Re: How to prevent the 2nd gear from going bad?
How many miles on it? I've changed my whole tranny to one from a 05', drops right in. Some get lucky and it doesn't happen to them, but most I've read about and seen personally have it eventually fail.
When they went FI in 03' they also fixed the issue by switching to 5 dogs instead of 3, and if you look at them close enough they are slightly back cut so when you nail the gas, they tend to want to pull together rather than slip apart.
