3rd Gear Grind

I grind in 3rd gear and reverse quite often. Is there something that can reduce it? I've heard syncro-mesh transimission oil or something works great. Any suggestions? Can't afford a tranny rebuild yet... :(

Re: 3rd Gear Grind

syncro-mesh might help a lil bit, but nothing to drastic. if it happens @ every rpm, then its simply your syncro is on its way out. nothing to do other than rebuilding the tranny, so if you can deal with it.....

Re: 3rd Gear Grind

Hmm. You think it'd be worth doing a Type-S swap instead since I'll most likely need a tranny and engine rebuild or swap. Engine is knocking a bit sometimes.

Re: 3rd Gear Grind

okay... i have experience with this... its not syncros. its actually your revers/idler gear. for some reason they go bad. not much you can do try the fluid but thats not a cure.

i wouldn't do a type s swap... i recommend a jdm h22a swap w/ jdm lsd tranny m2b4.

Hmmm. How much do those engines/tranny's run for. Since I won't be doing any labor, my guess is I'll be dropping anywhere from $1000 to $1500 on labor alone.

Re: 3rd Gear Grind

Your looking at anywhere from 2,500-3,000 in tranny alone. I know I got quotes for my 5 speed swap and I save more money from taking the engine out of my lude, and dropping it into a higher mileaged new 5 speed Lude

Re: 3rd Gear Grind

Eeeekkkk. I think I'd just stick with a same engine swap. That or rebuild.
