Hey Guys, want to get your input here. Have any of you had this or know of it? I always park my car in exactly the same postion in my garage, and as you can see, the garage stays pretty clean. I noticed today when I pulled it out to sweep that there is a grease like substance about where there tranny is. I've put in a couple pics. Any ideas on what it might be or if this is something normal that you've experienced would be great help. Thanks

That would be my guess.

I few tranny's made it to the line that were made in China. Unforunately they looked just like Aluminum, but in fact they are finding out that they are compressed rock powder and they are slowly deteriorating. I would just take it in for a check and explain this to your service manager and ask if there is a TSB on the CRT's. (China Rock Tranny's) :D

The clutch dust falls out of the slot in the tranny casing. Here is my old one. Ther Ceramic clutch plate dust is normal.



Here is the new one. You can see the slot good in this Pic.

The dust also can come out of the slot at the edge of the bell housing. If you look in my pic, you will see the dust on the floor by the slot.

Nice to have your car all broke in after a year get a new tranny and clutch.

How's she running ? I only have 45 miles on my new set up! I can't wait to start using her. I have my new bra on too, so I will be taking some trips in my car this summer.
