    I have a 1999 Eclipse (non-turbo) which came from the factory with a Chrysler drivetrain. Whenever I need drivetrain parts, I head to the nearest Mopar counter because Mitsubishi parts are almost double in some cases.

    Awesome.

    But they said there are none available in North America and they had no idea how long it would take to get one in.
    Odd, because this same transmission is used in the Versa Note.

    Also in the Chevrolet Spark.

    Yeah, we're having a hard time finding both filters. It'd be nice to get them for less than $20-30Cad each.

    I tore apart the filter that was in the pan of the failed cvt. I guess most of the metal shavings got sucked up into the filter housing and just collected int the corner where the pump sucked the fluid up the tube. Name:  IMG_7851[1].jpg

    The Ford AOD and C6 will easily last 200k plus. My grandpa's old truck had the C6 before he sold it guy still has it at 450k plus in the original engine and trans. Granted he has replaced nearly every body panel multiple times to make up for it.

    Hmmm...that doesn't look too good. Especially on a trans where filter replacement is not even mentioned in the service manual?!?

    What supports the other end of the input shaft in the engine? (Pilot bushing?) is it screwed up too?

    Sorry for the dumb question... But automatics aren't my thing

    The tranny end of the input shaft has a sealed bearing at the end of it.Name:  back of input shaft mits.jpg

Size:  86.9 KB The other(engine end) of the shaft goes into the torque converter which is bolted to the flywheel/flexplate.

    Check out the description on this part: https://maktrans.net/zaptchasti-akpp...noy-val-JF015E It seems common for the bearing to wear and take out the housing as it vibrates in some Nissan's. This would explain the damage that happened to mine but the bearing seems to still spin fine and doesn't have any noticeable play.

    I wonder if Mitsubishi Corp watches this forum ever? And if so, are you seeing this Mitsubishi? Might want to address the lack of filter literature in the manual or anywhere.

    Pryme: they know about, and I've even been told they appreciate the forum. But I doubt they pay anybody to follow it.

    If anybody wants Mitsubishi to know something, best to contact them directly.
