Unhappy Lost throttle after replacing suspension

Hi There

I'm new in this forum, sorry for my english level.

I have a 308 Feline Diesel 120HP and I've replaced the front suspension. During the replacement i moved the right drive shaft (car from a front view) and there was a gearbox oil leak (about a liter),

After replacing the suspension for the new pair i refilled the gearbox oil, and there was no leak, was everything ok.

Once I made a testing drive i've noticed that the car lost some of its power (or throttle), it feels heavier on some point. I suspect an allignment issue, but have no proves of it.

Any clue of what could be the problem?

Brakes don't feel hot. Today I drove 170 kilometers, and there was no problem with brakes but still feeling the car "heavy"

Have you checked the oil level in the gearbox. May be it is overfilled.

I have drained the gear box, and it was about 1,2 Liters. Then I refilled the gearbox with 1,9 Liters. I dont think is overfilled

At the bottom of the gearbox there is a two leveled level control screw. Please check it from there or refer to maintenance manual to learn the right level and check again.
If you think that there is no problem with the drive shaft installation, the problem is most probably gearbox oil level.
Additionally, please check that bearings are clean and working well.

It seems better to dismantle all suspension, check again and reinstall.
Before dismantling firstly discharge the gearbox fluid first.

They say that there is no way to check the gearbox oil level, is that true?

Gearbox oil level will not affect the way the car drives !

On automatic gearboxes, there is a leveling part within the emptying screw at the bottom. . After filling from the top of the gearbox, you can check the level from underside.

I'm not sure whether there is one on manual gearboxes.

I used have a Auto6R which is completely the same as manuals and it used to have a emptying screw at the bottom. Whether there is one or not, you can empty the fluid from bottom screw then refill the right liters of oil from the top. This is guaranteed.

Thats all well and good but oil level will NOT affect the way car drives if level was low on an auto it can delay gearchanges but on a manual it does nothing !!
