helllo guys, i have problem with my tranny, when i brough it. it whines little bit but now 3000 miles later its getting worest.

when in 5th, when not pushing on gas, its hard to hear but once u push gas pedal little bit, it start to whine, gets louder and louder as i go faster, once i hit around 90mph, it gets so loud my shifter vibrates and it hurts my ears little bit.....

i dont think its the gear, but is there like a bearing in the gear or something? it sounds almost just like bad wheel bearing(i had bad wheel bearings before)

any help would be appreciated. if its not too bad, i might just rebuilt it with fresh gears, and time for new clutch anyway for myboost set up...

thanks in advance for any input!!! :bigok:

i think 5th gear whine means it was ran low on fluid. might wait for boner to chyme in


btw if it was run low it is screwed

5th gear is burnt up either low on fluid or blocked oil passages. Plan on replacing 6 bearings, 5th gear, and maybe 4th gear.

ok alright, im gonna check on the fluid level tomorrow, but im pretty sure gear is shot now, hopefully its just low on fluid and will be better after i added some fluid so it last me a couple more months till i pull motor to get ready for boost.

btw im cruising at 3300 at 65mph(4th gear) so its still getting good gas consider i read on the sticky 2900-3200 is most efficient correct?

thanks for the advice guys!

also u got any link to rebuilt tranny(the b series link one is broken)? i think ill attempt to do so, and how much are gears? my 2nd gear pops out sometimes, and a after market lsd while im at it.

Find you a good spare tranny first, swap it in, then tear this one apart.

Helms manual will give you most everything you need to know, even a sticky to get the file at top of this forum.

TAKE AND POST PICS!!!!!

two countershaft bearings, 4-5 roller bearings.....don't forget to inspect 1st and 2nd friction dampers as well, heat from low oil kills them.

Betting some gears are discolored from heat :)

:werd: Though, damage on my transmission wasn't that bad(luckily it wasn't run long while low on fluid); both friction dampers disintegrated and I had burnt oil around 5th gear.

YUP sounds like my top gear are probably toasted haha, old owner said it started whine about a year before i brough it, he never had issue with it then.

i think its probably cheaper just go buy a good trans now and tear it down to replace few seals(rather replace1-3 gears) and add LSD huh?

what kind of lsd would you guys recommend on a budget street car? not looking for some crazy ones just not ebay junk.
