Just gave advice to my friend, tell me am I right?
Who are you in the conversation, because BCNCTM Seems right to me... :thumbs:
Right about what?
I am BuddyClubNeonCTM. He drives a 1999 Nissan Altima GXE 112k miles. Transmission grinds after 5000RPM, but if he drives it normally, he will never even hit 4000
heh, actually. engines can last more than trannies just as trannies could
last more than engines.
it all depends on how u drive the car and how u treat it..... and how well u maintain it.
does it grind in any gear? wat sort of grinding does it do? could even be the engine itself.....
i told him to jsut drive it normally and thats that
It usually grinds when turning from gear 1 to gear 2 when I floor it excessively and it gets to about 4500 RPM. I'm not sure what it is specifically, but since it doesn't get in the way yet (drive normally and it's not existant), I don't bother.
does it grind only when shifting, or before and after shifting (not during)?
it grinds right before it shifts
as soon as you let it off it stops
im sure its ok as long as you keep it at low RPMs
it accelerates nicely
and smooth shifts
almost as good as my boss's Infiniti I30
might be the pinion.... or maybe some lose bearings in the crankshaft... quite a few possibilities of wat could be making grinding noises....
were gona run it thru a computer and post codes we get.
u know wat could help too? telling where the noise comes from....
Last night was a prefect opprotunity to test the car again. No cars on the road, so i floored it. No grinding anymore. Might have been a lack of tranny fluid before. Car pulls well.
