View Full Version : Who Knows Their Stuff???

okay so i picked up my 98 formula m6 and i have a couple concerns... any help would be apperciated...

1. i have a click when i put light pressure on the brakes and then remove my foot... but heres the weird thing, it will happen once in a while when i clutch (my first thought was the slave but theres no way to explain the brake occurance) and every once in a while while driving, i checked to see if anything was loose and theres not... any ideas??? (its one single click)

2. the more concerning matter.. my third gear is all jacked off... 95% of the time i shift into 3rd, what i thought was the gate will kick the shifter out! i can fell and hear something tap it out. if i do get it into 3rd as soon as give it a little gas it will kick out again!!!! i was hoping somehow cags was responsible but i just disabled the cags last night and im getting the same prob.

i plan to mod the car over the winter (rear end, ls7 clutch, port tb, maybe a ported head mild cam set up, long tubes,) but i would like to identify any suspension tranny damage now

You need a rebuild. Your 3-4 shift fork is probably bent. It is quite common if you check out the manual tranny section. Contact SixSpeedsInc. They are a sponsor here, and definately "know their stuff."

There are some guys here that have forgotten more about LSXs than you and I will ever know. Seriously, read some of the shit on the advanced forum :eek2:

would the 3-4 shift fork affect 4th gear as well because 4th is really smooth.
btw the car has 73k on it

it could be anything in the tranny. just sounds like you need a all around rebuild. Popping out of gear a lot is NEVER a good thing and should be addressed before you throw anymore power at it.
