transmission cooling line leak-from factory

the guys at Champion Chevrolet did a great job going through our 1SS prior to us taking possession. they found a small leak where one of the transmission cooling lines go into the radiator. The line was cross threaded. The radiator is aluminum, and I suspect the line is steel, so the threads in the radiator are toast. it appears it came from the factory like this. They ordered a new radiator should have it tomorrow, God willing and the creek don't rise ( I crack myself up) and we hopefully will have the car tomorrow too. There are only 3 radiators available in the US. I hope others don't have other issues and can't get parts.

One other issue, at the top of the rear bumper -even with the taillights- the paint is "broken" still attached, where the bumper meets the metal. It will need painted.

Sounds like someone missed a defective fitting and tried to force it. You have to replace the fittings anytime you take the lines off (sidenote).

At least you know it's there. May that be your only bad experience. Congrats

Why not just get a seperate tranny cooler installed? I would have done that had I ordered a automatic.

When the Chevy Dealer put an auxillary tranny cooler on my car they still run it through the radiator. Said you need to to help bring the tranny up to operating temperature quicker, especially in the northern areas during winter. It can actually be bad for the transmission to run below operating temperature for long periods.

Sounds like they need to fix a few items for you, under warranty and or just because. Make sure it is noted and a We owe you card is filled out saying they will fix the stuff.

It sucks these things are wrong. At least it sounds like they're going to be addressed. It's a good thing the leak was caught at PDI, but still. I long wait now made longer :(

30min. job inside tap rethread. you dont have to replace fittings when you take them loose.had mine loose lots of times never replaced nothing. use an anti seize when working on fittings on alum.

Does Antiseize mix with tranny fluid?

I've had my Camaro about 8 days now and my dealer (Eric @ Classic Chevrolet) called me today to see if everything was ok. I've put about 700 miles on her and she's freakin outstanding.
I see you got it taken care of and I'm sure you're gonna love it.
