UPDATE!! Bam!!!!! And It Hit"s You Double Whammy

BAM!!!

I got hit with a double whammy today.

Part I. I get a call from my boss today telling me we had a incident on base today and the government customer is sending a investigation team here and I am there laison while here keeping me at work all weekend. I am the Lead QE Incident Investigator on base I cannot say no. Especially when we just laid off 3 people in my office. I was headed to Huntsville to finish building Brent's motor. He will not be happy.

Then part II I just got a call 10 min ago from my wife. She just got back from picking up the kids from school and the car was jerking real bad and there was a awful smell. She pulls into the garage and within seconds there is a lake of Tranny fluid under the car. So It looks like I am going to be busy with the tranny. I hope it is not burned up and just needs the seal to be replaced.

What is next?????

No because the ones that were not upgraded like mine was 2 years ago are dog ****. The average car FWD auto transmission in small fords and all Mazda's gets around 60,000 miles and dies. We can be thankful Mazda does not build ours. I spent close to 2,000 to upgrade her tranny internally. This sucks the Seal blew because I only got the one year warranty not the 3 DAMMITTOHELL!!!

Oh I forgot to mention I just pulled the car up on ramps and found it was indeed the seals on both sides.

Re: Bam!!!!! And It Hit"s You Double Whammy

Yes it is a CD4E/LA4A-EL and they are made by Mazda for Mazda and Ford and they suck ***. Read below. My good friend at a transmission shop say Jap auto tranny's are typically far less reliable than American Tranny's. He also said 1 in 3 cars that come to his shop are Fords and Mazda's like the 626, 323, protege, Contour and ever car in between. Look below at the terrible record of the 4EAT/GF4A-EL and the CD4E/LA4A-EL.

Re: Bam!!!!! And It Hit"s You Double Whammy

If there's one thing I've learned in my short time of 5 months as a software engineer... it's that QEs are, in general, Satan's spawn.

They are the only ones who can turn the simple act of going to the vending machine into a multi-million dollar, three year process.

And that's Mr. Chrome Dome to you..................Mr.??? :dunno:

Re: UPDATE!! Bam!!!!! And It Hit"s You Double Whammy

Well here is an update. I have 2 leaks one is the trans pan and the other requires a complete teardown. So I am knee deep in the tranny now and will take a day or so to get it back in. Damn it sucks working on your back with the car on jack stands. I sure wish I had a lift BY GOD!!!
