Transmission stick goes back to neutral when put on 3rd gear

35

Asked by Jan 31, 2016 at 10:21 PM about the 1996 Toyota Corolla

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a toyota corolla 96 1.6 gli. Manual transmission.

Problem happens when i switch to the 3rd gear, the transmission stick pops
back to neutral. It'll stay on the 3rd gear if i get my speed up to atleaat
40kph  while on 2nd gear. But it doesnt normally do that before. I tried just
stepping on the clutch, switch on the 3rd before slowly releasing the clutch
but then it still pops back to neutral making funky noise like a grinding metal
or something.

Syncros are are gone, most likely are getting ground up as you drive it, that is the noise, time for a transmission overhaul or replacement.
