Gearbox noisy in 1st 2nd and 3rd gear.


No make, model, year, etc, or even if you're referring to an automatic or manual gearbox. If it's a four-speed manual, you may have bearings going on your countershaft. The first three gears transmit torque through the countershaft, the fourth gear is (usually) direct drive and doesn't go through the countershaft.

Fiesta started making noises either gearbox or clutch? clunks going in to reverse, shudders driving off in 1st gear


sounds like your clutch is going out, is it hard to put in gear with clutch all the way depressed? could also be the sinkronyzer going out, could be the gears in the transmission also going bad. need to check the fluid in the transmission.

It makes a loud clunking sound when selecting 1st gear and second gear,debating whetehr to buy it


Sounds like the clutch either needs adjusting or the gear box has been abused. Would factor in gearbox rebuild to cost of the bike! May just be a case of getting the gears recut!

2005 Corolla's manual trasmission shifts gears, it clunks


hi mate , sounds like the SPIGOT bearing its a little bearing that allows the gearbox to be at a different seed than the engine flywheel and if this is in bad condition it will take the gearbox front shaft to a higher speed than comfortable for gearshift , in the meantime when you go for 1st or reverse gear just engage a gear like 4th without taking your foot off the clutch and then go for 1st or reverse, this will stop the gearbox spining long enough for a smooth shif, oNLY USE THIS METHOD WHILE STaTIONARY and see a professional when you get time.

Engaging 1st gear the gear grinds an clunks into


Often the transmission will clunk when first starting up and shifting into 1st. gear. To help alleviate this, hold the clutch lever in for thirty seconds or so before making that first shift into gear. This should make shifting into first much quieter.
This situation occurs on most of the FJRs, even when new.

04 Sportster 883 gearbox Clunk.


Big Twins clunk too, especially into 1st with a cold motor, even if you free the clutch off first. When I remember, I snick it into gear, pull in the clutch and roll it back and forward to free off the plates. And it still clunks. Sometimes, you will slip from neutral into 1st, almost with no effort, and no clunk and so smooth you don't believe it's engaged (but it is). Weird. I have smooth changes from 4th to 5th and back again, sometimes from 3rd to 4th, but 3rd to second and second to 1st are always a BIG clunk, even if you give it some stick to try and match the revs before changing down. I now go from second to neutral and then into 1st, which is not a lot of fun when you are negotiating a hairpin on Glenquaich at the time... A tighter primary chain seems to reduce the clunk, and there are those who say that auto primary adjusters/tensioners (does a Sporty have one of them?) reduce the clunk. Some disagree... Assume you find it's much better when it's hot..
