, just putting foot to floor over loads the overdrive gear, prematurely wearing it to the point where the pressure angle changes between the gear in question and its meshing counterpart, causing it to throw/jump out of gear. dont use 5th gear, if you do, be gentle, it will eventually fail, get a new transmission!

Trans noise growling metal...3rd,4th and 5th low speed


I'm not sure, but that sounds like the throw-out barings. If thats the case and they went before the clutch did, then their could be some big problems up ahead.

Problems with gear box


Hi

If the clutch feels ok and isn't biting right at the bottom or right at the top then it sounds like its time for a recon or 2nd hand gearbox to be fitted.

I recently fitted a 2nd gearbox to a seat ibiza GTi which actually has the 2.0 Golf engine fitted to it and it wasn't too bad at all, but it is adviseable to fit a clutch kit whilst the box is off.

Very best regards
