...the trans fluid usually runs out (some of it anyway) when the drive shaft is pulled out the back. Wonder if they topped it off after putting everything back together. Also this model trans had the fill hole defect, so the fluid level may be low. May be worth draining and refilling through the shifter with a full 2.5 quarts.
...thats as good a guess as any. You'll put less stress on 5th gear if you don't use it, so if you want max life before having to do anything about it, I just wouldn't run it in 5th. I haven't used 5th in mine since last year...
...speaking of, I just got a rebuilt trans in on wed. Got in today from work and got started on it. Got the shaft out. Gonna see if I can get the new on in (w/a clutch change in between) by Sunday evening... :woowoo:
