I recently bought my first honda car. Only problem I noticed is that sometimes the transmission will make what seems to me a "dry grinding or growling sound". Seems when I'm in 5th gear it never makes the noise. It doesn't make the noise at any particular rpm. It does make the noise in all first 4 gears, but not all the time. Please don't tell me my transmission is going! I changed out the transmission fluid last weekend, but it still makes the sound. I was concerned about the half shaft bearing on the drivers side, and was wondering if that might be the culprit? Doesn't seem to be bad by shaking it. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
