Loud noise when upshifting into 2nd or 3rd
« on: December 27, 2017, 02:58:41 pm »
Hey guys!

First of all, this is my first post in this forum and, unfortunately, it's about a possible issue. Nevertheless, I'd appreciate if someone, who maybe experienced this issue, could help.

Anyway, I bought a 2013 Punto Supersport two months ago. With almost 90k kms on the clock. Since then, the multiair module has been replaced (fortunately the dealership paid for it in full) but I'm having this issue with the gearbox.

So, sometimes, only when upshifting from 1st to 2nd or 2nd to 3rd, I hear a loud noise... Somewhat of a loud clunk not really like it's grinding but it definitely feels off. It's so loud, that it actually resonates if I have my windows open. And no, it's not the exhaust crackling :p

This only happens if my hand motion in the selector is fast; if I take my time and put some pressure on the gear knob it actually muffles it a bit.
The gear goes in smoothly regardless if it makes the noise or not.

I've noticed this also only happens at 2k-3k rpm. At higher rpms there's no noise or maybe the engine noise actually muffles it, no idea.

I'm going to change the tranny oil in the next month, since she's due for the 90k maintenance. I'll see if that solves it, but I will report it to my mechanic and see what he says. I was just wondering if any of you Punto mates had an issue like this.

Anyway, thanks!

    Hi, did you ever find out the reason for the noise or get it sorted?
