C .. L .. U .. N .. K !!

Arrghhhhhh
i think my auto's had it.
Everytime i put it in Reverse.. it makes a loud clunking noise! im told its just a dirty oil filter...???
the gear changes are pretty ruff too... but they dont slip or anything.
Time for a new gearbox huh?.. or is there something i can do?

Hemmm guess ill start saving up for a manual conversion while im at it.

AhahHAhaha Yeh i've always wanted a manual.
I'll get my mechanic to take a look anyways.
hope i dont need a new gearbox.. i've been ready told i need a new diff.. *Laughs*.. im still 18 so u could imagine the tyre marks around my area!
I guess pleasure has its consequences.
Oh i wanna purchase an LSD diff (that of the xr series and ghia).. bolt straight on would it? (dont know much about these things)

Thnx for your help guys.
