Hi all, had taken the recommendations of this thread and gone to LCH Brothers a few times, and visited Joo Fatt once to reset my car key's remote. Recently switched to a COE Stream, and a mechanic warned me that there's leakage from my auto transmission. Have done some homework, so my choices are either to gamble with scrap cars' gearboxes or recondition my existing one, with the latter option being more pricey but with warranty when done. Will LCH or Jet have lobang to recondition the gearbox in JB for better workmanship and/or pricing? Or should I do it locally so that it's easier to return to the workshop if it breaks down or shows sign of leakage again? Really want to drive the Stream for the next 5 years...

Lch bro - I have seen ah yuan strip out so many different types of gearboxes from puny to high end cars. Ask him to check first, confirmed got leaking then proceed.

Leak doesnt mean u need to recon the whole.

Try this first. Remove the old gasket n put on a new one, change tranny filter n then put in new tranny fluid.

Should be less than sgd200 if u do it in sg. Bring ur own filter gasket n oil to lch will save u some money too.

Thanks guys for the advice! I'm bugging the dealer to get their mechanic/workshop to check it out further, see how it goes tomorrow.

Oh, I forgot to state, I get some irregular shuddering when accelerating between 20-40km/h slowly, especially after a traffic light change. Doesn't seem to happen if I do a relatively faster acceleration from standstill. That's why the mechanic I visited said it's a symptom of the gearbox showing early signs of failing... said can probably drive with it but nobody would know when it would fail completely.

Can i just check hor, if my car windscreen always fog up, is it air con problem? I haven't try driving with the air con off yet.

But this past few days, always fog up at certain spots only. Initially i thought is dirty spot, i wipe with water, wipe with Rain-X, no difference. I did notice that cars suppose to have 2 venting points. 1 on the outside, the wiper area and 1 more on the inside of the car.

But my Vios only have on the outside which is the wiper blade area. How arh?

It's a 9+ year old Honda Stream with 157k on the odometer. The dealer referred me to a workshop who then diagnosed it as a failing gearbox. Said will change it for me so I've gotta send the car in tomorrow.

If the dealer has offered to fix the issue, then let them fix it.

Actually if air con too cold, should fog up the whole windscreen mah?

Now my issue only fog up certain points of the windscreen. The center of the front windscreen(1 small patch) and the back windscreen(right side).

Then perhaps some where the rubber seal is hardened and air from outside is "leaking" inside
