Couple questions:

First, my mechanic (friend) thinks I've got the LIM gasket leak. There seems to be a slow buildup of oil from the LIM draining down to the heads. What are some of the signs of LIM gasket leaks?

Also, I think my trans is having problems. Its taking longer to shift, especially first to second or second to third. Instead of having no delay, it takes about a second to complete the shift. Any ideas?

Only mods are the SLP catback, although I drive it like I stole it. 100k miles.

The 1-2 shift delay is a known problem by many of us. I've had my 2000 with 64k in for that same issue and there are no codes set by the computer so they say there's nothing wrong with it. I suspect our transmission just gets sloppy as it gets older.

Sounds like a LIM leak to me.
