    Burnout

    I was trying to do a burnout and the first time wheels started spinning then stopped and the car was gunnna turn off. Second attempt didnt get that far just went straight to turning off smoke came out but it wasnt the tires it was clutch. Third attempt wheels spun then car started turnin off. Heres how i did it i pushed the clutch in got it to 4 rpm then dumped it and held the break and tried getting the rpm up to five and kept turning off on me with the tcs off. Did i do something wrong. Oh and i have to jam it to get it into any gear. Doesnt wanna go into reverse at all unless i use force. How bad is the damages and if i let it sit for a lil will it go back to normal until i can find a clutch?

    If you have a bad rear main seal, you prob seized the clutch to the pressure plate or flywheel. That would explain the gear selection difficulty. You need a new clutch ASAP. Clutch was probably on the outs before ya did the burnout.

    I was in second gear the whole time by the way. I think the clutch was already bad i had problems with it b4. It would pop out of second gear sometimes did it a few times in third. Its rough shifting as is. Now i think i completly destroyed it. Could it be anything else besides the clutch?

    Your syncros may be bad. If so, then you will need another clutch and a trans rebuild/replacement...=$$$$

    If you are having it stick in a gear or finding it hard to get into a gear, that is normally a broken synchronizer key in the transmission.

    That's not cheap! Consists of pulling the transmission and rebuilding like the above said. OEM keys are stamped hollow metal. Aftermarket keys are solid.

    Honestly its not the first time i heard syncros ive heard that twice before when i mentioned the grinding and i was told they tend to be weak on the ws6. I dump it at 4 cause thats what i taught myself at. I noticed if i take traction off rev it to 3 dump it it spins the tires hit the brakes real quick with my foot still on the gas the car starts to turn off but if i go at 4 it stays on. Is there a reason for that? Thats true about the modding i dont have a wife but i have a girl who wont stop telling me stop spending money on the car.

    Well, that depends. Are you doing it yourself or paying someone to do it?

    If you are just buying the parts and know what you are doing, it will not be that expensive. If you are pulling the transmission, I would recommend upgrading some of the other components in there that tend to be weak also, such as your 3-4 shift fork that is aluminum. Get a steel one.

    I had mine totally rebuilt by RPM transmission. Their costs are listed on their website; level IV and level V upgrades.

    There are also other well-known reputable places to have the work done. Just for a transmission pull and re-install you could be looking at several hundred not including parts or install of parts.

    Keys are $60.

    A new fork would be an additional $50.

    I would do that since you'll already have the trans pulled. It's the next weakest link in the T56.

    Call a transmission shop and ask how much to replace them??

    If you're short on cash, quit doing 4K dumps or you will be replacing your rearend soon.
    They are weak.

    Good Luck
