While under my car today preparing to remove the transmission I noticed a white line across the black painted transmission. When I removed the transmission I dicovered that the white line was actually a severe crack in the transmission case that runs almost across the entire upper part of the transmission case from passenger side to drivers side. It is obvious that this is what was causing the severe vibration I was getting while driving the car at mid 3000rpms. Since the transmission shifted fine can the cracked case be the main trouble and not the enternal parts from wear? This case is definately unsafe and unusable. I wonder if this was a bad Case with a hairline crack at the edge prior to install and spread under load conditions.
