yes i got that problem too i just take my foot off the gas around 5000rpm automatics from that run have a tendency to leak internally, so the car thinks it's shifting 2 gears at once, keep the fluid up, drive it till it dies, then get a stickshift.

I assume you are referring to a manual transmission. Grinding while changing gears is an indication of a synchronizer going bad. Until you get it fixed, try double clutching when shifting.

Sounds like the synchros are failing. Usually a time consuming fix for a professional. Estimate about $1000.00 for a repair if that's the problem. Grinding in all but 4th and 5th is an indication of a bad input shaft bearing

I have recently bought a Citroen Synergy 1.9td when you shift to second gear it makes noise but shifting to other gears are normal can you tell you what is wrong?

....The Citroen, as do so many others, employ in the standard transmitions a group of fingers, if you will called "syncronizers" They are what help the transmition to traverse the gears smoothly. (moving from one gear to the other) they help insure that the gears have at least one tooth in alignment with the tooth of the other so you don't get grinding or premature wear on the gears. The sounds you seem to be getting are that of a syncronizer out of "Sync" Some times this works it self out, and the problem will subside, in more drastic cases, the syncs may need replacing.

Why does my 1994 Nissan Pathfinder 4 wheel drive auto hub makes grinding noise after shifting from reverse to drive automatic transmission?

The transmission on the 1994 Nissan Pathfinder may need to have a fluid flush. Dirty fluid will cause the gears to shift hard when transitioning from place to place.
