Well I went and spoke to the sales manger at Joseph Chevrolet where I bought
this Z34. The only reason that I even went there is because he seamed like a
real decent person when I dealt with him on the car. Come to find out the
transmission was a GM remanufactured and not rebuilt at the dealer, only
installed by them.
I asked him was there any way that he could get them to warranty the
transmission as I'm the first owner since it was replaced. He said he could
get them to do it, all he had to do was tell them to warranty it. He wanted
me to agree to paying for the diagnosis so that if it wasn't the
transmission at fault that I would pay for repairs. I agreed.
Well they told me that it had internal pressure losses and that's why 1st to
2nd shifting was erratic.
Longer store short they have one on order and will cover the costs.
It never hurts to go and talk man to man with someone and keep a cool head.
He earned more of my business today when I got the news.
Good work! Most (if not all) of the crazies coming into
the dealership raising supreme shit, don't end up getting
Then again, if the trans was a "SERTA" (GM's rebuilt
transmissions) they are usually warranted for 3 years/80k klms.
So, unless the car has only gone 10,000 miles in over 3 years,
you should have been covered anyway.
