inquisitive is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)
I have some noises coming from the the gear box, I don't know if it means I need a new tranny or just some more gear oil in there.

Here is the dilemna, I am driving an '86 535i with manual transmission. When I start my car with clutch engaged there is no noise other than the engine. Now once I put it in first gear and start to drive away I get this slight grinding sound. Its not a gut wrenching "oh I didn't put the clutch in to shift" sound but rather a rattling like its not all tight and taught down there. Ok the funny thing is that this only happens in 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear.

I don't know if this means I need a new tranny or I can remedy this by putting some gear oil in the transmission. Does anyone have any ideas? Please let me know.
