I just got the new a/c compressor and condenser in the mail today, so they should be on tomorrow. I'm not going to mess with the PS pump just yet.

It's currently at 512,000 miles. Sorry, forgot to update sooner but I've been focusing more on my Jeep project and just got married so things are kind of hectic ATM. The "new" engine and tranny are at 170,000 miles and the tranny is starting to make the same noise the original one made before it went out, I don't think these transmissions like Amsoil.

Congratz on your marriage!! I think it's weird that any manual tranny would go out with the frequency that you're putting these miles on. I would tend to think that they should go a million+. I thought I remember that your clutch went out before but don't remember the tranny giving out??!!

could you experiment with it and change the fluid to say... Honda's juice and if that changes anything. However, chances are if its making the noise already that means its already facked.

Good thing i switched from Amsoil to Redline in my Si

LOL awesome man


I used to keep up with this thread but I've missed out lately.. I believe you have hit 2 deers (or a tire?) replaced the engine, tranny, A/C compressor multiple times..? Can anybody confirm this? I know there are lots of little pieces you've had to fix deltatech, but what about the major components?

The transmission noise is coming from the input shaft (it's a manual btw). When the car is running but not in gear you can hear a 'wet' grinding noise then when you press on the clutch it goes away, I figure it's an input shaft bearing gone bad. Unfortunately I don't know much about transmissions, I've never been inside one but I hope I can get to rebuilding my original tranny so I can see exactly what went bad, and so that I'll have a backup for whenever the one currently in the car goes bad. Next time I change my oil I'm going to switch back to Honda's MTF, I don't think it's going to fix anything but maybe it'll extend the life a bit.

if anything the Amsoil will extend its life, i think its just a defective part more then oil.

Artem not to be brash but Im going to say that evidience is disagreeing with you. Now if anybody frequents the turbo secton, you will notice that alot of tranny's are blowing up. The main transmission fluid run in all of these is 90% amsoil and syncromesh.

Run honda, or redline mtl: change it every 30-60k miles

i don't view the turbo section much, i didnt even know people's were having problems.

Of course you have to take into account the fact that they are boosted and the extra torque applied unto the tranny might be the culprit and they the fluid itself.
I just dont believe that.

What makes Redline any better/safer to use? same thing can happen.

Nah man, transmission fluids from different companies are totally different.

A transmission fluid has to do a few things quite well, keep the components cool, not break down quickly in extreme heat, be thin enough to fit in between the gears, but not so thick that it damages the gears.

Redline must be better. If you really want to look into it, I suggest googling Bob the Oil Guy

About 10k miles ago (37k on the odometer) I changed over to Amsoil MTF cuz I heard great things.. The honda fluid was feeling very thin when I shifted and was glad to switch over. When I did tho it barely felt any better, still very 'notchy' which I heard from many people that would be reduced to a minimum with the amsoil. I've been wanting to change back to honda fluid or maybe the redline but I'm not sure now.

Can't believe I just spend an hour and a half reading the thread. Good job OP, I'm sure you have the highest mileage for the 8th gens.

His service intervals differ from that of your ave Joe because this car is used for deliveries and mostly does highway miles.
