this is a standard transmission...right?
yes; 5 sp
you will need to replace the clutch kit
does it also slip in 4th and 5th?
I was hoping you were going to say there was a way to adjust it or something.
4th and 5th are puuurfect
1st and 2nd are as well
you mean,,that 3d is the only gear it slips in?
3rd does fine as long as the rpms aren't too high
so..it just scrapes when shifting to 3rd
it's like a slight crunch going in
this isnt good
i wouldnt think this is a cltch problem,,sense it only does it in the one gear
sounds more like,,the sycronizers..in the transmission
if we keep the rpms down and avoid the crunches can we get along for a while; do you think?
i would think so
any other advice?
just bo't it for my son
well..i would think the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced to fix this
problem arose while teaching him to drive manually
but,,it shouldnt hurt anything as long as you dont grind it into gear too much
the car's immaculate w/74k miles; thanks
you are very welcome
