Sometimes you can't find small cracks by visual inspection. It should be magnafluxed to look for small micro fractures. As Z said, it's money well spent.

Stick with what you got. No discernible difference. Put the money toward some really good tires. That would make more of a difference in the "seat of the pants"

You have a GM hydromatic transmission that was manufactured in France. Dextron III is the correct fluid. After 5 years, I would change it again but you can use the highest Dextron # available now...

The fluid coming out of the bell housing is a leak in your slave cylinder. Failure is imminent. I wouldn't wait too long to replace it.

Look on realoem for a schematic. But, if you have a 328, that line goes to a flap on the muffler. It really serves very little purpose except to quiet the exhaust some until car is warmed up. Look up...
