    No second gear in Chevy Metro

    I will probably pull it to tear down and clean out. I'll inspect it and throw it back together to drive as a 4 apeed untill parts arrive. Or just keep driving the Yukon until its fixed properly. As long as I can find parts I will rebuild rather than replace.

    No second gear in Chevy Metro

    Just bought a 2000 Chevy Metro that needs a lot of work but hits on all 3 and drives. I can put the trans in second and the shift itself feels good and solid but as soon as I let up on the clutch pedal it starts grinding. It sounds to me like the gear teeth are lunched, but I know there is not...

    New LSD, too much FM?

    Yesterday I installed a Yukon Duragrip in my '04 Yukon with the 8.6" 10 bolt. I used approximately 2.5Qt of 80/90wt gear oil and what I guessed to be 2oz (about half of a 4oz bottle.) I was surprised that the diff was quiet the first drive while turning in a circle at full lock both directions...

    Debating repowering my tower.

    I currently have an Asus X58 Sabertooth running a Xeon X5680. X58 platforms still perform really well and if your's does everything you need then there is really no need to replace it. The same level of performance would cost more than the $250 you might get for the MOBO, CPU, and RAM.
