Posted previously to this NG so I thought I would bring trans surgeon
and other's up to date.
Past History on 2002 Silverado 1500HD 4L80E
1st transmission repaired at 20,000 KM
Same transmission repaired at 32,000 KM
transmission failed for the 3rd time but this time I took it to a
different dealer for service. Tech. indicated that this tranny was too
messed up for him to attempt any repairs. So the did a certified
Truck has 42,000 KM on it now.
The question that I have now is that the motor ( 6.0L ) is starting to
develop quite a knock at startup and once warmed up and having it
parked for approx. 1 hr. It really hammers especially going from 1st
to 2nd gear.
I'm taking it back to the dealer so that there is a record of this
problem before the warranty runs out. I've been informed by others
that GM will not do anything to fix this problem until they are one
step away from going to trial on a lawsuit.
I know there are others in the States that have found remedy for this
situation and that there is probably a class action law suit starting.
Unfortunately I live in Canada and we do not have any Lemon Laws here
that would give us any recourse.
If anyone has had any success with GM over this issue, I would really
appreciate any help that you can give.
thanks in advance
