We can do them at the same time and you'll save almost 100% labor. So if you want to do the seal and the clutch, $1590


I'm no super-mechanic, I don't race the car, and couldn't-give-a-shit if the clutch is engaging high or low, as long as it's engaging...
Wow, your dealer sucks. They want to put their kids through college on your dime.

My clutch swap cost me maybe $750 for GMPP parts, ZZP flywheel, and tools. That and 13 hours of my time. It's not a hard job, just time consuming. The jack shaft seal would be an easy fix while you had it out.

Take a look at my GMPP clutch thread.

I just researched this CVT and found out that they stopped using them in Ions and Vues because

they were only lasting 75K miles

an effort for an economy transmission that, I guess, worked better on paper

If you have an Ion Reline we only came in Manual.

Probably will let it go for now

good thing that they did not have our manual trans fluid on the shelf

I also looked at the owners manual for maintenance and it says something about

VTi variable transaxle: Add DEX-CVT additive at every 50K

Does this apply to our manuals?
VTI variable transaxle is another name for CVT automatics, the Ion Redlines only came with Manuals SO DO NOT PUT THAT IN AN ION REDLINE.

If I get used to envying others those parts of myself that I am proud of will recede from me.

Hellooooooo out there! - Anyone still frequent these parts?

I haven't been on the facebook in well over a year so I am behind on the latest happenings. Hope everyone is well and maybe see a few of you at a car show. (If you're still into that sort of thing)

I still come on here a few times a week. I have a Honda CR-Z now and am saving up to S/C it. I do like to go to care shows but don't get to many of them as I find going by my self is boring.
