l just bought a 1998 VW cabrio convertible manual 5 speed and it shifts smooth into all gears but when I'm in reverse it emits a soft crunching sound. What is this?
I just bought a 1998 VW Cabrio convertible manual 5-speed. It shifts smooth into all gears and reverse, but when I start going faster in reverse it makes a crumpling, soft grinding or crunching sound, but not loud or alot. Is this a problem? I didn't check the transmission fluid yet. It has 98,000 miles, but looks new and the top works great and its loaded.
you may want to get a transmission fluid change...the thing about "let sleeping dogs lie"...but would be an opportunity to rid the grounds of any shreds of brass that are the ones makin' with the noise~
Thank you........Do you mean a transmission fluid flush? And are there any filters or other things that would help the fluid change?
at the very least there will be a magnetic plug...not sure on filtration of Manual Transmission fluid...could investigate...probably should get off my toucas and start actin' like a GURU and diggin' into the web and finding the answer here~...yes a manual transimission fluid change could not hurt...will check at a filter block...that way we won't have to drop the pan~
thank you very much.....................!!!
