My wife/kids drive this car daily. The transaxle has had a main bearing making noise for a while.
I let problems go until they are truly a problem. It chunked out the bearing and started making bad-bad noises….so here I am changing a transaxle this weekend. I’m playing the “transaxle lottery” today. I had this core in my backyard, that I assumed I put there because I thought it was good. We’ll see. I may be doing all this work again next weekend if I loose.Scott SainParticipantDecember 24, 2017 at 10:27 amPost count: 392

I won the transaxle lottery!
I wasted a lot of time cleaning and re-sealing. If I were a paying customer, I could have bought the transaxle rebuild with what the extra time cost. I’m glad it worked out.FranzParticipantDecember 26, 2017 at 4:10 pmPost count: 5403
Today’s parkway happenings. A wolfsburg 23 in for detail/loose ends. Just got a list together of parts to order.

Does it need the valves adjusted and heads torqued? Anything that I missed?

Ya, sounds about right. Adjusting the doors so they don’t bang and chip again. You could do the maintenance on it if you think it needs it. Valves, head torque etc. KB said he had it done here not to long ago, but you never know.John JonesModeratorDecember 27, 2017 at 7:55 amPost count: 13333
