Anyone experienced this?


I have a 1997 TJ SE 2.5l and I am experiencing grinding when going into 3rd gear and also when I downshift to any gear.
I changed my tranny fluid last month and put in non-synthetic Valvoline 75W-90 and an appropriate additive.
I recently put in a whole new clutch system
(slave, master, pressure plate, flywheel etc) 2 weeks ago and the grinding is still the same.
Sometimes I can't shift into 1st gear when in Neutral and I have to turn off the engine, engage then restart while in 1st gear.
Anyone experienced this?
Any suggestions?
Thanks.

Sounds like syncros, tried double clutching to see if it helps?

Yeah I've tried double clutching and it very enthusiastically double grinds.
My Synchros might be out. What would it cost to get that fixed?

Ha ha, thanks for the feedback. Well I wanna try changing out the oil. Which one exactly did you use?
5W-10 or 5W-20?
