Hiya,

I have a 1997 1.8L manual 5 speed tranny. I have qwned the car about 8 years, and it only has 52k miles. Anyways I have been hearing a ticking noise, it is not in synch with the engine. It only happens when the engine is reved up, at idle or just above it is fine. I am positive its the transmission. I think it might be the spider gear (not sure if thats the right name).

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Rob
