At slower speeds when I engage the clutch in 1st or 2nd gear it sounds as if the transmission wants to fall out. It only does it in these 2 gears and at slower speeds. If I take off fast it doesn't do it. What would be a cause for the this? The car has 29k miles and all but about 400 put on by the previous owner so I don't know how much they beat on the car.

Is it a spinning/rattling type of noise?

If so, that's the noise my 05 had and soon after my car was not able to go into gear on the highway.
After stopping I got it into gear but then the 1&2 gear nosie was much worse.
I had the car towed at that point.

My trans is now out getting a Level V rebuild

& all new close ratio gears. :cloud9:

These RPM guys know the T56 like the back of their hands and are reputed to do amazing work.
We'll see what happens. :yup:

Interestingly my 04 never had any problems and it has 4 times the miles of the 05.
Damn that previous 05 owner. :thepan:
Although, it could have been a manufacturing defect considering the 05 only has <5K miles.

Its more like a clunking noise. Its loud and its rough when it does it. Its not in the entire drive line. I was thinking of maybe replacing the clutch and maybe having the transmission rebuilt.

Mine doesn't have a problem going into gear. If I take off normal I get the clunking. If I take off fast it doesn't do it.

Does it feel like a new clutch was installed like a chatter/studder? Also, does it do it on a down shift when you release the clutch?
It does it when I engage the clutch to go from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd. It makes the noise prior to the release of the clutch( while putting the car in gear ). It doesn't feel as if a new clutch has been installed.

I guess it should have been asked;
Do you have an aftermarket FW or still have the stock (heavy) Dual Mass FW?

As far as any aftermarket parts I couldn't say. I haven't done anything since I bought the car over a week ago.....at least for now.
