Move took longer than planned, plus without work for sometime. Things are finally settling down, except for the car.

Some of you may know about the engine replacement done back in March on my car. After that there were some odd noises that I thought may have been new engine break in and possibly a new crank getting "familiar" with a used trans input and clutch point. Well, get up here and i start getting a whine in 3rd n esp 4th gear under power. Then it starts kicking me out of third gear when downshifting. SO i decide to replace the trans fluid even tho i'd used full syn at 30k and was now 71k. The attached picture shows ALL that came out of the trans.
Attached File  IMG_20130808_133528.jpg ( 1.42MB ) Number of downloads: 2

So I take it to the local dealer. They didnt even seem to care about the bottle of fluid but instead tried citing the Tib wheels, hubs and brakes as failure for worn out trans bearings (even tho they never even looked inside the trans nor took the car around the block). That is what went on the paper, but what they told me personally, was A. You serviced it yourself (even tho i had the old fluid and receipt for new fluids), and B. It wasnt our mistake so no warranty work. I finally manage to get ahold of the service manager at Cocoa where the engine was serviced, but they insist that they dont mess with the trans and take the engine out the top. So at no point would the tech have needed to empty nor fill the trans according to the manager. Which leaves me to wonder how I have trans issues AFTER the engine swap but not before (sabotage? tech oversight?)

So it looks like I will be keeping Hunter and sourcing a low mileage trans, Spec clutch kit, and chromoly flywheel. All that would only be a couple months of new car payments and I'd have a nearly new drivetrain (new short block, clutch, flywheel, and lightly used trans) And I have been getting better mileage up here (avg in the 27-29mpg range since July despite very lil in 55mph+ hwy speeds) I can't in good conscience trade her in with the issues she has right now. And I'm thinking I'd rather add a motorbike or small rwd vert.

thats bullshit. all the engines i've pulled out of FWD cars, i always drain the fluid. otherwise if you tip the trans it all drains out of the axle holes!

When the tranny went out in my car last year we changed the tranny fluid thinking that could possibly be the problem and that's exactly what mine looked like.

Damn dude, that sucks! Hopefully you'll find a replacement quick and cheap!

Somethings you need to do yourself if you want them to be done right.

Glad you're keeping her!

RPW: Thats what they are trying to say they didnt do by unbolting the engine and leaving the trans in place. Unfortunately, its their word against mine at this point and i wasnt there observing the process.

Vinnie: Thats how I usually am. I hate having tech working on my car cause I know I can do a better job, esp if I had the tools.

Been on the comp, but away from the site moping about the car. Dont want to risk a spirited drive or going far away in Hunter and risk the trans crapping out. 3rd gear is fully dead, 4th requires careful engagement, so 1 n 2 get the most workout but drives the rpms higher hurting mpgs.......

However, picked up an 05 M/T with 41k on it yesterday for just under $400. Now to get CV axles, trans fluid, clutch kit, and timing belt kit. Have $500 available from tax return but still need another $200-300.

Dude that sucks. . . Do you have the paperwork from when the engine was replaced? Maybe by looking at the itemization on the bill you could tell if they did anything with the tranny?

In any case, good luck with replacing it!

Thanks Mitch, and i know but just lacking that enthusiasm.

Alex: Paperwork mentioned nothing but warranty new short block due to bent wrist pin.

Anywho, delaying timing belt till july (4yr mark from last time). Ordered rest of the parts today. Hopefully in 2-3 weeks, I'll have pics of the swap.

Forgot put in an update here. Took a couple of months Mar - May ( since i work 5 days a week) but I replaced the clutch, transmission, cv axles, and left front hub n control arm. Was def a steep learning curve in tackling this project.
