I have a weird noise from 4th and 5th gear that is a grinding kind of sound. It doesn't do it when I am going slower. I only have problems with this noise when I am going around 55-60+. Any ideas on what this could be?

5th is a weak gear, could be the syncro going bad (you ever shift hard into 5th?)

you have an aftermarket shifter?

try shifting otu of 4th into neutral, letting off the clutch pushing it back in then slowly going to 5th see if it grinds

I dont think it would be a syncro because it doesnt grind when i go in 5th. It just grinds while i am in the gear. Ive never heard of it before. Ive heard of bad syncros, but ive never heard of it grinding while I am in the gear. I have a short-throw shifter. Would that make a difference? It started a couple days ago.
