    Mine went out with only around 5K on a brand new tranny. Won't happen again took it to tranny shop and for $700 got it rebuilt with hardened synchros, steel 1-2/3-4 forks, and bronze shift fork pads.

    Yeah my mechanic knocked off $100. $800 is about average for a good rebuild with aftermarket parts, $600 for a basic stock rebuild.

    how come i can go from 4 to 5 but not 6 to 5, is there more than one synchro, sorry if these questions are really trivial but i'm not the knowledgeable with trannys.

    well mine did about the same thing, except I couldn't always go from 4-5, but sometimes I could. it was a combination of synchro and shift fork pad. the stock shift fork pad is a cheap piece of plastic.

    what are you guys talking about? Where do you live??????? I had mine done under warranty, and the bill to GM was 3500 CND for fifth and reverse synchro, and the reverse gear itself. The shop I went to wanted more claiming that GM wasn't paying him for all the time he put into it. What is going on????
