    damn tranny

    well first off i'm on my second tranny, first one i broke 4th gear, don't ask me how, so when i replace the tranny i installed a clutch master stg 4 6 puck clutch, figured while i was in there get that out the way, cost me 600 dollars, so with the cost of new tranny and clutch and labor came out to about 2600 dollars, So about 2 months go by and my third gear started grinding, i'm like wtf? grant it was a use tranny, but only had 7000 miles on it, but the idiots only gave me a 30 day warranty, Fu*king bastards, now im so heated. so yesterday i go to the shop to get my axle replace that needed changing but just to busy to fix it, so i finally had time and got it fix yesterday along with my fuel leak, which was leaking from my return line off the fuel pressure regulator, so im like cool i can finally boost a lil again. so im going down university floored it in 2nd and shift to third and nothing didn't grind or anything. so i proceeded to do the same thing, and sure nuff the same thing happend again. so my third gear was finally gone, no biggie cause i knew this was gonna eventually happen. damn me, so i got home and im thinking well i really don;t need third so i;ll just drive around like that till i get the other tranny. well this morning i work up and i was driving and i'm cruising in 4th and i go to shift into 5 and it won't go, ok so i slowed down and try to shift into 2nd and it would go, so i put it in nuetral and let off the clutch and and its still in 4 gear (wtf is up with that) i put it in third and its still in the same gear(4th), this is to weird, so i was stuck driving around for a bit with only 4 gear. Trust me it wasn't fun, i know i burnt my clutch a lil bit, hope not to bad.

    Well i talked to the guy earlier and he's gonna have the tranny out in a couple day's good and bad in a way. so i'll be out of a car for a couple days, ohhh well **** happends, thats not gonna stop me from racing tho, i always come back stronger, thanks for reading, damn neons lol

    Damn bro, that sucks!! From what you posted sounds to me like the clutch is causing the problems for it not to go into gear. Have you tried adjusting the clutch pedal to see if it helps? Since you arent grinding, then i dont think its the gear or syncros, sounds like a clutch problem imo.Looks like the clutch may not be disengaing fully and causing the problem,but i could be wrong. Go get it checked any how. Hope you didnt blow the tranny again What shop you taking it to?

    I dont have 500hp either and Ive gone through 4 tranny's. My trans doesnt like low end torque, thats basically my car.

    You must be a hardcore driver Kmoy, like me. Hahaha. Sorry to hear that.

    sounds to me, the reason you are breaking tranny is cause of ur 6-puck disc. I know quite a few pple who went thru tranny's like crazy coz of the disc. When putting your tranny back together try replacing your disc with a street disc. I drive my car pretty damn hard or atleast used to when it was running. just my $0.02

    the first tranny broke with the stock clutch, so i figure while the tranny is out might aswell put an upgraded clutch in there, i do drive the car pretty hard, everyday, all day. the shifter linkage is fine, i do think its self adjusting, not sure. gotta check into it. and no i don't have 500hp, i'll be there one day tho, well by the end of the yeah (shhhhhhhh) got lots of plans for her. well i'm hoping to have it all installed by this weekend, wish me luck.
