Sounds like the clutch is not fully disenguaging,clutch probably needs to be replaced and it should clear up all concerns.

When tranny starts jumping out of gear this is usually internal problem (except where the linkage is misadjusted or bent.)

I'm looking at purchasing a 96 chevy c10. It has the 5.7L vortec with manual 5spd transmission. While test driving the transmission grinds in 2nd gear everytime you shift gears. All other gears shift...


The synchronizers are bad. Costs about $200. But I check and replace bearings. Also check gears. About a $1500 job. You pull the transmission. I pull, $2500. I replace the master and slave also.

Gears are hard to get into or they grind


Hello Hannah, I don't believe just yet that your problem is inside your transmission. I would first check the adjustment and condition of your clutch. If it were an internal transmission problem it would probably be with one gear ,not all of them. You aren't grinding fourth gear because it is possible to shift into fourth gear without using your clutch if your RPM's are high enough. If you are really lucky you will only have to adjust the clutch, and if your not so lucky you may have the go for a new clutch, preasure plate, and throwout bearing. In any case I would like to know how you make out, please contact me and GOOD LUCK.

Grinding when in reverse and tries bogging down at lights


stop shifting so hard. your reverse gear is the same exact gear as your first, so if you shift hard and grind that gear a little then reverse will be harder to get into. you probably need your transmission rebuilt the harder your engine has to work the more its going to bogg down

My third gear grinds when i shift to third it doesnt grind when i double clutch up all the time but it grinds on the down shift double clutch or not how can i solve this?


Has the transmission been serviced? A transmission oil change and lubricant additive may help, however, it sounds as though you have a 3rd gear synchronizer going bad. Verify the shift linkage is not worn and is secure at the shifter and transmission be for spending any cash. If the linkage is good and the fluid change does not help after 150 miles, you might want to visit your favorite transmission shop.
Good luck and let me know.
