Hi I'm Dave, and I just picked up an 02 Subaru WRX sedan. I had owned a S13 240sx and a S14 240sx. Yes I love them 240sx. Since I've never owned a WRX before, I'm not sure if my problem is "normal" or not.
When I quickly shift from neutral to 1st gear, it makes this "clonking" sound (not grinding), like if you're waiting on a red light and it just turned green type of shifting speed. If i clutch and wait about 2 seconds (letting the tranny slows down a bit)and guide it into first, the clonking noise won't be there. Is this normal on WRXs?
To me it sounds like a sycronizer is being wacky. One of my friend said change the tranny fluid first. What is ya'll take on this? Thanks a bunch.
