Wondering about my T5.

  1. The tranny used to grind into third very rarily in warmer weather, like maybe 1 time for every 100 shifts into third.

    Now with the unusually cold weather in my area (below freezing), it does it more often and usually stops after driving for a while (once its wamred up a little I guess).

    Its a 91 notch and only has 108Kkms or about 65-70Kmiles. Does it sound like the third gear synchros are about to give in? I've heard some people say some t5's do this and dont worry about it.

    Other than that the tranny shifts smooth as butter.
  2. sounds to me like the synchros are on the way out. mine wouldn't grind unless i was shifting very fast, then it would grind every time. maybe a tranny expert will chime in soon and don't be afraid to use the seach, it is very useful.


  3. mine does it in second sometimes when i first start the car and start driving, so i just take it easy going into second. ( let the rpm's drop a little) why dont you go 1,2, and then to 4 when first driving in the morning, let the trany fluid warm up, then try 3rd
