so i took her in this morning and i get a call saying i cracked the bellhousing and that it wasnt going to be warrenteed. so it was going to cost me around 1300 dollars. I'm like HOLY CRAP, so i was like ok, i guess i have no choice :banghead: .......but then they called me back saying the service manager looked at it saying it shouldnt have happened and that it will be warrenteed. I was like, wow, thank you lord! so, I guess thats my big christmas present. a new transmission. I'm so happy!:cloud9: ...
i think im going to treat her like a baby now:hide:

UMMM, have you run anything over no matter how slight you thought it was?? has the trans been out for any reason. ie clutch?? and what made you bring it in?? did u hear a noise?? some more info would be nice.

yeah, refer to the thread posted in the last post. i've never had the tranny removed or anything done. theres 21,300 miles on the car..i've had to replace two rear ends. and then i have the UUC shifter...thats all. i'm begining to think i suck at driving stick.lol:duh:

and btw, drift caddy, ur dado right? ....ive seen that teckedemics video a million times ..the one where you drive the orange lambo and reck the infiniti suv in the desert., gotta say its pretty sweet. nice work. :bows:

idk how a high speed run could damage the bellhousing, i guess they might find more damage once they tear things apart.

It could be a lot of things. If something came loose in the tranny at high speed, something's got to give.....

Sorry bout your car.

First bell housing I have heard of that went south.:eek:

Sounds like you have a great service dept.:thumbsup:

I would find out what the service manger and the tech like to drink.
