Default Re: S-Series Automatic Transaxle "Reverse Slam Cure-All"

Use the 23mm socket and torque the input shaft nut to 111 lbs.

I have a 23mm 12pt socket and it does not sit all the way inside on the input shaft. It just barely grips on the outer teeth of the nut.

Will I need some type of thin walled socket? This craftsman just isn't doing the trick....


Also, how much play would I be feeling if the nut has backed off any?
The car slams into all gears, including reverse... the Saturn tech I spoke with confirmed that a likely cause would be the nut backing off.
So, if I am facing the input shaft, would I be seeing play towards and away from me, rather than left to right? (does that make sense?)
