Well, you could ask anyone that knows me and they will tell you im just a tad rough on my cars.. and i think now is when im realizing this..
I finished droppin the trans today (5spd)... and the F*cker looks like sum1 shot it with a 44 mag in 2 spots.. theres 2 humongous holes in the housing, and there was a gear just sitting there when i took it out.... well its hard to describe in words,, just look...

Here i am after finishing

My sentra did something like that , when it blew it shot ball bearings stright out the case , leaving 7 holes the size of BB's...

All because Jiffy Lube filled it with ATF insated of the factory recomended 90 weight

yeah, i took that gear i had in my hand in that pic and its now hangin from the rear view in there lol... thats what speedshiftin does to a tranny i guess. But i need this car, gas is $2.39 per gallon for premium for the caddys, and 35mpg on regular sounds pretty damn good to me right! i pick up the tranny monday, $175 at the boneyard. 36k on it, then i have to worry bout my clickin lifters lol! oh yeah, and the complete cat-back exhaust its gonna need since its rotted out

nope didnt sue , got a tranny for it fromt he junkyard for 300 bucks , but i went thru 3 of them to get the right one as they kept giving me ones out of 86 sentras , they bolt all the way up till you go to put the last motor mount in and then SUCKER!!!! ...i told i had it in and out 6 times , 4 to get the right tranny , once of a pressure plate failure (thanks napa) and one for a throw out bearing failure (thanks again napa)

know what napa stands for ? Need Another Part As$hole

Well, i had the car parked in the driveway for a week, and i decided to bring it to the backyard, change the oil, wash it, you know.. the usual monthly thing, and it got to the yard fine, stuck it in reverse and there was nothin there, so i kept tryin 1st and reverse to see if it would catch, and after a few tries it got stuck in reverse. even with the car off it wouldnt come out of reverse, then i started it one day, tried to pull it out of reverse, and it pulled out, then i heard parts flyin around like all hell and that was the end of it, if i were to stick it in 4th and dump the clutch my speedo would run up to 45mph lol, and go up as i revved ! i was teachin a friend to drive stick b4 it went, but he didnt abuse it, he just stalled a few times, but i guess its my fault for constantly speed shifting and slamming into 2nd to make it chirp.. all well, i got the tranny, just waitin for a warm day to get it in
