Re: Transmission Fluid Level
I'm with Nertil1.
The engineers seem to think that the seals will last forever, and the accountants want us to buy a new car when the seals start to leak.
So yah, I've got that on my "Really, REALLY poor decisions from GM that helped to kill it!" list.
(Glad yours has a dipstick, DrivenDaily. MY Gen5 doesn't. Well, it has one -the dipstick that bought it with such a critical piece of equipment designed out of it.
335K miles on original motor and tranny (only motor work 2 x LIM replacement), Monroe SensaTrac struts front and back (new at approx. 300K miles), and Alero discs in back. LS fogs added with custom wiring. HID high beams, HIR low and halogen fogs. Raybestos Pro Grade front rotors and Bendix D747 ceramic pads on front.
Addendum: Rest in peace. Surge tank blew, motor overheated, I think she's lived a long and useful life.
