My 1991 Honda Accord grinds on third gear what could this mean and how can I fix it? enter image description here

1 Answer 1


It probably means that the synchro which meshes the third gear is bad or going bad. The only fix for this is a rebuild or finding a used replacement for a cheaper alternative.

    I agree, leaning hard towards the used replacement. After 23 years, I'd be surprised if it WASN'T grinding a little on at least one gear. Synchromesh is GOOD, but it's not wearproof. Aug 8, 2014 at 20:25
