    gearbox whining

    what could this be. when i shift quickly from 2nd to 3rd the gear leaver jerks quite badly out of 2nd but goes straight into 3rd fine.

    another worrying thing that happening is a whining noise when im in third from about 35 - 60 - when i push the gearstick forward it stops almost completely.

    the engines an x16xel from a mk3 not sure what the box is

    Might be a gear linkage problem.

    Get it checked out as soon as possible, this will ensure that a repair bill is minimum.

    Good Luck
