Is it normal for these trannys to make a whizzing/whirling type of noise? Sounds like something is "spinning." Could it by the shifter?

Sounds like it may have a bad bearing or a worn gear.

My M20 is very noisy exactly like you described. I actually have a post in Troubleshooting about it right now because my shifter rattles constantly while I'm driving. Good luck ~ John

Sad thing, I just paid $1,100 for a total rebuild. I know, paid at least $300 too much.

I'm taking the car back next week to have it checked out since it's under warranty. I wish for what I paid, it should have been done right the first time.

I have about $600.oo total into the M20. I have been told by various people that some of these aluminum cases wear in the bearing races on the inside and are never quite right. Has anyone else heard about this? Good luck. At least yours is in warranty,if you stick with it hopefully they will get it right. I had to take mine back too because it started grinding fourth and they fixed that but I still have the spinning whirring sound. Take care ~ John

Question

I feel pretty stupid asking this, but what fill hole? I didn't even know they used any kind of fluid, duh? If so, what kind of fluid and where does it go in? I've never even checked mine, I'd like to check it before something goes wrong.......KZ

John,

I believe that the fill hole is on the upper portion of the tranny on one of the sides and has a plug of some kind, where you fill in the gear oil. Also, I spoke to Justin and his shop will be ready next week in Mesquite and he's going to do your car first.
