That's the clue. Driving school. No hard accelerations to stress out the gear teeth. Driving students treat it gingerly to pass (although if I was the teacher, I'd give extra points for snappy launches). All that low-RPM torque may be responsible for wearing down the gears, makes sense.denwood wrote: ↑Mon Apr 12, 2021 5:45 pmThe car was bought new by a local driving school (I know the owner), so I'm about 100% sure the fluid was never touched. The fluid came out brown, and yes the plugs are magnetic. I was expecting a lot more metal evidence based on this thread, but the plugs were clean. The two plugs had the typical "snap" of a plug in an aluminium case that has never been removed. The car likely had very little highway mileage given its previous life. Given i have the car chassis pulled apart, this was the easy job on my list.
Start a thread on why in the Wide World of Sports would you have the chassis apart on an '18 Leaf? ???
Edit: OK, I think I saw some threads on why.
