'09 EG, stage 1, everything else stock. 62,000 kilometres. I'm on my 3rd starter clutch and still get some grinding and crashing in the primary. I know I need to replace the ring gear because there is metal on the drain plug, and I need to replace the compensator. The local dealer told me that the metal in the primary fluid can get past 'the seal' and contaminate the transmission, and destroy the tranny bearings. I don't trust then at the best of times and I think they are just trying to take as much out of me as possible. Can anyone tell me if what they say is true or total lie.
