Re: Sweaty gearbox....Should I get valium?
I've got a gearbox that on the outside is oily, dirty, gritty, sweaty looking and partly covered in emulsion and lubricants. It has been like this since 56k miles (when I bought the car). Car is now on 75k. There was a leak, but this seems to have stopped (tighten bolts and add lots of araldite to the loctite seam). Some of the lubricant comes from using lithium spray to overcome the notchy gearchange.
