Hello. I have a 1998 Dodge 3500 Diesel with a 5 speed manual transmission. The problem I have is it wants to grind going between 2nd and 3rd gear. If I wait long eneough between shifting it will go in smoothly. I can not down shift into 3rd from 4th at all. I have replaced the transmission and it seemed to work for 200 miles and bact to the grind. What else should I look at?
Thanks!

If the clutch is working properly, the most likely cause of grinding when shifting is worn or broken synchronizers in the transmission. Rebuilding the transmission is the only repair.

If that didn't solve the problem, make sure they check your clutch for proper operation.
