Unhappy let my girlfriend drive my truck!!!!!!

i derned sure won't do that again, that's for sure ! i told her to downshift from 5th to 4th and she tried to put it in reverse!!! it grinded for about 3 seconds before she actually heard me yelling, "PUT IT IN NEUTRAL!!!!!". so now if i don't put it in 1st gear before putting it in reverse it will pop out of reverse and grind on the gear until i put it back in neutral. does this mean my reverse synchronizer is out? what else could be wrong with it?

Re: let my girlfriend drive my truck!!!!!!

I had this happen on a Ranger one time. The synchros were "bound up" for lack of a better description.

I was stuck and shifting from 1st to R back and forth hard.

It would not even stay in R if I didn't hold it in, very tightly, and if I gave it too much throttle it would pop out.

One day in the driveway I coaxed and coaxed and coaxed it in reverse and it began to hold more and more throttle without popping out. Then it eventually went back to its old self.

I don't know if that will help you or not, but it fixed mine from popping out.

Good luck

Re: let my girlfriend drive my truck!!!!!!

Maybe I am lucky, wife does not want to drive my truck. She did once up in Big Bear, snowing, me with a dislocated shoulder, her driving home. I told her she needed to go slow in the turns because a pick up is light in the rear, not like a car. I kept telling her but she would not slow down, until we spun out. You can imagine I was quite angry in all my pain. Fortunitally we made it home. However I drove the last 30 miles of mounatin road to get home because I did not trust her. She has not driven my truck since by her own choosing.

Re: let my girlfriend drive my truck!!!!!!

Most reverse in manual transmissions have no sychros. They weren't made to shift from forward to reverse in motion-so no need to sychro. Might have lost some metal or burred the ends of the gear teeth. Hopefully they will mesh in time like gregrobs. They should if burred a little.

Re: let my girlfriend drive my truck!!!!!!

Sorry to hear about your truck travis, hope it straightens it self out.

I guess I'm lucky. My wife used to drive big gas company trucks during the summers in ohio working for her dads company. I still don't really like letting her drive it but I trust her. There's a total of about 3 people other than me that I have or would ever let drive my truck. My dad... used to drive semi's, my wife and one of my friends.
