Default Tranny Problem? hard to put in any gear...

I have a 91 Stealth Base model....

when i shift into any gear it feels ruff and resists...sometimes it grinds.....even at a dead stop in first...this happens in all gears except
4th and 5th...i want to check to make shure there is sufficent gear oil...which bolt do i unscrew lol?


ON ANOTHER NOTE....
sometimes on decel i hear a strange noise like a bearing or something coming from the engine bay...like metal on metal i dare say?...but this noise comes and goes regardles of weather the clutch is in or not...

I've never looked at a FWD tranny, but hopefully it is similar to the AWD one. The drain plug is on the passenger side, and the fill plug is on the front, about 1/2 way up the tranny. Check and/or replace the fluid. Scroll about halfway down the page for a picture of the filler plug.

As for the engine noise you hear...does it do it idle, get louder as the RPM's rise?

it does it with speed, like inbetween certain speeds it can be heard like 5-10.....not with rpm...and it defanitly a tranny noise...not an engine noise...

thanks for the advice on the drain plug..

throw-out bearing going bad? I had the same problem in my truck. It make a sort grinding noise occasionally when rpm was just right and I was trying to shift. ONLY when I pressed the clutch. On my Stealth, I simple replaced the whole shooten match.

TheStealth is right on the locations of the drain and everything, easy to do just can get a little messy.

...other than being low on fluid, your shift fork could be bent or wearing out.

Normally, a throw-out bearing will clatter when the tranny is in neutral, or when the clutch is depressed.

check your clutch and adjust it. i have a feeling that all these things go bad (syncros and bearings and such) if your clutch is out of adjustment. mine was and all my syncros are starting to go bad.
