At least yours is driveable. I've been without my car for more days than I've had it home. Stupid oil leak.

I'm getting a rattle in 2nd and 4th and it seems that something is loose by the shifter since I can tug it back towards me when it rattles and it goes away. Is this what happened to you? If so, thanks for posting

shifter rattle shifter boot

My shifter rattle was fixed a few days ago, shifter handle part #92176323 was replaced. Great results,rattle is gone ,shifter throws are a little cleaner, but my boot was ripped also. Just what I wanted to see. Service rep was very good about ordering a new boot. Time frame for replacement is about 1 week.

Do a search on ls1gto.com because I remember reading a thread of someone putting on a new knob.

I also have that 2700rpm rattle from the shifter. Goes away if I hold on to the shifter knob tightly, and really only does it before it's warmed up. I was hoping it would just go away by itself - maybe I'll have them take a look at it. I just hate having work done if I can avoid it, seems they always mess something else up.

I've had the same annoying rattle since I bought the car. Thanks for the post. Will bring to dealer next week if snow isn't too bad.

Also... I get this strange faint whiney noise when it's cold (below 0) when going into reverse. Car is warm but still have the noise. Has anyone else had this problem?

Thanks,
Vince

I haven't seen an internal view of the M6 transmission but if the reverse gear has straight-cut teeth, like reverse on most cars, there will be a bit of a whine compared to the forward gears, more noticeable with harder acceleration.
