Transmission

So recently my trans won't let me go into third gear, whenever I try to it makes a bad noise and pops it back out. I've looked at my throw out bearing and it was great. Any suggestions?

Manual? I would say either 2 things both happened to me......synchro or the tranny mount.

May sound stupid but what do you technically mean by "synchro"? Is that related to the forks?

Re: Transmission

I got this off another website but they were referring to the first gear syn but its the same concept.

yeah basically between each cog in the gear box is a small synchronizser which is usually known as a synchro-mesh. It is called this becuase as you go to slide from one cog in the gear box to the next cog (i.e changing gear) the 2 synchros mesh with each other so the selected cog and the cog you are about to change to spin at the same speed. This enables you to have a smooth gear change. When they are not spinning at the same speed and you go to change gear you can hear the synchros grind on each other.
