Q: Scraping noise shifting gears

asked by on

I started having transmission problems when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear or from 3rd down to 2nd gear. 2nd would make a scraping noise. It usually happened at higher rpms above 4500 to 5000. I wasn’t aggressively shifting either. Then I did a test drive with the dealership and they replaced the transmission. It helped but the problem started right back up again. I have had experience driving manual transmissions, too. Do you have any ideas or suggestions on this?
