Ok so today I purchased my 2001 zx2. I paid to much but I wanted a nicer new car and it was one of the best in my price range.
Its heater core is disconnected and the front brakes are warped to the point stopping is almost as bad as hitting the car in front of you.
Anyway. The biggest problem I have is the fact that the transmission crunches into 3rd.
It only does it when I am accelerating and immediately shift. Clutch is all the way to the floor and go from second to third and I get a small 2 second crunch.
Now if I push the clutch in and hold the clutch down for 3-4 seconds and slowly push the stick up into third it usually makes no grind and goes in without issue.
I guess my question is… anyone else have this problem with their transmission.
I did just change it from ATF to Pennzoil Synchromesh and it made no difference.
