sys999 said:Wanted to start a thread to ask those who had their transmissions replaced the question, "What should I be on the lookout for when the MT-82 is going bad?"
At last track day, I had a few 3-4 grinds and one 3-4 refusal. Since then, I had a 1-2 refusal and twice the transmission absolutely did not go into 2nd from a dead stop since I rarely pull from 1st around town. Before this, a little grind when really cold, but no refusals, lockouts, grinds, pedal-to-floor issues, no anything.
Could she just need a fluid change? I have 8 track hours and 15.5k miles on it and there is some RL MTF sitting in my closet. The difference in transmission action in my S2000 was night and day when I went over to RL MTF and I'm hoping these aren't signs of a warranty replacement coming down the pipe.
Thanks in advance for your tips!
EDIT: My 2012 is #1845, so it should not have the old TSBed trans fluid as FF.
