i advise u not to drive the car coz if u are getting the grinding noise it means the clutch is not disengaging properly, u might be doing more damage if u are still hearing the grinding noises.....

get it fixed quickly.... dont do what i done and wait till the bearings melt.... its a bitch!!!!!

hello,

It can also be the sychro for 2nd gear too. it seems like all cars have problems with the 2nd gear. Does it grind when the car is warm? If the clutch is not working properly then you will have a problem even starting up the car because you have to push your foot on the peddle. i guess that is my two cents.

Thats what i dont get. Every other gear is fine, and starting up is fine. Its just 2nd gear. But then again i know that the guy who changed my clutch was an ass and did a horrible job. My car has been idling hi since he fixed it. My car ket stalling. But this was like almost a year ago that i got it fixed. But this 2nd gear thing has been happening for a long time now

hello,

yeah get that clutch checked out. Then it has to be also the 2nd gear synchro. As i had said before it is a common problem in 5speeds. You might want to get the tranny oil changed too. What i usually do, is I go through all the gear before I start driving when the car is cold. Also, I don't jump on the car too, so I felt a difference when doing that. 2nd gear feels much smoother, and I usually put it in lightly when the car is cold.

Could someone tell me more about this 2nd gear thing...I had my tranny oil changed a while ago..3 mths...stupid me didn't check what oil they put it...it seemed like after that though 2nd gear is kinda hard to go in when my car is cold...I usually let my car warm up before driving it and it still does it...after driving maybe 2-3 blocks then it begins to go in smoothly...from what you guys are saying is this a problem that is going to lead to more serious ones down the road?...and anymore suggestions that can work?

probably some broken fingers...maybe. when you pull the engine and push the clutch to the floor, it stays there. have the clutch checked.

and about the 2nd gear grinding, it just gets worse. my second gear was grinding, it got worse and worse until one time the tranny got stuck in 2nd...that really sucked.
