wtf,i put 2 bottles of 40w oil in my tranny it didnt filll it up but i thought that would work for now…so i start the car up and try to put it in reverse,every time i try it make that grind noise…i put it in 1st gear just a little i thought it was gone make that noise again so i just stop and turned the car off cause i didnt want it to make that grind noise but why it do that?..when the car not started it go in every gear,i hope i dont have to drop the tranny again…
Probably you didn’t let the trans get fluid to all it gears. I wount lube it self as soon as you pour in the bottles give it a couple of secs. And make sure you have enough fluid because i know you don’t want to have to change the tranny.
Auto to Manual-Done,lot of props go to partiboi…he helped me out a lot even though i asked him stupid questions about the swap lol…the car still starts i didnt even rewire any thing i just left the auto slider thing there and the car still starts,for the top tranny mount i shimed it.that was easy like drve2fst said,it wasnt that hard like i thought it was.the problems i had i solved them…any body thats planning to do this swap shouldnt have any problems,its not even hard like i thought it was going to be…manual is so much faster then a auto! well if any one have any question post or email me firstname.lastname@example.org l8r
i am in the middle of a 5spd swap and i ran into a problem.
on the pedals i cant get the top bolt off, the one above the brake. iv got everything off and the top bolt is inaccessible. on the downer car i just ripped everything out(vents wires steering wheel) but i don’t want to do that this time.
so what i was wondering is, is the a easier way to get the bolt off,
can i cut the clutch part off the bracket and bolt it onto the existing pedals?
looks easy enough, i am a welder and machinist. i would also have to adapt the brake pedal.
you dont need that gold box. toss it. its the auto tranny computer. you should be able to get all the bolts off w/o too many problems. i did this swap last year so any other questions feel free to ask.
