05 9-5 Aero, 2nd gear grinding and popping out plz help!!

I recently took my 05 9-5 Aero estate in for service(dec 12th) to replace a seal on the top of the transmission.

On my way home from picking the car up, I downshifted into 2nd gear to make a turn and it jumped right out into neutral. It also did the same thing the next morning, and has probably done it 5 times since ( this was about two weeks ago). This has never happened EVER before I took the car in for service.

I brought the car back to the shop, and asked if there was any adjustment on the linkage that could be done since I knew they had to take that off to get to the seal. They said no.

Can anyone shed some light on why this might be happening? (and Im hoping its not a syncro)

Starting last night (dec 24th), it grinds 8 out of 10 times going into or out of 2nd.
Is that still sounding like a linkage adjustment is needed??
Someone help please!

What a great effin christmas present!

I'm not positive this is the cause, but it certainly could be.

That would be amazing if it was the problem.

Thanks for the fast reply, at least I have a little more peace of mind now.

Happy Holidays!

I have been told there is nothing wrong with my torque mount.
And told apparently its a syncro.

Can anyone recommend a good synthetic gear oil to put in that might aid in the syncing of 2nd gear? I was told to put a 75w synthetic gearl oil in. GM syncromesh?

If the trans shifted fine before it was in for service than it is some thing they did while replacing the seal. They should worry about what it is you shouldn't I would give it back and and tell them to fix it, or they will not get payed.

They have already been paid. And they have already said that the popping out has nothing to do with anything they did.

But I think im going to go back anyway and give them an earful.

Bad syncro is my guess, however I would check the mounts first. This happend to my car with 5th gear this summer. I replaced with a used unit which you should be able to find for around $300. car-parts.com. I replaced the clutch while I was in there which costs more than the used transmission.

For the fluid run the factory. If there is a mechanical failure oil won't fix it

There is certainly shifter adjustment. Sounds like it is just not going deep enough into second. Does the shifter feel the same as before? The best indication that it never did it before now after it does.. Is this a Saab specialist shop or another way to put it; were there other saabs in the lot for service like yours?

Everyone keeps telling me there is no adjustment, and that its a syncro.

I brought it to Claude Hutchins at Tired Iron repair in Saquoit NY.
He is a Saab specialist, and I know he knows what hes talking about. Hes been in business for as long as I can remember.

I'm just going to get a new trans from goldwing and call it a day! I dont have the patience for this crap! LoL

I would listen to Nick if I were you jsut because soemone works on old Saabs does not mean he is good with the newer ones.

There is room to adjsut the shifter you need loosen the nut and have someone to push it way into the gear you are missing and tighen it down while its in gear.

Or buy a new trans and install it for a coupole of grand its your money...

This symptom is how mine started. Broken crush sleeve was the main culprit.

I definitely am in the dark here since my 9-5 is auto, but if Nick(GenuineSaab) says there is room for adjustment then there is. Plain and simple.

Not trying to knock your guy at all but I've had similar experiences with very well respected Saab Specialists. Sometimes they just don't know the newer cars like they do the old ones.

Well, the only reason I might agree the with syncro camp is because if it were a linkage adjustment it would also grind in 4th and reverse along with 2nd. Correct?

And since my homeboy at goldwing can get me a decent price on a trans, its less painful for me to admit to defeat and just go that route.

Claud is a good guy, but isn't his son James. Niether are the Russian knuckleheads he has working for him. Chances are Claud himself didn't even see the car.

Unfortunately my 2nd gear in my 9-3 transed 900 is doing the same.

I was standing right there talking to claude. But unfortunately this was after the original work had been done to replace the seal, which I am sure he wasnt around for.
