The service rep (allegedly) said he told my dealer to check my bell housing through the starter to check for oil, but the dealer never actually told me if they did anything. He just said the transmission tech said "couldn't replicate" the problem.
So, I don't know if they even checked, but if I don't have oil - this could be my issue and also why the clutch slippage gets worse after extended driving if that bearing is binding and heating up!
