    Ok, I've had this problem since I bought the peice of shit.

    The trans is fucked to put it in easier terms. It's most likely the differential.

    96 (?I think it was a 96?) GSR Trans, it will move the car in every gear and doesn't grind. The clutch is brand new and engages properly and fine, the slave is fine, the master is fine. The flywheel is fine, but I'm pulling the trans anyway so I'm putting my 8lb one on anyway.

    In first I have to rev it up to at least 2k for it to move, no this is not normal, it will not move an inch and will lock up if I try to ease off the clutch under 2k.

    After I finally get it moving it propells the car fine until about 4.5-5k rpm, then the differential slips (I can hear it, it's not the clutch). All the gears do work, reverse is a little hard to get into, but it makes the noise (keep reading) from idle to whatever engine speed. At 4.5-5k then the diff slips if it doesn't lock it up (it usually locks rather than slips), depressing the clutch releases this lock and continue to let the engine run and it will roll fine, obviously.

    It makes this horrendous sound, it knocks from around the differential area, really bad, it will continue to knock unless the clutch is depressed and you can still hear a rubbing or some type of sound in the differential area. I don't know what the hell is knocking in there either.

    The bold, this makes me think MAYBE it is the clutch because it continues to roll fine, but maybe not.

    Also, releasing the throttle will help but it will jump and lock up the wheels sometimes. Flooring it does nothing, it will not catch and holding the throttle will usually make the engine cut out as well, until it rolls/brakes itself to a stop.

    The engine is fine, it idles at 1k, revs freely to 6.8k in nuetral with the clutch enageged or disengaged.

    So my questions are:
    What would think the problem is with the described symptoms?

    How hard is it to replace a differential? Ive never worked on transmissions/transaxles before

    While I'm in there would it be worth replacing something else, it does not have any grinds in any gear.


    I will not bring the tranmission anywhere. I am buying another trans but everyone always can use a good condition back up. If I cannot do it myself, then I'm selling it.

    Um a stock GSR tranny diff can't slip, it is a regular open LSD. If something is slipping, it is the clutch slipping or the ring gear is broken on the diff. If the ring gear is busted, you have already destroyed the countershaft where it meshes with the ring gear by driving it around. If the tranny is locking, I would bet it is a busted diff and that most everything is trashed in there since you have been circulating metcl chips around in ther this whole time. Drop the tranny and pull the case apart, thats the only surefire way of determining the problem here.

    i pulled it a few hours ago, havent cracked the case yet, but I will. I'll see what i can do with the little knowledge of transmission that I have.

    It's not an LSD btw.

    The clutch is NOT slipping, there is no doubt in my mind anymore, I know what a slipping clutch feels, sounds like and does and what is happening has nothing to do with the clutch. It engages and disengages properly, it is defenitly the internals of the trans.

    Ring gear is possible, would the borken ring gear make some horrendous noises and knocking?

    I only drove the car with it for less than 2 miles, the previous owner I have no clue.

    I will open it up tomorrow though.

    what a peice of shit.

    I went at it yesterday, then got tired and bored after taking off like 5 bolts.

    Today I took the rest off and now the bitch doesnt want to come off. I took all of the bolts around the edges off and it pops up like 1 1/2 inch and won't budge. The oil looked find with no signs of shavings, and looking at the differential side the gear that's right there looks fine, but I need to get it off completely so I can see the hole thing.

    What am I forgetting or do I need to put some good old muscle in it. I tried prying at it with no success.
