I drained my transmission today after I put the fluid in 500 miles ago and found this:






How bad is it? (cringe)

Damn, that seems pretty bad... Oil should have a nice, clear amber color. Ouch!
Any problems driving it?

It really doesn't matter what it is, if that came out of my tranny, I would drop it and install a different one.

2nd has always been a bit rough going in, Shifiting has been getting less and less smooth and it tried to get stuck in gear once or twice this week.

so uh, think I can flush it a few times, and see how long it lasts while I shop for a new tranny?

ya man, drive it, just be easy, I drove mine for 10000 km's before I replaced it, and I was fuckin hard on it, near the end 2nd gear would pop out if I didn't hold it in, but all the other gears gave me no trouble! Flush it, drive it, but try not to waste too much time finding a new one, I have a feeling I had a miracle tranny...

Any special procedure to flushing? or do you basically fill it, run it, drain it and repeat?

^You got it... Run the cheap stuff. Flush at least twice and put in some good OEM fluid or GM Syncromesh. In the mean time, look for a replacement!

Think a magnetic drain plug would help? Anyone selling a tranny in the central florida area?

It's aluminum for sure? Where the heck is my magnet??!?

It's a used tranny bought from a member on this site, I haven't even put a 1000 miles on it. What can fuxxor a shifter fork so bad? Wouldn't that render the tranny inoperable? It was only mildly misbehaving.

My halftshaft seal was leaking, but lit was less than half a quart low when I drained it. Think I screwed it up or did I get shafted by the guy I bought it from? (digs through old PMs and emails)

are you running a cable or hydro tranny? I have friend here that has a 99 ex tranny he wants $300 for. It has less than 15,000 miles on it. He bought it, then blew his motor and swapped in a gsr motor :lol:
