Also Sometimes It would go in second kinda hard. (like notchy) Well today it started grinding when shifting in to 5th. With the track day coming up I think i may just run it like this and have the dealer look at it after....

but what do you guys all think. Anyone else have any of these problems?

Also have a note worthy clunk when you transition from on to off gas or off to on gas at low speeds in first or second.
tomster,

Sorry to hear about those issues, but once you are ready to take it to the dealer or need the appointment scheduled, please let me know. I'd like to create a case for you in our system and help monitor this for you.

All the best,

William R.

Manual transmission issues zl1

Is it normal to occasionally hear noises from the transmission, if so what is considered normal.The transmission seems to make a noise similar to differential chatter in 1-2-3 gear. shifting also feels notchy or hesitant. All seems to come back to normal if i turn the car off and on again or if I do long rides in 5 or 6th gear. this was present from day one of ownership. Does anyone have similar experience.

they did the same thing with my 08 vette. Second gear syncro failed at low miles. It is basically a supplier issue at the point if the dealer opened the tranny tremec would not get the propper feedback. One of the GM engineers called me at one point just wanted to know how the car was driven and such.

I'm searching for a resolution on this one as well. It seems to hit the "gate once every 10 or 15 shifts going from 2nd to 3rd"
