  2. Transmission rebuild

    Does anybody have a parts breakdown or exploded view of a c60 six speed transmission? I need to rebuild mine and need know what parts go where. I can't find a manual for it. Thanks
  3. 03 Smt jumping out of 6th gear

    Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    UPDATE: Seems it is the transmission, 3rd gear is grinding on upshift and downshift, 6th gear is popping out of gear. The SMT part is working as it is supposed to. I changed the trans oil to Amsoil GL4 that didn't help. I will have to rebuild the trans or get a replacement. Even though 6th is...

  5. 03 Smt jumping out of 6th gear

    Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    It doesn't matter what speed I'm going in sixth but I tried it at 55, 65, 75, it didn't matter. The difference between 6th and 5th is only about 400 rpm. I got the car a year ago and have had no problems except a little grinding going from 2nd to 3rd. I had drove it about 50 miles the day I...
  6. 03 Smt jumping out of 6th gear

    Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    I,ll try again, driving at 55 in sixth gear the transmission feels like it is going in and out of gear repeatedly, in out in out, the car jerks, it sounds like it's shifting in and out of gear as if the clutch is not disengaged, it grinds a little. Did a re-learn on it and it didn't help

    I don't think the clutch is slipping, it feels like it is going in and out of gear, it grinds a little when it does it and it does it no matter how fast I'm going, can't drive it in sixth. All other gears are fine.
  8. 03 Smt jumping out of 6th gear

    Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    On the highway this morning my 03 SMT started slipping in and out of sixth gear. It shifts through the gears normally and no codes showing. I did take it for inspection test for Texas plates and they hooked it up to their code reader. It started doing it after that, so could it be something they...

  10. Cam chain replacement 1zz

    Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    If they are good for 200k I guess it's ok. I found the slack between the cams.
  11. Cam chain replacement 1zz

    Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    I've done them that way on motorcycles that turn 10k, it's common practice and never heard of one failing.
  12. Cam chain replacement 1zz

    Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Has any replaced a cam chain without removing the front cover using a master link and threading the new chain on? I haven't found a new chain that has a master link but I'm sure it can be done.

  14. New Owner -2002 SMT

    Off Topic
    I just bought a nice red 2003 with 90k, it has the SMT trans which works great but I'm a little sceptical of it. I have a new top coming that I'm going to try and install myself, wish me luck. So far it's a fun car and my wife loves it. We are in Galveston Tx.
