LSD with 5 speed manual. Average 24.8 MPH so I don't Hot Rod. Started leaking at 4000 miles or 4 months.
this pole is really starting to show that easy or light break in for the LSD is causing leaks.

Keep the info coming!

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--:thumbs:

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

poll

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.

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.:willy:

I agree

I don't think the break-in method has anything to do with the differential leak. Most of the leaks are vent, shaft seal or baffling. None of these issues would be effected by the way you drive the car during break-in.
break in has nothing to do with it:banghead:
