Hows it going ppl, I got a problem and i am not 100% sure what it is.
when i start my 5l vr ss 5sp manual it runs perfect, but every now and then theres this clunking noise in neutral like theres loose bolts rattling around in the flywheel area....also, when changing down from 4th to 3rd greas from 75km/h and over its grinds like my foot isnt even on the clutch properly, there is no slipping or any indication that the clutch is worn so this is very puzzling. Im guessing its gonna cost alot to fix and i dont really want to get a mechanics opinion because i just dont trust em...they will likley say its the gearbox and i really dont want to hear that.
i would really appreciate some input on this one, as i have no idea.
thanks in advanced
