New Venture Gear was a joint venture between Chrysler and GM combining the Chrysler Syracuse, NY plant and the GM Muncie, IN plant in 1990. GM sold their share to Chrysler in 2002 but kept the Muncie, IN plant and shut it down in 2006. Chrysler shut down the Syracuse plant in 2012.

I used to own and operate a transmission shop in San Diego. I had a couple of very good builders, but they would not touch a manual transmission. They said that mannys are so much harder to rebuild properly than an auto.

We sent all our mannys out to a shop that specialized in mannys and never had a boomerang.

The Canadian response has been very a muted, "I'll take note that"

BTW Dodge in Canada owns the 3/4, 1 ton market.
There's a much bigger difference than that Why don't Canadians like to buy in their own country ?

Does it actually work correctly this time? How many quarts over full are you running it?
