What could cause this to happen.
My sons 2002 camry v6 suddenly started a gear
grinding crunch from what sounded like the driver
side axle. Upon further inspection i realized its
coming from the transmission. I checked dipstick
and fluid, all though full, was dark and with tiny
metallic flakes. Transmission has never slipped,
never made a sound, and although has not been
flushed since he bought the car a year and a half
ago, it has never given a single warning sign of any
issue. Its actually been a very good running car.
Any reason known why the transmission would
suddenly do this and what kind of damage it could
are you sure it is the Transmission and not the cv axles?
