1st to 2nd clonky and whiny D-4D

PostPosted by NickB75 » Mon Jul 03, 2017 3:32 pm

I've noticed that the gearbox 1st to 2nd can sometimes be a bit clunky or grind occasionally, 3rd-6th are good through.
Also the gearbox is quite whiney in 1st and 2nd again 3rd onwards are fine.

You've not got any details in your signature or profile but if you are talking about the earlier 4.3s then yes, they can be notchy. If you take your time just in those lower gears they are usually acceptable.

Fine adjustment of the cables can help loads plus changing the gearbox transfer box and diff can also help. All the 4.3 manual boxes are notchy but can be improved.

Haha I figured that he meant oil. I've noticed if I don't rush my changes it's ok. I did go from a pretty fresh Swift Sport,so i drove it quite hard.
I'll mention to the dealer tomorrow about whine and gearshifts,they have my car for a week,while I have a loan of a new Yaris 1.5 I'm going to be adding 700+ miles to it, I've warned them.

I've updated my profile Anchorman, thanks for the prompt :D
