Hey guys, got an interesting (at least to me) problem. It's an 87 v6 5-speed with about 70k miles.
Heard a loud thud, then a clunk on each rotation of the wheel as I limped home the car. Pulled the engine, opened it up and saw this. Any ideas? Had a similar issue in 1989, except after the thud the car drove fine and there was a little oil leakage. The dealership said they replaced the transmission but I'm wondering now if that was a lie.
I intend on replacing the transmission but I'd feel better about it if I knew that this was a one time incident and not a normal issue with these tranmissions.
