Customer Question
I have a 2001...

I have a 2001 Miata and intermittently I hear a loud squeal, I think it's from the gear box, also I have developed a oil leak from engine area. The car has 117k.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever replaced the gaskets? Maybe the hoses?

No, which gaskets are you referring too?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Miata yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, and tried nothing

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Intermittent clutch chatter, no slippage.

That was a robot before.

If there is motor oil getting on the engine belt/s, that might be the source of the squeal.

Does it squeal when reving the engine?
