Trans broke at 2099 miles.

Myself, wife and kids were coming home from a cruise night last night. I took off from a light, shifted 1-2 and got on it in second, shifted 2-3 and it grinded and wouldn't go into gear. Let itZ roll in neutral for a few seconds pushed the clutch in and the shifter was stuck in neutral. It would not go into ANY gear. Onstar sent a flat bed and now it's at the dealer. I'm a bit dissapointed that a car with 2099 miles had this happen. My only mods are a roto fab cai, axle back, and pfadt lowering springs. I'm hoping this will be taken care of quickly and correctly.

Yeah we were 10 min from dealer and 15 min from home. I had enough momentum to get it up a hill and pulled off on a side road. Onstar was very helpful throughout.

We need a TSB for these transmissions. The Tremec in these Camaro's needs a make over.

Apparently I broke the 1-2 synchros. Can someone that knows trannys explain how I shifted 1-2 just fine but going 2-3 was when it locked me into neutral. Service writer said the tech said that this can/will happen when the 1-2 synchros go. They ordered the parts this morning and are hoping to have them by tomorrow morning. So far dealer has been great to work with.

Check with the dealer and see if they can order carbon fiber synchros, much more durable...we put them in my tranny, now up to 1-2, 2-3 and 3-4....helped mine tremendously, and thats in a slightly modified Camaro...ask them if they order them can you pay the difference.... Read all the threads on grinding gears and I'll bet in 90 percent of the cases, the synchros and or shift forks are the root of the evil...

I don't know the specifics, but I changed shift forks as well as a few other items and only paid 800 for parts for the whole thing...

except you have to keep in mind how many parts are made that go into these cars (and others). theres a failure rate on everything. there's also a fall-out rate with everything. sometimes bad parts slip thru the cracks.

They dont break very often at all.

The dealer will only use OEM parts under warranty. If you want to upgrade the synchros I highly doubt they will give you a warranty on it.

Very possibly true, but a friendly service manager with the correct understanding may go for it... Doesn't hurt to ask...
