Well, I know I haven't been around much lately..

And here is one of the reasons..

Yeah, that is a massive crack in the Transmission on my Grand Prix..

Its a dry area, no leaks, however it is a mounting point for the transmission..

So anyone seen this before? Any suggestions?

Im going with drive til she dies, the only proper solution in my mind is to replace, so might as well let it die first...

The newer W-body GP's still use the 4T65E trans, right? If so, you can find a ton of them on the cheap.

I have seen cracks like that in bellhousings before but never on a smaller engine like the Grand Prix. The ones that I have seen was on a friend of mines 69 Chevelle and he is on his 3rd or 4th TH400.
