If it is happening in all gears, the problem is probably related to the disengagement of of the transmission during shifting. This can happen from a hydraulic master or slave cylinder (if a hydraulic system) being warn and not moving the clutch plates apart, warn clutch plates, a sticky throwout bearing or simply fluid level being so low the system has developed air bubbles.
If it is happening only in a single gear or two, the synchronizers for those gears are warn and the transmission will have to come out and require rebuilding.

I have a 1997 oldsmobile bravada and i have a grindig in the front end could someone help me figure out what it is and if it is worth fixing?


Most common cause of grinding is worn brake pads. When they wear, you get a metal to metal situation and usually damage the rotors. As far as if it's worth fixing? That's a personal call but replacing brake pads and rotors is usually a $250-400 job depending on the service station. I'd say if you don't have a lot of money invested in the car, you'd be hard pressed to find a good running car for that price. If you've got other things wrong or potential issues (transmission slipping, overheating, engine running rough) then you may want to look for a new vehicle.

I have a 88 Ford Bronco2.9Liter 4wheel drive Mitsubishitransmission. I need a diagram of tranny for the gears.


It's very simple starting at the front of the tranny going to the rear if it's a 4 speed
all of the gears except the input shaft (4th gear ) will be assembled on the main shaft ,,,
from small to large on the main shaft
the input shaft is the 4th gear , next is 3rd gear , next is 2nd gear, and then 1st gear is the largest

now the counter shaft in the bottom of the case ,,, it 's gear labeling will be backwards from large to small
like this

the front of the countershaft is large and mates with the small gear(4th)
the next gear is 3rd, then 2nd, then 1st,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, the gear thats mounted off the side in the case is the reverse idler

If its a 5 speed

the gears places above are the same and 5th gear is added to the rear of the main shaft (,the smallest gear,)

the gears on the countershaft are the same and 5th gear is the last gear on the countershaft( the largest gear on the counter shaft ) the single gear mounted off the side in the case is the reverse idler

hope this helps

Sounds like there could be gear damage in 5th gear. Isn't 5th gear a straight through arrangement? G. Nye


All the gears inside the transmission are driven off a main gear called a cluster gear. Though the gear ratio changes as you select different gears, each "gear" you select engages several gears inside the unit to achieve the one you selected. Actually if it was possible to have a straight through arrangement, that would happen in fourth gear. Fifth is overdrive... the input actually turns slower than the output so the engine turns slower and saves fuel.
