I have drained my transmission and even with the countless 1/4 mile runs and road course action, it was still cherry red and had no burnt odor. If you aren't racing the car, the transmission fluid will be fine for a while. Nice thing is that our transmission pans have a drain plug. To refill the thing you must use a long tube or pump system as the fill hole is not in the easiest location to access. It takes 6.3 qts to fill it. Make sure the new fluid is Dexron 6 approved. Not all fluids are Dexron 6 approved. Mobil has its own fluid for Dexron 6 vehicles as Mobil 1 is not approved.

I'm not giving GM any out if mine goes BOOM!
