Little to no fluid, old, dirty fluid that over-heated, possible leaking tranny if it was full.

was it manual?

What fluid were you using?
Im guessing low fluid, OR wrong fluid. or diff exploded..sounds like what happend. how do your axle splines look?


IF it was an auto.. then they blow b.c they suck.

Imo, pull the whole engine.. most wont agree with me. but most havent replaced trans in the 420a. Its a pain in the ass. Yes you spend more time pulling everything, but its really the right way.

Can you do it still in the car? sure.. its just 2-3x harder. Replace the axle seals. And when you go to get fluid for it, TXT ME FIRST. i have secrets, just dont wanna give em away to all ; ) ill tell you what to buy and why. and where to get it.

as for spun a rod.. its hard to tell, sometime it will make a bad noise, sometimes it wont. lull the pan and rod caps and look. Or pay me to build ya a beastly 420a ; )

PS: my valve is sticking in the head, thats why its was fucking up at e-ville. i have it all pulled apart..these things happen lol

I'm glad you finally got the thing going, it was just to tempting to swerve over when driving by :P
kidding man, but yeah, it was definitely a weird deal.
