If you are having problems with your transmission grinding when you try and shift into third there is not fix other than having these parts replaced inside of the transmission.

Mazda 2300 grindes when shifting into 4th


4th gear is not a gear as such but a coulping of the input and out put shafts to make a complete shaft
If there is a problem moving this coupling it indicates a syncro ring problem or spigot bearing failure in the end of the input shaft
either way it amounts to a gear box removal and pull down for repairs.

Transmissin won't shift acts like it's stuck in third gear.


In some models the engineers default the tranny to be stuck in the 3rd gear if something is wrong because 3rd gear is considered an "all-purpose" gear. It will allow your car to begin to move from a dead stop, and will also allow it to maintain a highway speed without ruining your tranny or engine.

In my own personal experience, I have had a car that was stuck in 3rd gear. The problem turned out to be the electrical harnesses leading from the TCU to the tranny itself. The harness would pull itself out.

I would double, triple, and quadruple check all the electrical connections dealing with the transmission. It may be as simple as a wire that got pulled out of the harness and could be shorted out; which can cause your problem.

In any case, make sure you protect your tranny ID. Its a sweet body your driving. You don't want to be out there exposed on the superhighway going only in 3rd gear, with no other choices.

1989 Ford F-150 4.9L 300 inline 6 cylinder 5 speed stuck in 3rd Gear? any solutions


If your clutch master cylinder is good in all other gears: you can disengage and, shift the other gears with the engine not running and, you have the correct amount of clutch fluid
in your clutch master cylinder: to release the clutch:
you have a broken 5th gear syncro and, a bent fork
remove the transmission and, when you remove the shift cover you will
see the problem; you must drain the transmission case remove any metal debris; remove the gear set and, replace the syncro...the fork can probably be
re-straightened use clean, new case oil when you reassemble the transmission.

3rd gear has always crunched when drivin hard but other day lost 3rd gear altogether and then it come back and i lost 4th gear and then 4th come back and i lost 3rd again which continued the rest of the...


sounds like the syncros in your tranny are toast. they are what let your car go into gear and have little teeth on them. You know they are going bad when they start grinding. Id look in a salvage yard for a new tranny or have yours rebuild. Which can be pricey. Rate my answer man!

1972 Triumph Spitfire, 3rd gear grinding


Jumping out of third was a common problem with the Spitfire quick changing up from forth gear would beat the syncro and chip the teeth on the drive dog then the bits would stop the syncro from engaging fully and it would jump out. If you replaced the syncro and the drive hub it may just be a bit stiff, the selector also wore quite quickly and misaligned the drive hub causing it to be hard to select.
I will scratch about in my very old manuals and see if I can find the spitfire gearbox manual, If I can I will post it.
