Noisy gear shift after long drives.?

What does it mean?

After highway driving of 1.5 hours plus, I go to shift from 1st to 2nd and hear/feel the teeth clatter. If I very carefully, and fully depress the clutch in subsequent shifts it stops.

Never seems to happen cold.



Clutch worn?

Synchros are starting to go.........

So you are double clutching..... to fix the problem.

How many miles on her?

I would say you clutch is not disengaging once its heated up... is it harder to get into gear also? As in physically harder to move the shifter?

Not physically harder to move the shifter.

Origional clutch
90k
2 very adult PO's plus me...(fairly adult). No power shifting, chirping etc.

I think age has gotten to the rubbercenter.

Just trying to figure out how long I have....We all know everyone with the origional clutch has that job in their future...just a matter of when.

So this means I will probably need to do the clutch and tranny job both when the time comes?

Maybe a flush and fill with swepco might help her hold on for a few more years.

( I have no idea of the age/condition/level of the tranny fluid)

It is easy to do the tranny when doing the clutch, opposed to two seperate reapirs obviously... I think you will be in for a loud clunk sooner rather than later. I did the gear box in my old 944, its not a nice experience. The problem is it costs so much to check these things properly and with confidence if you are not doing it yourself...

Tranny fluid replacement is definitely a good idea.

If you suspect the rubber center is disintegrating .... take a look through the inspection hole. You will probably see lots of black rubber residue......

Swapping fluids will help the synchros as well.
