spent part of yesterday under the quattro changing the tranny and diff
fluids..i used redline mt90 in the tranny and 75w90 gl5 in the rear. the
tranny filled just fine but at -10deg c the 75w90 took over night and part
of the afternoon to fill. these redline fluids have transformed the car :>)
the tranny shifts much smoother than before and the gear whine is almost
gone.....sadly, while i was underneath, a drip of something fell onto my
head.....further examination revealed that one of my turbo cooling lines at
the turbo is leaking. drat, not too accessible, and it's even colder today!
i replaced the other line about two years ago. i just love icy coolant
running down my sleeve! oh well i've got lots of driving to do over the next
3 weeks so its time to crawl under.
merry christmas to all!
