Do I need a new gearbox?
Well, my car has finally died - right now it's sitting at a workshop and I've been quoted $4,000 AUD for a replacement selespeed gearbox. I'm told the pins have broken, or something similar and it's unfixable.
Basically, after a month of bad performance, when I tried to accelerate away in 1st, all I got was a hideous grinding noise and car shaking. Also quite a bit of oil was leaking from what appeared to be the top of my engine from under the cover.
Clearly there's a problem and I'm no mechanic, but is it a clear cut replacement job? If so, is anyone selling a gearbox on the cheap or can offer me some advice? Naturally before shelling out the cash to the mechanic, I want to explore all my options.
