    My 3rd gear grinds sometimes when engaged...
    my mechanic said it might be a faulty tranny synchro tru the previous owner beating on it too much :( :(
    1. WHATS DO YOU GUYS THINK?
    2. HOW LONG do YU THINK THE TRANNY HAS LEFT OR CAN I JUST CHANGE THE SYNCHROS?
    3. dO YOU THINK A FRESH DOSE OF HONDA TRANNY FLUID MIGHT HELP??
    ...I haven't pickd the car up yet but when i do i will submit pics

    THANKS

    it is most likely a bad synchro and they can be repalced, fluid might help aswell.

    IT is a jdm h22a tranny
    do you think if i don't use the 3rd gear as much might save it also
    ie. (7k rpm) shifts in first and second then jumping to fourth on occasions
    just a thought??

    People who don't like Honda's might wanna visit the fordswap.com, subaruswap.com, nissanswap.com, or some other website. :slap:

    Some people seem to think that GM Syncromesh is a half-cure. I have not tried it myself, but am willing......do a search on it.

    Hey Ive heard friends that have had bad syncros and so they use Lucus Oil transmission fluid! Its really thick and i guess it works good! give it a try! I think its around 7.00 and its carried by most autozones, napas, or what ever your favorite automotive store is!

    Fucked for every day driving, or fucked like stuck? You could probably drive it into the ground with fucked synchros, but your every day shifting would suck. If you line up your engine rpms with your tranny, or double clutch, you could shift without using the clutch. I doubt you'd get stuck anywhere for quite a while unless something major snaps inside. Good luck.

    hey Kingmark63

    just use the Lucas Heavy Duty Oil Stabilizer along w/ new oil if your gonna put anything into it.
    If you have an LSD then it's a different story but otherwise just drain your tranny fluid and try that out.

    Another suggestion would be to use synthetic oil. I put mobile 1 Full Synthetic into my tranny and it really smoothed things out (yes it was grinding at first but i think it was b/c the fluid was so low)
