Just changed V6 Man. Trans fluid.

Hi, lot of you know me from my post 2 weeks ago about a little problem of not being able to shift into 1st gear for a day. Anyway the story is when I went to the dealer the next day it mysteriously went into 1st as soon as he put it on the lift. They contacted GM and they told themm to change the fluid. They didnt have it ins tock until today so I had it done today. There is 8500 miles on the car and the fluid was a bit dirty with just a bit of metal on the magnetic plug. Just a heads up that after 8k mi or so a tranny oil change may be worth it. So far after the first incident no more issues and I do shift hard on occaision. Also found out that GM has not really been recieving a lot of complaints on the tranny but probably some. Seems like a lot of the complaints have not been trickling up the chain enough to be an issue. Even though my issue cleared up I am still contacting NHSTA to let my issue be known.

yes, alot of people complain of issues but dont go thru the process of contacting the NHSTA -AND !!!!!!!!!!!!! GM.-As they will work with your local dealer to try to address people's problems if they know about it..-- I did turn it in to the NHTSA, AND called gm, and they called dealer to say get my veh back in but i got sick of my dealer run around..-- but now i got rid of the v6 as it felt like this trans belongs behind a 2wd pick up - and went and got a ss
