Question about Mazda Protege
Vibration in third gear, mainly while under load as when climbing a hill. Most noticed around 35 MPH.
If it is only a 5th gear problem then it is at the rear end of the box and can be associated with a failed rear bearing on the cluster shaft or a chipped tooth on one of the 2 gears involved. This is a larger gear driving a smaller gear and is subject to extra load . This problem was fairly common in the easi-loader vans when the capacity of the van was exceeded (overloaded) and driven considerable distances. The gears them selves in most cases were wearing out. Check the drain plug magnet for metal bits.
