yesh! changed my transmission fluid, havent bothered doing it in 8 months or so because i either didnt have time, or didnt have money, and whenever i put money aside for the car i had to spend it on other things to keep it running like the waterpump or the exhaust because the old one got to the point it was an inch of mild steel holding the pipe into the muffler haha, and ive done a fair few kms on the highway some weekend driving 2 hours friday nite and back on sundays, so changed the fluid today since ive had no work for a while and im tryin to make good use of my days with little money, and yes as soon as i cracked the seal on that sump the smell! my little tool shed will never smell the same since i spilt a little bit of the old fluid on the floor, but i put some fresh fluid and a filter in and some lucas transmission additive to stop slipping and condition the transmission which works a treat and im getting sweet shifts, i also put in the xr6 tailshaft, i think it may have made a difference, but only a bees d**k of difference lol

Believe it if it makes you feel good i reckon. The xr shafts are lighter though...

it definatly feels better to drive but if it was a hard job to swap it i wouldnt of bothered, actually it was hard i had to angle grind the bolts off the old one and buy new ones, and the grinder blew up after 1 bolt, and it wasnt mine so i had to buy a new one and now i still dont own my own grinder :(

also forgot to mention the black strips running down both sides of the front windscreen looked crappy one had faded and gone rough and the driver side had the plastic s**t peeling off it so i got a razor blade scratched the rest of it off and painted the metal black with a flat black pressure pack can and it looks much better

my cars been in the wars lately, diffs RS(rat s**t) and the bottom end knock is getting louder, windscreen has cracked, from a stone chip off a truck, flat battery, small coolant leak, and the injectors need replacing, not to mention i need new tyres, sway bar rubbers,and the bodys been hammered with hail a while ago,so if i get some fulltime work soon ill be in the market for another car, and i might strip this thing out for the fairmont gear and put it into another car, or sell off whats left of the usefull parts in the car
