Re: Whos 4spd has died, and what did it do?
Mine is almost dead. Coming home from the grampians on the melbourne cup weekend it was slipping a bit in first gear, then you couldn't even feel it drop into second, but when it was in second it was like it was in neutral, then third gear came very harshly, slipped a bit in third, then only sometimes I had fourth, and when I didn't, it wouldn't get drive to the wheels until at least 2500 rpm. I was doing 110km/h at 3000rpm! Also I have no drive in reverse.
I took off the oil pan and found little bits of metal and heaps of metal shavings on the magnets in the oil pan, and the mechanics at work said the clutch is gone too. To find the problem the tranny would have to be pulled out, sent away, stripped and rebuilt, etc. Its cheaper to get a changeover auto, which is around $1450 I was told. So I'm putting in a manual instead :)
