Ok so my trans has been messed up for about a month and im pretty sure its the 3rd gear synchro. I can still use 3rd if i let the rpms drop so its not a huge inconvience. But Does anyone know how long my trans can last until it needs to be replaced?? I'm hoping it can last about 5 months until i have the funds to buy a remanufactured one. Thanks!

this all depends of bad the synchros are. could last 5 months could last 5 days. I let mine go until i lost 3rd all together. lasted a couple months with easy driving and skipping 3rd. My suggestion is to fix it as soon as you can or you will loose it all together.

lose just 3rd gear. it will get bad enough to where you cant even get it in gear, and if you do it will throw it right out.

Buy my 3650!

Haha, seriously though I'd take Willy's advice and either replace it now or get it fixed right away. You shouldn't lose your whole trans, but who knows... stranger stuff has happened. For now, skip third gear as much as you can.
