I'm sorry but I just don't understand the description - "feels like driving in 3rd when I'm in 5th", yet is a "bit faster", but "ride doesn't feel smooth". It just doesn't make sense to me. Can we pin down the symptoms a little better, please?
My gearbox makes a slight whine in 3rd that's not there in the other gears. Is it perhaps a sound you're getting in 5th that you previously had in 3rd?
Or is there something loose/knocking in the suspension (dismantled to change the gearbox) that makes the ride less smooth?
