    Possible IRS Issue

    **** me, I was getting a sound clip of the exhaust just now and I noticed fluid on the exhaust right were the pumpkin is and a little spot on the driveway. Haven't lifted it up yet to inspect it, hopefully it's nothing big and I can make it home. Ryan, remember last night when I told you wheelhop kills shit, well....

    Put it back up on stands and look for a crack. There is actually a TSB for a lack luster gasket seal job, so hopefully thats your problem (mine was replaced under warraqnty when I still had the POS IRS).

    Damnit Mike! Im gonna get Gene and James together friday evening and I was hoping you would join. If I remember right, you wanted to see Gene's car also. Get that thing fixed! Will a local ford dealer fix it being that you live in Cali?

    I'll see if I can get it on a lift tomorrow where my dad works to check it out, I crawled underneith the best I could and the right pipe where it passes by the center section is slightly damp but I don't see fluid everywhere and it just left a small spot on the driveway. I know it's been leaking (like looks damp, not a steady drip) for a while now so hopefully it's what Gene is saying. It seemed fine on the ride hope last night, just had me worried there for a sec, I should know more tomorrow.

    EDIT:
    Yeah, I'll make it out friday regardless, I wanna check out Gene's car while I'm out here. If it does turn out I hurt the Cobra I'll roll out in the SS.

    Took the car over where my dad works today to change the oil and check out the rear. Turns out it was just a leak from the bottom of the cover. The bolts were slightly loose on the rear cover as well so I tightened them up. It took about a half a quart of fluid to top it off. Should be good to go until I decide to pull it to do MJ's brace. Sorry for the false alarm, just sorta scared me.
