  • transmission noises

    Went wheelin the other day and develop a noise which seems to come from the transmission. It sounds like pebbles being spun in a can. Seems to be coming from the base of the shifter. It is only sporadic though. Never heard it on the 2 hour drive home. Any ideas?

      Rocks in the bellhousing is a possibility. It could be something else though. Does it do it in a specific gear, under acceleration, deceleration, coasting, etc? You could always use this as an opportunity to service the gear oil in the tranny. Drain it and see if anything other than gear oil comes out. Once it is drained use a flashlight and look inside to see if anything is laying in there. It could be a bearing coming apart or any number of things.

        Good advice. I used Royal Purple when I did my T5 last time...made a world of difference!
