What have we beat on lately-
1) Exhaust threads
2) Suspenssion threads
3) My MT82 sucks threads
4) Why does Marc follow JDos1 threads?
Can we PLEASE move on?
Seriously. If I had a dollar for every one of those threads, I wouldn't need the PowerBall.
This is just about what happened to mine. Had it a month, noticed a whine, took it to the dealership, took 2 weeks for them to hear the problem, said there wasn't a problem until I talked to the owner, took 2+ weeks to fix it, but now my new one seems to be going strong.LOL durable? That's funny!
I'm on my second MT82 and having issues again.
My first one whined from about 5,000 miles and only got worse, followed by a horrible case of notchy shifting until I took it to the dealer at ~21k miles. They tore it down, the synchros looked like **** and a couple of bearings were on their way out. They replaced it with a new transmission. I've got right at 20k miles on this one and a faint whine is starting to occur along with the notchy shifting, again. Took it back in about 1k miles ago for an oil leak and had them check it while it was there. They said that it was "normal" this time. We'll see how much less than normal it has to get before they do something about this second one. I've noticed its getting worse by the week, it's only a matter of time before they have to do something about this one too.
Do I wish I bought an auto? No.
Do I wish I had a Tremec? You bet I do and in the next few years I'll be doing a T56 magnum swap in it whenever I can actually afford it.
By the way, Marc likes "beating" dead live stock, if you know what I mean.
