Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Civic LX 4 Cil

  • Manual transmission
  • 120,000 miles

My 98 civic ex has a manual transmission. It is leaking between the transmission and the engine. I noticed that was the transmission when I was driving on third gear and was making a sound. Then I checked the oil of the transmission and this was almost empty. So I refilled it and suddenly star to leak continually.

The oil level of the engine is ok and runs ok.

I would like to know if you know something about this and what could be and if Is easy to repair.

Thanks
