No idea how old the clutch is, I only bought the car 3weeks ago, I tried it a little bit ago and the it made the same grinding noise and the car jerked pretty hard, is it because its cold? or do I need to change the tranny fluid?
Are you letting the transmission spool down after you push in the clutch from it being in neutral? If so:
The problem is that the clutch is dragging. Changing the tranny fluid is not a bad idea, but it won't help your problem.
You most likely have a problem with the clutch hydraulics (leaking / bad clutch master or slave), air in the cutch lines, a mid-adjusted clutch pedal, or a bad clutch. There also are a handful of other possibilities, most of which involve loose fasteners.
i'm not sure... ITA knows a hell of a lot more than me, but i almost think it would grind 1st gear as well if it was your clutch...
if you aren't letting your transmission spool down, that could be the problem, make sure your car is stopped, push the clutch all the way in... if you are short u may have a problem with it... mine grinds if i don't push the clutch ALL THE WAY in (as far as my clutch pedal goes right now)
I push the clutch as far as it can go and I am 6" so im sure it goes down all the way it jsut started doing it one day, it didnt do it when I test drove it, SO should I put it in 3rd then into reverse? Also could it be that the idle is high?
uhh...i dont know if it has anything to do with it..but i had that problem..and i didnt intentionaly change my gear oil because of that..but i changed it cause it was time..and there was tranny oil in there...but anyways..it stopped grinding for some reason and it goes in smooth..iono if it has anything to do with it..or it was just a coincidence.
