Second Gear Grind
 
Just seeing if anyone else has issues with grinding the gear going into second. It seems to happen way more than it should and I have the clutch fully depressed. My car has 16000 miles and seems very soon for the syncros to be going out. I was talking to another Saleen owner this weekend (he has a 2005) and he said his grinds frequently too and he has 7000 miles. Any thoughts?

It could be quite a few things....does any style of driving make it do it more?

it has happened a few times if I shift really soon out of first (low rpms), but it happens most at higher rpms (6000 or so).

Kinda sounds like a worn pressure plate.

Ugh, yet another reason I need a new clutch.

Josh,

This is just a guess based upon your symptoms, but it seems very likely.

Mine did it quite a bit as well. You have to learn to be patient when shifting this transmission. If you try to power shift, it will do it. All my mustang friends, even GT mustangs do it. However it seems to not do it now that i have my Steeda Tri Ax in.. I think its almost like it gets pushed passed the gear with the stock shifter when shifting in hard.

Just a thought.
