Re: Tranny question

I guess what we would want to know, is what you mean by 'hear the tranny go into gear'? I take it that it is a manual trans since you are shifting it. What is the outside temp or at what temp in the tranny? Does it go away after the trans warms up? Most people feel it go into gear and not hear it. If you are hearing it (gears grinding into mesh) then your syncros are not working properly. Thick or cold tranny fluid would do this as would low or no tranny fluid. Being still under warranty I would have the dealer look into it. Could also be your clutch not fully disengaging; how is it going into gear from a stop into first from neutral?

Re: Tranny question

More than likely your syncros are not getting the next gear up to speed before the gear catches. How cold is the trans (outside temp if sitting) and does it go away after things have warmed up? Cold trans lube will make things clunky. If it doesn't matter what temp the trans is, then I would look at it the clutch is fully disengaging. I would defiantly have the dealer look at it and not take a 'that's with in specs' reply from the dealer. I know on my F250 SD after awhile (30K miles or so) the plastic hydraulic clutch system doesn't release the clutch all the way and I have to replace it; my truck has a heavy duty Kevlar clutch set-up. I wonder it the Mustangs have something similar.

Re: Tranny question

It only does it when it's cold out, once the tranny warms up it goes away

Re: Tranny question

This something that you want to run by your dealer and have them at least note in your file that you are having problems with these synchro's. It sounds like you have 1 or 2 synchros that are not quire right and the thicker cold fluid is not helping. At some point down the road it is a very good possibility that you will have more failure of these sychros. With this still under warranty you want to make sure that everything is noted by the dealer. Of course the dealer will note want to do anything until they fail totally (hopefully after warranty). More than likely you want see this problem when the weather warms up, which means that it will lay hidden longer. By getting it on the record you will stand a better chance of recourse even after a short time after the warranty. Also make sure that if they are not willing to address the synchro issue at that time that you get in writing that they understand that you are having problems. A car that new should not be having tranny synchro issues until well over150K miles. Please note that this is under regular drive, racing will put more strain on everything.
Good luck
