I think the gearbox in my 405 SRDT is on the way out. Changing the gear into 3rd and 4th is very inconsistent, sometimes not wanting to go into gear and then whining while in gear and other times going in smoothly and running silently. Also on the expressway I had to hold it into 5th gear to stop it jumping out. Can anyone please tell me it is a simple fix because I had planned to do an engine conversion on another car during the next 2 weeks I have off.
Realistically what is the best possible outcome?
I suppose the worst is to pull out the engine & g/box and get it rebuilt then put it all back in again. Maybe this time with Garret GT17 Turbo and a front mounted intercooler from a Volvo.
All in all i suppose I am going to have many 'character building' surprises.
