I had my T56 rebuilt last sumer. Syncro's bushings forks. Topped off with G.M. manual transmission oil. I live in New York and it unfortunetly sits during winter like now and has been since November. I start and move the 2000 Camaro SS every couple of weeks. I moved it today and there is yellow fluid on the ground where it was parked. Not engine oil because that is black and needs to be changed, not engine coolant, not power steering fluid, not brake fluid. Is that the color of G.M. tranny fluid? yellow-ish but consistency of engine oil? Is there a spot to check the transmission fluid on a manual?
2500.00 on a tranny build and i put in syncromesh like my builder suggested. ask the guys that run the vettes and camaro's that run the 24hrs of daytona,le mons,etc syncro is a dark honey color, like previous post is for carbon fiber,and does not breakdown. guess i'll find out.
All you said was it was rebuilt, not $2500 beefed up rebuilt, you asked what color it should be. So like we stated it SHOULD BE RED but yes syncromesh is a light golden color which means your tranny is leaking. Most likely from the rear seal or where the case halves are rtv'd together. Just crawl under the car and look.
