Grindes when selecting 3rd gear 1992 rodeo 5-speed 2x4

Postby Antonis » Thu Dec 21, 2017 10:27 am

After behaving not so good at my transmission I noticed that when I am selecting 3rd gear it grinds.I also noticed that if I try to push the gear lever very gently, most of the times it doesn't grinds. Clutch is all the pushed by the way.Is it the synchro rings; I changed transmission 3 years ago so is there any solution except from replacing the gearbox;Will transmission oil change make any difference;

Not to be a smart alec... But are you sure your rev matching pretty dead on when you double clutch?

See if it does it from a dead stop as well... If it's hard to push if into gear at a dead stop you might have air in your line possibly

I don't know but the last few days it only grinds when 4th to 3rd at high speed (when 3rd is around 3000-4000rpm) Of I wait until the rpm drops in 4th gear (around 40kph)it shifts fine
