    Hi Eric,

    So I have a 98 Acura 3.5 RL with over 250K miles and have just loved this car and am the second owner since purchasing in 2001 with 22K miles. The only major repairs I have made since owning this car is the timing belt all other repairs I have made mostly myself with the help of RockAuto and a local mechanic.

    Recently I had an issue with the transmission where I heard a sudden grinding noise and shifting through forward drive gears were affected. Reverse however seems to still be working. I took to my local mechanic and he put on his lift and said it seems like the noise is coming from the differential transfer case housing. Since he’s not a transmission specialist he declined to do the work as it was a very big job based on his research.

    I’m not ready to part with this car yet since the engine is still going strong and has a bit of life left. Do you have any online videos of this repair that may be helpful or do you have any other suggestions for moving forward with the repair.

    Thanks from Chris in New jersey
