I started getting some weird noises and a bad vibration from the manual transmission in my '95 XJ. When I'm accelerating, it sounds almost like gear teeth chattering. When I stop (clutch engaged) I get a thumping feeling in the stick and a clear thumping sound, again, it sounds like teeth chattering slowly.
I crawled under and noticed that the front of the rear drive line (ahead of the front u-joint) where it enters the rear of the tranny looks as if it has slipped out about 2 inches. There's also some play in the drive line. the U-joints seem ok, but I'm no transmission expert.
any suggestions for an honest tranny shop in vegas?
