More than likely the synchronizers are going out,they allow you to move from gear to gear without damaging transmission.

    this problem is not easy to fix, you would either have to find a service manual for repair or a mechanic,or opt to find used tranny in good shape

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.

My '03 VW Jetta GLS 1.8T Manual Trans grinds when shifting into second gear?


the synchros are not DIY, when they start to go it will grind when the RPMs are higher like getting on a highway, you can try double clutching and see if that helps.

Grinding sound


What is happening to you is worn out sincronizers in you transmission. They are used to mesh the gears between shifts. They are made of brass and wear out easily on the 2nd gen cars. It grinds normally going into 2nd gear and into 3rd if its really worn. If you want a stronger transmission buy the 93 and up 3rd gen tranny. It is an upgraded transmission with dual sincros. Yours does need rebuilt. Or you can find one on the MR2 board for a good price used. I prchased a 93 trans for $1000. An older one will be about 200. Also it depends if its turbo, lsd or not. Good luck!

You are going to need a transmission shop. Mazdas do not always throw codes. You have an early OBD transmission, which do not send out many codes.

Trouble shifting gears. Gears grinding while shifting from 1st to 2nd. Also cannot down shift from 2nd to 1st unless going less than 10 mph


YOU NEED TO TAKE YOUR TRANS OUT AND HAVE IT REBUILT, THE SYNCHROS ARE WORN OUT!!
THAT IS WHY YOU HAVE TROUBLE SHIFTING GEARS!!

2000 mazda bogging in all gears especially in 1st and 2nd gears ?


Judging from what i know, the timing on the engine is probably a bit off, and i remember reading the exact same problem on another web site and that is also what they said. So just check the timing on the engine or have it checked by a mechanic if you don't know how to do it.
