2007 2.2DCi. Experiencing a crunch going from 2nd gear to 3rd. Feels like a synco problem?
Hi .
Your right on the issue ,yes this could well be the syncro rings
If you have to double clutch and it goes into gear a lot easier then this is a good sign of sycro ring issue.
There is a good oil out called Synchromesh Synthetic Manual Transmission Oil (MTF) this can in some cases help this cure the problem .
First you need to flush out the old fluid and then use this new fluid Synchromesh Synthetic Manual Transmission Oil (MTF).
I know one from Amsoil but not sure you have that in the UK you will have to check .
Worth trying this before you pay for a big repair as it does work .
in most cases .
