I've had something F'ed up with my tranny for a while now. My 3rd gear is to the left of center and there is a lot of play when it is in gear. I can feel a minor pop when it is in gear and I move the shifter side-to-side. I'm trying to figure out what might be the issue and I'm hoping that some tranny internal diagrams might help.

BTW, I checked the shifter and linkages. The play also exists on the shaft on the back of the tranny. So, what I'm feeling in the stick is actually happening on the tranny. Just like the stick, the gear selector shaft on the back of the tranny has to be slightly rotated for the tranny to shift into third. This makes 4-3 downshifts very difficult. :(

Thanks.

Thanks guys. Wow...Doesn't really seem like a DIY type of thing. ;)

Didn't look in the info forum because I don't ever remember anyone discussing 5spd rebuilds.

Had another issue last night. I was going down a steep incline letting the car engine brake in 1st. It popped out of gear. :icon_eek:
