I have a '95 Toyota Tercel DX with 250,000km (156000mi). It is a 5-speed manual transmission.
I recently took it into a Mr. Lube for an oil change and replacement of the transmission gear-oil.
However, after a few days I started having trouble putting it into 3rd/4th gears, and a loud whirring sound was emanating from the car.
Nevetheless, I took it in to Mr. Lube and they mentioned that the housing around the drain plug (of the transmission) is cracked.
Q: I am guessing the service technician over-torque'd the drain plug nut and thus cracked it. Are drain plugs (housing) really that sensitive?
Appreciate opinions and other stories.
