    my fifth gear

    ok im kinda new here so sorry if i mess this up.
    but i got an 04 wrx with about 65k miles.
    When shifting from 4th to 5th at higher speeds my 5th gear grinds for like a split second and then drops in.
    when at lower speeds it drops in perfect with no grind.
    i was just wandering if i just change my transmision fluid that it will help the problem? or is it something more?

    Wrx

    Im have the same problem with my tranny. Its your synchro's. You could change the fluid, but the will only cover it for awhile.

    If it is the synchro that won't help. If you double clutch it shouldn't grind, but the only way to fix it would be a new synchro. I think.
