another question. about my trans, when i take off in first, you can hear a slight whining noise that progressively gets to a higher pitch the faster i move. it almost sounds like a faint dog box trans. is this normal?
Its a five speed right? It might be a be a throw out bearing?
Yeah its a 5 speed. And idk, it almost sounds like gears humming at a high pitch. Also if I shift any higher than 2500rpm from 3rd to 4th, it will grind. 1st as well. I have to be basically stopped to put it back into 1st.
maaaaaannnnnn, just more stuff to replace lol. i mean, it seems as if the trans is fine, just grinds in 4th at a mid-high rpm range. and 1st unless im practically stopped. i dont even shift into 4th anymore anyways, 4th gear is over so fast during normal driving, so i just go from 3rd to 5th.
try checking your tranny oil. low oil will cause gear whine
Lol wow i didnt even think about that to be honest.

doing it in the morning. i drove a little more today because the tick was still there, it comes and goes. hopefully the oil change helps.
but i was looking at some youtube videos and came accross this video of a guy saying his ticking is coming from a cracked valve spring retainier. although his is a klze. idk if that completely matters or not, but his tick is much similar to mine.
