|CJsSky||Mine was leaking from almost day 1. Took Maria in for the shifting clunk. Tech discovered LSD was leaking then, < 1K miles. New seals, and vent tube mod was not going to resolve it. Saturn replaced it. Will see how the new one does. Problem seems to be in the beginning run. Much like Dodge transmissions before SPC.|

see my question here

Does any one know the percentage of Sol/Sky sold that have the LSD, this info would be needed to draw a comparison between the two types of differentials.

|Texas Red Line||Snagged the Redline and drove 825 miles the first day. Took it fairly easy the first 300 miles (no cruise and under 70), next 100 drove it close to normal, next hundred tried it out passing 4 cars and hit 105. The rest of the way was normal driving.2,800 miles and no leaks|

BUMP With all the new leaks reported, especially with the R/L's and some regular rear-ends leak(s), this poll need to be updated & refreshed with the latest new leakers, or re-leakers--Please reply if you Sky has peed any oil--

New Leaker 2
LSD with 5 speed manual. Average 24.8 MPH so I don't Hot Rod. Started leaking at 4000 miles or 4 months.

LSD, 5 sp, 5500 miles just noticed a few spots in the garage

|hyperode||I replied no leak with a 5 speed LSD but only have 1400 miles approximately on the car. Hope I'm not premature in my No leak poll.|

Ok. There's 80 poll votes so far, still not as high as I would like, but we're definitely starting to see a pattern here, and we might be on to something.
It appears that the LSD is what is doing most of the leaking vs the Regular Diff.
LSD Leak vs. Reg Leak
Very clear results there.
Also, regarding the LSD, it does seem that breaking in the car with normal or hard driving is BETTER than how the manual suggests.
LSD Broken in per Manual vs. LSD Broken in Hard/Normal
Again, seems to be very clear results so far.
Let's keep up the voting so we can confirm this theory.
On a separate note, it seems that the transmission doesn't seem to have a clear affect on the eventual leak of the Differential. At least not with any clear results.

9:4 is much better than 18:22 for the LSD diff leaks.
But, it is early in the poll.
|11-02-2006 11:07 PM|
be more specific 9 to 4 is my look in that "area" your talking about (so far). Keep an open mind and look at the 'over all' census of this poll. BTW It is not MY poll, its OUR poll--

|Sabre||So far, the poll supports that a hard break-in is better than the "per manual" break-in with regards to differential leaks.|
