Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


Worn syncros, bad cluster shaft bearings, badly worn 2nd and 4th gears, shift fork, etc. Most likely fix is a tranny overhaul or replacement. If you can't afford a rebuild or a new tranny, you could try a wrecking yard for a used one that has a warranty then all you stuck with is the labor for R&R and fluids.
