Well, Im gonna give this a try. Ive been told that this MIGHT be cuasing the grinding into 3rd and Id rather try this first then spend $750 on somehting i dont need.

So my question is, How do you bleed a clutch on an 02 GT and how do you adjust the cable?

you didn't just ask that. there is no bleeding involved. to adjust the cable pull the gas pedal toward you, it will click, do this until it stops clicking

If grinding in one specific gear and not others...synchros or clutch fork.

Your clutch has 1 basic job..transfer energy from engine to transmission

try changing your transmission fluid or checking to see if its low. ive heard alot of people say there hard shifts and grinds went away after changing to RP synthetic

why not just take it to a shop have them change the clutch and fluid and install and adjust your cable? unless you know how to do this yourself? you can get it done for around 400 labor, or just ask around there may be someone on here near you that would be willing to help you..

that would be my father... hes done it a few time times before.

He told me to try to bleed the clutch and adjust the cable and see if that helps any

should i just get the RP Synchromax or the ATF?
