[xj] was vibration from steering wheel

Hello everybody, turns out it was poor balancing . however i
suspect I have a potential trans problem. In my right hand
drive car, the passenger side ash tray gets very hot after
about 12min driving in traffic. I have replaced trans oil
and filter.(filter was dirty). am I due for a trans
overhaul? note trans does not slip or jump in revs. as
always all comments appreciated. regards john p–

Hi John,
The exhaust runs in the ‘‘tunnel’’ down that side. Maybe some hot air
is finding its way up from there - just a thought.

Just noticed yours is a V12, but I imagine one exhaust pipe still
runs down that side!

adjusting. thanks for your comment. regards jp–

Or the insulation between the tranny and the tunnel, John…

The gearbox does get very hot even working perfectly - but the heat
should not spread…:slight_smile:
