RE: Spider Bite
But not if yours is well maintained with proper gear oil and periodic
I know that the gear oil in mine at 230K km is original - it's just been
changed - trans - torsen and rear diff.
If as "they" say it is a torsen phenomenon yours WILL display it. If it is
a torsen 'related' phenomenon - and the relationship is wear and /or
neglect, not all will display it. Mind you most drivers never push the car
to it's limits anyway.
Thanks for your quick response to my no spark - I've sent a copy of the
pages to the mechanic via fax.

If it were, I'd expect to see it in mine at 188k miles.
