4th to 5th shifting issue and hard as hell get into R -

Ok so my 00 mustang makes a grind noise when going into 5th from 4th gear when driving highway speeds, city driving no noise... Also hard as hell sometimes to get my car into reverse, syncho's going out or... what could this be?

Thanks again.

I had that issue too. I didnt have any reverse problems. Just sometimes if I didnt do a granny shift I'd get a small grind. I havent had that issue since I had my entire clutch assembly replaced. I had a throwout (release) bearing and clutch fork problem with my car.

Is this a new condition or has it always done it?

Reverse is not synchronized like the forward gears, so car pretty much needs to be stopped to get into gear.. even then I find shifting to 5th or 4th (without releasing clutch) then to reverse quiets it right down..

If it's a new condition and both 5th and reverse are affected I'd say you've got a shift fork effed up...

adjust the clutch, if the clutch cable is loose then when you push the clutch in you wont push it in enough, basically think of it like trying to shift when the clutch is in half way~ its hard to do

thats the first step. Get upside down facing upwards under the drivers dash. Put a hand on the clutch quadrant (above the gas petal) and use the other to push the clutch in all the way. Hold the quadrant as you ease out on the clutch. Let the quadrant rotate just hold tension against its rotation. It will "click" to take up slack. Do this about 3 times until the clutch petal is FIRM at the top. Test it by driving holding your foot on the gas at 45mph and ease in the clutch holding the gas steady. If you push it in a half an inch before the rpms start to climb thats the sweet spot, you want at least a half an inch of petal before the slip of the rpms (they start to climb)

Try this before thinking the trans is done, but... if this helps and it still shifts bad... then it may have caused the issue. Hope it helps.

Sounds like syncronizer . Try double clutching to see if it shifts any better Double clutching gets the gears turning at the same speed before you shift.
