Grinding gearbox iv got a 1995 ford probe 2.5 v6 manual. a few days ago i started to notice a grinding and whining noise coming from the gearbox when in 1st, 2nd and reverse. i have no problem selecting a gear and the clutch feels fine, but when pulling away there is also a lack of power or a restriction of some sort which also makes the exhaust sound weird. can anyone help or suggest anything please?

    Awesome!!! That changes everything!!!

    Okay, well, the best thing to do is to take it to an automotive repair shop there. Ask them to either test drive it or have them do an inspection (whatever is free) and ask them for an estimate. This at least gives you an idea of what the problem is.

Low transmission fluid. Manual gearboxes normally use gear oil, automatics use transmisison fluid. Sill could be a bearing, just not a wheel bearing. Just curious, how can you tell its not a wheel bearing?

1995 Ford Ranger whines. Three mech's, fuel pump, carrier bearings, wheel bearings. Who is closest?

You need to post the symptoms of your problem. And let us tell you what we think. But for what its worth here I go. Electric fuel pumps howl or moan. Carrier bearings on make noise when vehicle is moving down the road and make a squalling noise when the bearing is going bad but may be interpreted as a whine. Wheel bearings near the same as carrier bearings but they usually grind. So my guess is alternator or pulley bearing since they whine.

1st, 3rd and 5th Gears all pop out of place + Whining noise

hi my name is nathan what it sounds like is #1 (I have to hold it in place til I get to second gear) that can be that your shift linkage is worn or out of adjustment,pilot bushing is Badly worn,shift fork,lever and or shaft is bent or worn,or your bell housing is misaligned or just loose...i have a few more ideas on why it is jumping out but those are the main ones now about your whining gear noise#2( The whining sound starts low pitched in each gear then gets higher pitched as the rev's increase) you may have worn gears maybe or it could be just that your transmission lubricant is incorrect or inadequate.

Grinding noise in the left front wheel while turning right - gets more noticeable the harder the turn is. Checked tire clearance - no problem, but it's not a rubbing noise but a grinding noise. No problem...

grinding on front wheel is caused by 2 things. a bad or loose wheel bearing,or worn out brakes, have them both checked
You might also want to check the level of fluid in the power steering reservoir - low or lack of fluid will also cause a noise (although more of a whining than a grinding).
