I have had this 240 for about 9 months ...been sorting out the little things. The engine has excessive (to my preference) lifter noise. Is that a trait of the B230F. The transmission whines somewhat when I ease off the throttle and let the car coast in gear (5 speed). Not as pronounced since I changed Trans and Rear fluids. I've driven Hondas and Toyotas since '69, (all 5 speeds), and can't remember any of them being this loud. Actually I had a 66 122S way back when, and I don't recall noise being much of an issue, (I was a lot younger then). ...Just don't want to worry about overhauling something that may be completely normal.
