Rattle from gearbox/gearknob


I hoping for some help here, i been reading this forum and have on quistion.

My 156 1998 V6 - 85000 Miles on the clock has a rattle in third gear from 1000 revs to about 3000 revs then it is gone. I can feel it in my wooden gearknob. Its a small rattle but i can still fell it in the gearknob. Could it be the linkage on the gearbox, syncromesh, or what ? If i pust the gearlever af bit forward rattle whe in gear, the rattle ist not at high as normal ?

Byt the way im running on 10/60 Valvoline, is the Oil okay for the engine ?

Best regards

I'm so glad you wrote gear in there.

It's possibly a misfire or the lower rear engine mount, worst case is the Diff is about to go, but it may also only be a heavily worn clutch, without the car here it's hard to confirm.
