I had my tranny overhauled and I'm not happy

Tell me what you think about this. I have a 97 f250 5-speed with 175k on it. I took it in to have the transmission overhauled because the syncros were shot and was making some noise in third, fourth and fifth. So now that I have it back, it still makes some noise in those 3 gears and the syncros, to me, still don’t slow down the gears enough to keep the shift from rubbing the teeth a little bit when I shift, even when it is warm. What does everyone think about that? Should I take it back to the guy to have him look at it or is that normal? Plus I had 4 bad injectors so I replaced all of them and I still have white smoke when I start the engine. I thought that replacing the injectors would pretty much eliminate the smoke? Please tell me what everyone thinks about this, good, bad or otherwise! Thanks

take the tranny back for sure. With new synchros it should like new. What kind of noise does it make in gear? Overhaul kits are usually bearings and synchros.

Just the same noise it made before the overhaul. The noise seems to be coming from the shifter, which still wiggles a little bit.

Take it back.Noise may be thier forever if the gears are worn and have a bad pattern in them.It wont hurt anything.Now the on the shifting problem it should shift like new.Did he tell you exactly what all he replaced?I build manuals pretty regular.Did you replace the clutch while you were thier.I cant tell you how many times I have chased a tranny problem and it turns out being what seemed to be a perfectly working clutch.Hope this helps

drain out some oil from the trans and make sure it is fresh and RED so you know that at least the unit has new fluid. maybe the mechanic drove it and felt like you would never know the difference? did you see it all apart?

Well I called the shop owner today and he insisted that I bring it in right away and that he would make sure that it was done correctly, even if it means putting in another overhaul kit. I was afraid that I wouldn't get that good of a response so I am impressed.
