Question about 2005 Acura TL

6 speed manual transmission

Got this car 6 months ago with 85k on it, excellent condition. Noticing the manual shift from 2nd to 3rd gear grinds on high RPM and also sometimes i have to push it harder to get in gear. Also manual transmission feels clunky, but gets very smooth after driving for an hour. Any suggestions?

Well you bought a second hand car we never know what the old owner did to this car maybe he redlined into vetch a lot or he never changed the transmission oil or it could be the clutch.. But my first guess would be to change the transmission oil acura requires there transmission oil to be changed every 70k miles but please make sure to do it with a professional reputable mechanic. I hope this helps

SOURCE: Gear shifting problem

The 1st thing to do is have a test run on the transmission control module to see if any trouble codes are present, next have you ever serviced the transmission, fluid and filter change, should be done at 60,000 miles, on occasion this can cure problems like yours.

If the whine is there than the main bearing is already worn adding fluid will not save it, you will have to swap it or rebuild it. sorry i know you were hoping for something better.

What does the shift solenoid look like and where does it connect,how is it to fix myself


The solenoid is inside the transmission. On this kind of issue, I recommend changing the transmission fluid and maybe adding some conditioner to the fluid. If that doesn't work, a transmission specialist will have to open the transmission to repair.

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!

2003 Toyota Celica GTs 6-speed transmission problem


Grinding going into third gear only may indicate a worn syncronizer ring. There are no adjustments on the shift cables, so I doubt highly that changing the cables will help you, since you are talking about 3rd gear only. Please note: This issue may be still under warranty, if your vehicle has less than 60,000 miles and is not 5 years old. Replacement of 6-speed internal parts is best left to a pro.
