Not having the opportunity to drive many of these cars aside from my own, I've wondered if anyone else has a gear (excluding reverse) that just seems more noisy than the others. For me it's 3rd. Its not so much a problem (I've had the car for four years and it runs great), it's more of a curiosity...

Have you changed gear oil and what do you use?
OK, I plead ignorant. tell me more about changing gear oil, although I don't know why only 3rd is effected...

The car also seems to lurch more in 3rd under throttle - just not as overall smooth as the others.

Jubu makes 3rd and 4th VERY apparent in my car.

Do you have the straigt cut or helicut ones? I thought there were several versions?

Check exhaust bracket for a crack it tends to resonate in a certain gear. Mine was 3rd.
