Have the clutch checked first by a mechanic you trust-perhaps a small shop with a good reputation. The clutch could just be worn out. If the clutch checks out okay, then he will want to check the tranny itself next.

Good luck to you and Thank you for using Fix ya!

I have a 96 camaro, 5 speed that recently had the same problem. I thought for sure I had to replace the clutch. It turned out the hydualic fluid was low. The fluid is for the slave cylinder that controls
the clutch. If it is low the clutch will only be partially working. It is locating by the fire wall beside the brake master cylinder. Top it up if it needs it and check the levels periodically to make sure the slave cylinder is'nt leaking. good luck

03 staurn ion 5th gear grinds going in? No other gear does this. If I let rpms drop to 1 then put into 5th gear it doesnt grind. What could this be? Expensive fix?


It sounds like you have a bad synchronizer. Before you tear the transmission apart to fix it, make sure your fluid is full. You might add some additive that can smooth things out. Also, make sure your clutch master and slave cylinders aren't leaking.

What is it when in reverse the automatic transmission on a 1999 Camaro grinds?


Reverse is not "synchronized" forward gears are, so it does make some noise, try shifting to 2nd before engaging reverse to slow gear rotation and limit gear clash or grind.

It may not be the transmission, it could be the clutch or clutch pressure plate. Try double clutching (pump the clutch twice) before shifting.

I was driving to work this morning and was in 3rd gear, went to down shift at a stop sign and its stuck in 3rd gear. 1988 jeep wrangler. It has been grinding the gear for a few weeks now everytime I change...


The 3rd Gear Synchro is worn or damaged, which is why it grinds when you try to upshift or downshift into 3rd gear. When it goes out completely you will have a very hard time shifting into 3rd gear, since the Synchro lines up the gears to make shifts smooth and easy.

Cant shift? reverse grinds? and pressure in clutch is low


What you describe sounds very much like the clutch is failing to disengage.
Fluid level being fine and no leaks under the car is good, but doesnt mean there isnt something wrong with either the master cylinder, slave cylinder, or the associated parts.

Highly unlikely there is a fault with the flywheel or clutch as failures with these would normally give no drive in any gear.
