I took the Sprint out for a run last weekend. A fast-ish 45 mins run to a nearby town and return. Naturally I used the OD quite a bit and the car did everything it was supposed to and did it well. Yesterday, I took it out for another, shorter run, but when I went to close the shed up before we left, I could smell gear oil and I noticed a small puddle of the stuff on the floor of the garage.
Yesterdays shorter run had limited use of the OD and I noticed just a small amount of oil on the concrete when we returned. Today I drove it into town for a car show with no OD use and no oil leaking on return. So I can only assume that its the OD pumping out oil while its engaged.
Is this a known problem with the unit? If so what do I need to do to fix it?
Thanks & Cheers,
