OP - it is likely that you have somehow warped, hit or over pressurized the pan causing the gasket or sealer bead to squeak.. In the first and third instances, you need to have a look at the fluid and filter and check who last performed the service. It is possible that whoever did the work last time didn't use the torque table to refit the pan. This is not uncommon at jiffy transmmission places. In the second instance - you need to have ask a sometimes difficult and pregnant question regarding recent driving experiences amongst your family.. Almost greater care is required here - remember, very few folks deliberately go out of their way to bust the family car. In all cases - park it at whoever does your service this evening and leave it there until they can go over it.. You may have to visit twice depending - stay *off* the turbo for a while until you can confirm normal function. -- Radio Free Dexterdyne Top Tune o'be-do-da-day Rose Royce - Car Wash http://www.dexterdyne.org/888/072.RAM all tunes - no cookies no subscription no weather no ads no news no phone in no sign up required - all the Time
