 Post subject: tranny problem
PostPosted: Sat Sep 01, 2001 12:50 pm 
hey all, my brothers mk3 is havins some trouble with the tranny, it´s sound a lot, the shifting is not a problema at all, but it seems something $$$.<br>I haven´t already work with the tranny, but that´s what i have found after my search, the common 2nd problem is not present ,... just the f.)((/ sound.<br><br>It only sounds in neutral, even at parking position if you press the clutch pedal the sound goes, but if you leave the pedal again the sound comes again. The sound is even louder at high speed but if you take it to neutral it stops, maybe is the first satelite or???, Don´t know if the sound comes from the clutch bearing, what do you think???<br><br>Pd i have seen in carparts the item to block and center the clutch when installing a new one, is it necesary or not. <p></p><i></i>

Could be could be the clutch release bearing... does it make a noise if you are in neutral without your foot on the clutch pedal while you ar driving? If it doesn't then it might not be the release bearing. In that case it could be something more like the bearing on the input shaft of the tranny. The noise only comes under load, sounds like it is coming from by the entrance of the CV shafts in to the tranny. <br><br>I drove a couple trannies on my car like that until the point where it got too loud and I swapped in another tranny. If you are going to do a rebuild on the tranny and it is say something loose on the input shaft then the sooner you catch it the better. <br><br>Best thing to do would be to take it to a transmission shop and get an opinion. <br><br>Something I was wondering... was your brothers MK3 ever in an accident? <br><br><br>>>Pd i have seen in carparts the item to block and center the clutch when installing a new one, is it<br>>>necesary or not. <br><br>If the tranny goes on it means that it was aligned enough for the shaft to go on. That special clutch alignment tool usually helps get it right the first time, but it is not neccessary if the tranny goes on with no problem.<br> <p><br><a href="http://www.teamswift.net"><img src="http://members.home.net/2832075173/pics/Swiftafter1c.jpg"></a></img><br>Kyle Jones <b>1989 Suzuki Swift GTi</b><br>Your friendly TeamSwift Op.</p><i></i>

I thing that he has both problems, he started having the clutch release bearing noise, even without driving , in neutral and with the foot off the pedal it sounds a little bit. The louder noise comes when driving and even louder under load, maybe it´s the clutch bearing and bearings from the entrance of the cv-shafts in to the tranny also, i have 2 trannies for spare but both are mine and i don´t want to sell them to him for future changes in my future swift. It also seems to sound louder it you through a hill or something like a ramp. the shifting seems still ok. will a close look the movement of the entrance of the cv - shafts work??????<br><br>He bought it with 50.000 miles, don´t know if it have had and accident before but it doesn´t seem like that, why did you ask so???<br><br>In reference to the Ps, i post it , just to search info for future clutch upgrades im my nearly future swift, just don´t want to lose time on silly things, just everything from the begining.<br><br>Still don´t know if keeping some money for even more performance parts if buying a cheaper mk2 or taking a 93 -96 mk3 for a little bit more, in comparation with Canada, here , a mk2 costs 2500-3250 canadian $ and mk3 costs from 3500 to 5000 canadian $, what do you think????'<br><br> <p></p><i></i>

I<br><br>>It also seems to sound louder it you through a hill or something like a ramp. the shifting seems still ok. will a >close look the movement of the entrance of the cv - shafts work??????<br><br>Well that sounds like what a couple of the ones I had did, shifted good, but made a noise. If you put the clutch pedal all the way in and it still makes the noise (and the pedal freeplay is properly adjusted), then it is probably a transmission noise. In which case, you probably wouldn't be able to see any movement on the shafts. <br><br><br>>He bought it with 50.000 miles, don´t know if it have had and accident before but it doesn´t seem like that, why did you ask so???<br><br>I asked because I think every used tranny I had that was from a Swift that had been a bad accident, died within 5000kms of use. I think it loosens some parts when it's hit (this is just a theory of mine though).<br><br>>In reference to the Ps, i post it , just to search info for future clutch upgrades im my nearly future swift, just >don´t want to lose time on silly things, just everything from the begining.<br><br>I understand. I have always used one as it makes things easier and it is cheap to buy as well. Besides, over here if you buy a replacement clutch it comes as a 'kit'. Which includes the release bearing, alignment tool, and the clutch and pressure plate. Although, I imagine with a performance clutch you would have to buy everything seperately.<br><br>>Still don´t know if keeping some money for even more performance parts if buying a cheaper mk2 or taking a >93 -96 mk3 for a little bit more, in comparation with Canada, here , a mk2 costs 2500-3250 >canadian $ and mk3 costs from 3500 to 5000 canadian $, what do you think????'<br><br>I would just look for a MK2 or save the money for more performance parts. <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br><br> <p><br><a href="http://www.teamswift.net"><img src="http://members.home.net/2832075173/pics/Swiftafter1c.jpg"></a></img><br>Kyle Jones <b>1989 Suzuki Swift GTi</b><br>Your friendly TeamSwift Op.</p><i></i>
