KWMF sold his truck and bought an automatic to get rid of his whine
I tore the tranny apart on mine and replaced all the bearings exc. the 1-2-3 needle bearings. The bearing under 5th was pretty loose compared to the new one. That was over 2000 miles ago... tranny still whines in 5th, shifter still turns into a Sybian in 5th, so I gave up on it.
Besides I have a new problem to bother myself with. Finally developed the 35 mph vibe that goes away in 4wd. Hooray... thank goodness for ECGS's ingenuity on that one. Oh, and a rear speaker blew itself apart yesterday
Can't decide which is the best way to fix this thing, between Honda and Subaru. I gotta say that new 1.8L AWD HR-V with the CVT is mighty tempting to me every time an issue crops up in this truck, considering how much I loved driving the Fit.
