I have a 2002 WRX with 160K miles on it. The transmission is original, and I have used Redline MT90 every 35K miles since the first change. Also, I have a Kartboy short shifter and front bushing kit, but I do NOT have the rear bushing. I have used this setup for about 150K+ miles. A couple of days ago, I developed a rattle/buzzing noise in 3rd gear. I hoped that it was the linkage contacting the metal frame ring around the inside of the shifter. I filed down some more on the metal frame, but it made no change to the noise. As far as I can tell, the sound only happens in 3rd and 4th gears. If I hold the shifter to either side (while in gear) the sound goes away.
Any idea as to what might be causing this sound?
Thank you so much in advance!
