Rust Free 84 Wagon Score But It Need Some Attention In The Trans Dept. Helppp????
Posted 21 October 2003 - 07:48 PM
1st question. The Trans shifts smooth when the car is not in motion, BUT when the car is in motion I have to force it some what into first gear and I hear a grinding noise...What do you think it is and how to fix???
2nd question. When I ever so slightly press on the gas pedal and then release it quickly I hear a clonking noise from the front. Do you guys think its a motor mount or somethin??
Thanks Everyone in advance for your replys... Joe

Did you find this locally, I haven't seen an EA81 Wagon around here for a long time. And rust free!!! I guess it can't be local.
Are you going to take it to the PB meet this weekend to show it off?
Can't wait to see it.
Sorry, but I can't answer your questions.

2nd answer. Does sound like bad motor mount. Easy way to check is to place jack under oil pan, with a block of wood between pan and jack. Raise jack up untill you contact pan, then try lifting engine slightly, repeat -slightly- don't force it up, while watching the mounts for un-wanted movement. Usually, you can spot a bad mount without using a jack, but it helps to find the weak ones.
Would also give the pitching stopper link a good looking over. About all I can think of right now.

Or just don't put it in first while moving - you shouldn't really have to anyway.

1st thing - Definitely a clutch adjustment problem like Tom said. TIP - Don't shift into first while your moving like GD said.
2nd think - Noise could be motor mount like Tom said, also check pitching stopper, basic soundness of front end, and axles.
3RD and most importantly - don't let ANYONE tell you there are no rust free 84 wagons in PA - you saw mine.....it's from PA all its life.
Lemme know if you need anything and how about some pics???

Oh I had a trans shop tell me to drain the gear oil and then put in one quart of ATF and then fill the rest with 80w90 gear oil and this might solve the problem... what do you guys think?????????? I have not tried the clutch adjustment yet but my friend is gonna try it tuesday since he is off work... Joe
