I have a 2008 Honda Accord K24Z3 with the 5-Speed Manual (178k miles), and I’ve got actually two questions/problems.
First; When I start up my car clutch+key turn, if I keep my foot on the clutch even a split second after engine turns over it makes a horrible screeching sound, I have found a couple possibilities online but it only happens on startup, it’s definitely not the engine, FYI it’s got 178k miles on it, I’m also going to swap out the transmission fluid with new Genuine Honda MTF, to see.
Second problem; my actual shifter doesn’t want to go into gear unless I bang my hand on it into first, it’s now also been making a loud metallic grinding noise when it actually engages the gears (foot completely on clutch too), I have driven it recently and it shifts perfectly fine and on time when actually driving, I’m also a bit gentle on the shifts too, just so it doesn’t wear faster.
Any help would be very appreciated.
Thanks guys and gals. 🙂
