Crunching

6 posts in this topic

Own a 89 XF ute. 6, with a 5spd floor shift. Without having someone charge me through the nose to split the box from the donk.. I am getting a crunching when shifting and it wont allow me to change downwards (5 to 4, 4 to 3, 3 to 2). Have checked clutch fork on side of box and seems tight.

Question is? Is this the sounds of the box that is gone or is a clutch kit in order..

what oil is in the gearbox? 

it takes transmission fluid, not gearbox oil. 

 

if you can select reverse easy when stopped, then i don't think it's clutch related. 

 

i would change the oil, transmission fluid most take, but look it up to be sure.
