4th gear grinding??
So for some reason everytime I shift to 4th gear either up shift or downshift, it grinds gears. No matter how fast I'm going or how slow I try to shift. I did install the Cobb short shifter from my old sti and it may need adjusted. Other than it being too short, does anyone know what else the problem could be? It's only 4th gear

I had that problem once after changing my fluid to a cheap alternative. Changed back to the good stuff and it went away. Is your fluid due to be changed? What are you using now? When mine grinded it was in third. If I would move the shifter like I was going to go into fourth (not engage fourth though) before I shifted into third it would not grind. You may want to try a maneuver like that until you figure it out.

It could need changed, I just bought the car and has 42k miles. Taking it in next week to get an exhaust leak fixed, I'll have them look at it. Just want to make sure I don't need a tranny swap or anything lol
