Lame!

Probably better just trade it in on a Jeep for Nicol to drive to Alaska smile


Well, I got the whole sub-frame back out and ready to drop the transmission in about 2 1/2 hours. It took me most of a day the first time. So, yes, it's a skill that I am honing. GREAT! dopeslap

There will be no trade in after my second attempt because it will be at the bottom of the Cumberland River.

I got the seal in there flush, I think?. I did have to start it at little angle to get it going. Maybe I damaged the inner lip? What sucks is the original seal was not leaking and I replaced it as preventative maintenance since they are known to fail north of 100k miles. ohboy Pure genius.

Hmmm - maybe it should get turned into a Jeep right away then...

Ha, I always worry about that. In this case, none. thumbsup Just a very slightly used Victor Reinz seal that looked to be installed correctly, yet leaked anyway?

Well, Nicol got to school this morning, so I assume it still has some oil. wink But it's only about 7 miles. If it seizes up on the way home and she turns it into a huge paperweight, I'll know I was wrong. In either case, problem solved. cuz

I’m going to have to see a photo of that to believe it. No way that V6 is going to fit in there.


Apparently they fit better in the back... laugh

If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour... you're gonna see some serious stuff...
