Discount on G6  partsWe have found a number of issues with this widely used Ford ZFS542 Tansmission. Bearing wear on the main shaft can cause a noise that is present in all gears at most engine RPM's. If you hear a whine at greater RPM's in 3rd and or 5th gear its possibly a input shaft failing. A noise in one gear that gets worse with speed can be caused by a chipped tooth in that gear. Shifting problem in the sifter stub can increase with use and time, suggest you replace your shifter with our easy to install Short Through Shifter Kit. Worn out synchronizer cones or syncro rings can cause grinding noise during shifting. Popping out of gear can be caused by damaged shift forks, or worn sliders. The most widley pointed out problem are problems with shfiting the 5th/reverse gear typically cause by high mileage. We offer a kit to fix this problem, kit includes Reverse Gear, 5th Rev Slider, Rev Ring and 5th Ring.
