Hey everybody I have read this forum on my friends name before but the time has come I need to ask a question of my own. I have a 1995 Dodge 2500, 5 speed. I got the truck from a friend, all nice and lifted on 38.5's and everything was peachy until about 2 months ago. I was driving the truck when I heard a horrific grinding noise in 1st gear. I had already let the clutch out and was driving when it started this crazy grind sound. The noise sounded as if I was trying to get it into gear or something but like I said I was already in gear. As it sits the truck will do this grind noise crap in 1st gear, 2nd gear, 3rd gear..and 4th and 5th but not so drawn out in 4th/5th. It sounds like it cant catch a gear or something and its very loud. The truck drives normal while it does this grinding noise. If I let off the gas while its grinding away it will stop. But sometimes once back on the gas it will start to make the noise again. If I put in the clutch in while its making the noise it will stop. It will also stop if I mash the gas once it begins to grind. It will carry this grinding noise for a mile if once it starts I do nothing but keep on the gas the same. I was for sure thinking that my trans was taking a crap on me but my friend thinks its not the case. However I can FEEL it in the trans. But the kicker is when I put the truck in 4wd it doesnt do it. I can shift and its all good. The 4th gear synchro in the trans is already shot. I have to make the 3-->4th gear shift in like a 3 mississippi count. But thats nothing compared to this noise it makes. WTF is the problem anybody heard of this? I have been driving the truck around like this for way too long and I'm stumped. All replies very much appreciated!!
