Squeaking when shifting.

I am taking the car in tomorrow for check up on that super annoying noise (Belt Tensioner/Drive Belt). But I was just wondering, when I shift back, like from 1st to 2nd, from 3rd to 4th, and from 5th to 6th. Basically, whenever the shifter is being pulled back, I can hear this squeaking noise. Is this normal? Should I get it checked?

i believe it's your shifter links. They need to be greased with lithium grease.

O nah, my belt is jacked up for sure. But I just noticed another type of squeaking. This is when the car is turned off and me just testing out the shifter.

O, this is a DIY kind of job right? What/where exactly do I grease? And can I get the grease from Kragen?

Here is what you need to do:

Open he engine bay, take out the airbox have a friend shift through the gears so you can see all the moving parts.

Grease up the bushings/clips that are attached to the shift linkages with lithium grease (not the spray, buy the tube)

Grease it up GENEROUSLY. I'll try to find a pic to post.

you can also grease the shift ball (on the shifter itself) and the other moving parts of the shifter assembly.

take out the center console...everything should be visible from that vantage point thumbsup

and as jameson (diablogts) said..use lithium grease for best results

oas, you gotta grease the brass linkage points inside the engine.

have a friend shift gears with the airbox removed, you will see exactly what I mean thumbsup
