Gear Change Thud ?


Recommended Posts

hi all, right my gear box drives and changes fine, its nice and tight and changes into gear fine, however when i change from first into second at low revs or quickly theres a very faint almost what i would call a thud? its hard to explain really, it doesnt sound anything bad but just strange really.

is this normal??

when it does it, i cant feel it through the gear stick or anything like that, i could only describe it to be a noise asif you were to punch a feather pillow?

Try changing your gearbox oil. I would highly recommend using RedLine MT-90

I had a similar issue but since changing to MT-90 it only happens on the odd occasion now but I think that's more to do with the hand being faster than the foot :blush: . I also have a TRD direct clutch line sitting in the cupboard waiting to go in so we'll see if that improves things further.

just curious - would replacing the syncro mesh improve the gear changes?

currently (sorry to hijack the thread) when i put into 3rd gear, it feels as though it has hit something and wont slot in 3rd.. so i have to wait a milli secondon and then it slots in....

sorry im not very mechanically minded.. does this sound like the mesh?

cheers
