[DML] Re: Manual transmission observation

I guess should probably replace the slave and master cylinder while 
I am at it. Is there a way to tell if I have all ready done damage 
to my tranny? It shifts so well usually, I never have a problem 
going into reverse or into second. If something was broken in there 
I would feel and hear the side effect correct?
