Slipping gears

Post by brewman » Fri Aug 26, 2011 1:01 am



On my way home tonite, getting on the expressway,powering up in 4th gear the transmission slips and grinds like it's trying to come out of gear. All the way home when in 4th and I give it gas it'll do it. Anybody have this happen?

It could be worn dogs for that gear (from grinding gears) or a bent shift fork that is preventing it from being fully engaged in the first place. In either case, it requires splitting the engine case to get to.
