I am looking at purchasing a 1994 D90 (3.9 liter) with 72K miles on it-- It seems to be in good condition for the year and miles, however when shifting into second gear it "grinds" slightly--
If I am very careful I can shift into second without a grind, however under normal driving and shifting, second is the only gear that does this? It also does not really "like" going into second when downshifting-- It will do it but does not do it easily--
Is this "normal" wear for a D90 with that many miles--
Clutch was replaced less than 10K miles ago and it works fine-
What is the fix and is it expensive?
Are there other things/quirks that I should "beware" of or look out for on this year and model?
Is the '95 or '97 with the 4.0 engine a much better vehicle? and should I concentrate my efforts on finding one of those instead?
