Duetto Rear Trans Mount ?
So a few weeks ago when my tech was installing new Miller's Classic Green gear oil in my trans, he notices that the rear trans mount looks poor at best. He recommended that we change it the next time up on the lift, so I ordered a new replacement mount from Classic Alfa in my last parts order.
For the last couple of years, I had noticed a bit of a growl from 5th gear occasionally, 1 thru 4 smooth as silk, no noises whatsoever. So I figure, maybe since my rear mount was bad, AND 5th gear is at the rear of the gearbox, maybe that is where my periodic 5th gear noise was coming from.... hey alignment is everything sometimes, right.
So this morning we change out the mount.... so on the way home...... 5th gear is now also smooth as silk... no noise or growl at al.... BUT I now have a bit of a vibration under the car at all times..... like the drivetrain is now back in alignment and the car doesn't like it ! My tech previously has checked my motor mounts and driveline doughnut and gave me the thumbs up..... so what gives ?
Let me know what you think, and thanks in advance.
