thanks for the welcome! the transmission noise is actually only there during initial acceleration and seems to get progressively more mild as i go through the gears. i'll be swapping out the fluids all around here pretty soon, possibly this weekend so i'll definitely see if that helps. a lot of the recommendation's i've seen for the transmission call for amsoil 10w-40, your take?
