A couple of weeks ago I replaced my clutch with a new one from Perfection clutch. The swap went smoothly, all went as it should have. But now afterwards, I have noise coming from second and fourth gear. The clutch itself doesn't have any chatter or unusual sound, and engages perfectly as it should.


The sound it is making started faintly, only in second gear, and now quite loud, and is the same in fourth gear. It sounds similar to grinding, but between smooth surfaces. Just a constant Whir through the RPM range. I did flush the fluid in the tranny while I was at it, and the fluid came out without any shavings, or even any metal dust in it, so the gears should be fine. Doesn't affect driving at all, the clutch works perfectly. But now my tranny is noisy and it's driving me nuts. Does anyone have any Idea where I should look first? :icon_confused:

Possible you tweaked the input shaft during removal/installation. Or flipped a needle sideways from the the pilot bearing that is now bottoming out the input putting pressure on the shaft.

So after about 2 weeks of absolutely baby-ing the truck because of the sound, I needed to use my truck like I normally would, make it work like a truck. I needed to pick up a car I was getting for my girlfriend. The car needs a transaxle, so it had to be dollied. I loaded up all the tools I could need, put gas in the ranger, and drove the 40 miles to get the car, and haul it back. The drive is extremely hilly, so a lot of shifting involved. I pushed the truck hard, and after 35 of 40 miles, the sound in second and fourth gear were totally gone. I Cant believe it but the sound is right back to normal, smooth and quiet.

Sounds like the tip of the shifter stub is bent, or in the wrong place. Thats why it only has issues shifting one direction.
