I just installed my clutch and it my tranny leaks.. DOH... when I look up where its leaking from it looks like its coming from the driverside half shaft ohh and its a little hard to shift. I installed the stage 2 clutch with flywheel... can someone give me advise about it? and don't tell me to take it in the tranny shop.. hehe But I really need some HELP..

Thanks

Sounds like the oil seal in your tranny where the half-shaft comes in when whoever reisntalled the axles put the half-shaft back in was ruined. Take the axlee out and get a new seal. I don't know if there's a way to fix it w/o doing it...

ohh i hope that's it.. ohh do I... I will never pull that tranny again.. that was the most horrible thing ever to do. 4 (12hr) days to pull it and put back in. what about the clutch being grinding feeling in each gear? Do I have to adjust the clutch if so how? Thanks new for the advise

little up date.. i parked my car in the garage and looked under it this morning and there wasn't any fluid leak out. I'm thinking since i had the front in jacked up soo high that the fluid was dripping out. What does everyone think? I need some advise please.

Your gears are grinding??? Not good, most likely your syncrho rings. And for not wanting to pull your tranny out again, it's inevitable if you are going to fix your syncrhos...

The mechanic who rebuilt my engine overfilled the trany - probably when he had them both out (he R&R'd them together). The trany fluid leaked out of the seals around each driveshaft when I got the car back. Once the fluid level was lowered, no more leaks.

If you are grinding in every gear, it could be the clutch not releasing properly. I doubt every synchro would go bad at once; Usually just one goes bad, maybe two. Be sure you have properly and completely bled the clutch hydraulics. Be sure the pedal height is correct. Check the service manual for specifiics.

if there is no air in the system, there is a threaded rod on the clutch arm under the dash. make the rod longer to get more push to release it. adjust it so it doesnot grab on the floor. also if this car is turbo it has power assist clutch. check hose to res and clutch booster
