HELP!! 6sp Manual Growling

I have a 2001 F350 PSD with a 6 speed manual. 133,000 miles. I have noticed a growling noise in all gears except 4th...even reverse...well...I haven't tried granny low...but it growls in all others but 4th...under load. It only growls under load...any ideas?


Thanx,


Mac

What kind of load is it under? Have you checked/ changed the fluid in the tranny? If you do drain the fluid, drain it into a clean pan & look for metal shavings

It growls under any load...checked fluid level...it was good with no shavings on the magnet on the filler plug...planning on draining the fluid tomorrow to see if I find anything there...

possibly th input shaft bearing on the mainshaft ,the reason it gets quiet in 4th is due to that is direct drive ,gears and shafts turning smae speed so it doesnt make noise

Is that a major repair? I realize that the tranny will have to come out, but beyond that...would you suggest repair or replacement with a rebuilt?

that is definitly a major repair , not for the backyard man, the bad part about the zf is the parts are high , so it may be cheaper to replace it , if it isnt that bad , can get it fixed reasonable , the only way to know is to get it out , tear it down and take a good look at it , get some one that knows what there looking at look at it , and determine from there
