Do you have any information about the reverse grinding by itself even when I have the glutch pedal fully pressed. I know the trouble I see to have in 1 and 2 are probably the synchronizers everyone is talking about.
My car does that sometimes too. My 02 mustang gt also did the same thing. Both my 11 and 02 went to the dealership years back for this and they never find anything wrong. Their answer is to change out the transmission fluid and flush it, which I did for the 02 and it did not make any difference, prob was still there. I notice some times it even makes the same"scratch" noise going into first gear. First and reverse are usually the same gear inside the tranny. I don't know if it's a characteristic of these cars or not but it seems like a lot of mustangs do it. There is a trick to skiiping this issue:
If going into first gear, while holding the clutch pedal down, put it into second gear then immediately into first. No "scratch" sound
Going into reverse, put it into second, first, then reverse, no "scratch" sound again
The clutch is disengaged as long as you keep the pedal depressed and you don't let off so this will not hurt anything and you will get by without that nasty sound.
You should only need to do that the first few times going into first or reverse. It should not continue to do it after you drive it for a while.
I run mobile 1 fully synthetic in it. Maybe the use of amsoil or royal purple will fix it but I don't see those oils being that much better than mobile 1. Come back and let us know if that fixed it
