Hi All,

Been having issues with performance and ecconomy, and I believe it has everything to do with the trans cooler in the radiator splitting and transferring coolant to the trans( 03 BA XL UTE 4 Speed). I have included some pictures for you guys to confirm.

I think it may be time for that T5 swap, as i think the box is on its last legs.

Some symtoms include:

-Bogs down when accelerating in 4th, have to release the throttle and engage again to downshift.
-tacho is "hunting" when coasting (its noticeable movement on the tacho)
-high fuel consumption (16L/100km)
-Acceleration uphill from stand-still, its reving alot higher than i remember.

How long do i have, till it wont have any drive at all.

Here are the photos, showing the buildup on the cap and the reservoir

Hope i can get some answers soon

Cheers
