    Sounds like old/low/improper fluid.

    Swap it and let us know if its still happening. If that doesn't fix it, at least you know you don't have several year old fluid in your trans.

    And if it looks new, change it anyway. Old trans fluid usually looks fresh as the day it was put in.

    I really like the Synchromesh fluid from GM. As odd as it seems, when I was running a B16's tranny with 10w-30 I would get some minor grinds in second on high rpm, heavy shifts and then switch to Synchromesh and never had another grind out of it even with a whole season out at the track. Coincidence? Most likely not.

    How does royal purple compare to GM Synchmesh ?? I am running Honda MTF and I get some grinds on hard shifts at high RPM.

    Someone told me that diesel fuel was the best way to go ? ? ? ? ?

    Honda MTF and General Motors Syncromesh are probably the two best fluids for your tranny. if youre getting grinds with honda mtf, try syncromesh.

    Don't forget that the GM Synchromesh and the GM Synchromesh Friction Modified are two different products. If you go with the GM stuff, make sure you ask for the correct product. They also have GM Friction Modifier. It's an additive that you add to what ever tranny fluid you decide to use. I heard that if you use GM Synchromesh with the GM Friction Modifier, it DOES NOT become equivalent to the GM Synchromesh Friction Modified stuff.

    Honda MTF actually worked out better in my tranny than Synchromesh did but everyone's car is different so I hope it works out for you.
