98 Isuzu quick question
Saturday, May 14, 2011 2:47 PM
I believe I read that the isuzu 1st and reverse are not synchronized right? My dad was driving my car and tried to shift into 1st and it grinds. He usually drives his Saturn SW2 and it dosen't do this. I believe I read somewhere that the Isuzu is not synchronized, but now I can't find that info. Thanks in advance for the answer

Reverse is not synchronized, but 1st through 5th are. You're synchros are just dieing like most Isuzu synchros do.



Paying someone to install parts and bragging about it being fast, is like watching someone bang your wife and being proud to raise their kids.

So now the transmission is making a whine in the lower gears pretty much all the time. Dipstick said it was between add and full, and it looks like they used engine oil. Should I drain this and fill with ATF and some Lucas? Or am I pretty much SOL and hope this lasts until I can afford something better?

Do NOT put ATF in a manual transmission. Hydraulic fluid =/= gear oil. These transmissions hate anything but GM Synchromesh.

The sound you are hearing is the sound of your bearings dieing.

that's a rather sweeping generalization there. the 00+ getrag manual trans came with atf from the factory. however, you are right, the isuzu loves synchromesh and nothing but.

Oh rly?....

That just seems like a bad idea, being that gear old and hydraulic oil are two very different liquids.
