SOURCE: tranny slips & wont shift past 2nd gear

tranny slips can also mean that you may need to change the tranny filter. But just like cooking oil at first it is thick then you add heat and it gets thinner, same for tranny oil which could also mean that your tranny needs gear and plate work. The easiest way to find out is to insert the oil dip stick, clean it with a paper towel and check to see if you can see metal shivers or if the color of the tranny oil is not red but silverish, these are usually indictative of a tranny that needs an overhaul. hope this helps.

Good Luck =)

SOURCE: I own 1994 Acura Integra with a 5 speed manual

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.

SOURCE: 2004 acura rsx type s grinds shifting into 5th

Check the oil level in the transmission. More than likely you will need the 5th gear syncro and gear replaced at a minimum.

I down shifted into 2nd gear while slowing down on a bumpy hill and my gear grinded hard. Now my 1988 Isuzu 4x4 pickup won't go into 2nd gear. All other gears are OK.


check shifter linkage --then either damaged gear,syncro,or shaft for the latter will need to open the unit --change fluid and look for fillings or metal

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.

I'm hearing a grinding noise when shifting gears in my 97 nissan pathfinder. It's not a full blown grind but just a slight grinding noise. It does it in reverse 1st 2nd 3rd and just started doin it in 4th....


check and/or change the transmission oil. Clutch problems are noticeable in 1st and reverse but as all the rest are syncro controlled you really do not need to use the clutch to change them. just get the engine rpms to match road speed and they will slip in. I am thinking a oil viscosity problem because of the colder weather.

Manual Transmission loud metal noise 5th gear doesn't work


check the drain plug magnet for metal bits . If any the box has to come out 4.th gear is straight shaft connection and 5 gear connects from the cluster shaft up to the out put shaft . On either side is a rear main bearing and from your description if that bearing is failed then the 4th gear syncro will not align properly and the gear for 5th will be out of alignment so the syncro to work will not work

2nd gear slips going in and out of 2nd


If 2nd gear slips a lot, the clutch for that gear is probably worn out. A rebuild of the transmission is recommended.

Bad syncro for third gear. Sorry, but you aren't fixing this one yourself, unless you replace the transmission yourself.

On my 1976 Triumph TR6 when shifting I get a little grinding as it goes into gear 2nd,3rd mainly. I just rebuilt the gearbox and installed a new clutch about 700 miles ago. When its cold 2nd gear is worst,...


Sounds like a sychro problem when you rebuilt. I have always found with my gearbox, even when warm it is easy to beat the sychros so i make slower changes. Unless you fix the sychro rings the problem will only get worse
