M6 problem's

Ok, Yesterday I go to back out of my driveway and the shifter starts grinding and kicks out of gear. I stop push clutch in and place it in reverse, ease off clutch, start backing and it does it again. Sounds horrible. It is under warranty, so I will take to the dealer first thing Monday. Just wondering if this is an isolated thing or if it is a problem with the gto ??? Oh, and second is difficult to shift to unless I'm at about 3g rpm's....

You weren't all the way in gear. Sometimes when the transmission's cold in the morning, it'll stop and feel "somewhat" like it's in gear when it's really not. When you let out the clutch and it go time, the stick'll kick back out.

What I do now is when I get "the feel" that it's not quite there, I keep forward pressure (lightly) on the stick and when you let the clutch out about an inch or two, it'll pop the rest of the way no problem. Finicky or what?

Now, I don't know for sure about your problem with second, but I had one similar. I found I was using too much left angle when I was shifting into second. Again, it's a technique thing. Although natural reaction when you're on the left-hand side of the shift pattern is to hold all the way left, this will cause the shifter to hang on the gate to second. Pull straight back from first and I hit it right every time.

That's the T56 for you, same thing in the WS6. It'll feel like it's in gear and give it some gas and *pop* it's back in neutral. There's nothing wrong, it's just a heavy duty tranny and takes some force, you'll get use to it.

As for second, I don't know what to say, maybe it's skip shift, or maybe you're trying to hard, just move it straight back it should go right in, don't force it left.

M6 problem update. Well it doesn't sound good. I took it to the Dealer first thing this morning. The Dealer called me about an hour after I dropped it off. They advised that they were going to have to take the tranny apart to locate the problem and that they had me a loaner ready.... I'll keep everyone informed as to what the problem turns out to be, so that if anyone has similar problem they can get it took care of...

Keep us updated!!!

Anyone had problems in the morning getting into gears? Sometimes 2nd is tough and today it would grind into 3rd or be very hard to get into third even w/ the clutch all the way down.


Car is an 06 w/ 1300 miles

Sometimes the T56 is a little tough to get into first. Just put it into any other gear -- as it will go -- bump the clutch a little -- and you'll be fine to go into first.

I just dropped mine at the dealer for the same problem. I have 7K miles on my 06 and it has done it ever since I bought it new. I'll keep you updated.
