Tranny Problems

Hey I have a 97 Mustang GT 5 speed that I recently put a clutch and of course as well as the pilot and throw out bearing in and it was fine for a while, but here recently any back pressure on the transmission such as reverse or downshifting it makes like a vibration/rubbing noise. I talked to somebody and he seemed to think it was a bearing. Any ideas on what my problem could be and the price?

Thanks

What do you mean is it like a grind or chirp noise? Is it hard to go into gear? Is it the trans vibrating? How did your mount look? Is it when your foot is on the clutch?

I have a similar problem with 4th gear. If I don't hit it just right, it'll grind and spit it back out into neutral lol.

Mine does the same thing going into 4th and reverse. Syncros I guess?

It is. Am about to buy a high end T-bearing. Will change clutch later when I have more HP.

Just figured it out that after market clutch plates are whack no matter what you do. When tehy heat up they glaze then slip causing shudder. High end TOB don't help. I tried it like I planned above. Will do a clutch upgrade when I install PI heads.

With the T45, I changed to RP. Now it glides, but rear end needs rebuild too. Essentially, short cutting drive train performance on an older car is well, useless. I plan on building from rear to front.

Reference is made to stock clutches. Not high performance, dependable clutch kits.

Re: Tranny Problems

I would definately check the mounts first. Since it was just worked on, could simply be that they were not tightened properly. It could be jumping around when you downshift or go into reverse.
