Question Question for you guys???

well just put 22000 on the imp,which isnt too bad for an 08.Now my question is has anyone had trouble,with a trans leak by the driver side wheel???Or a rear main seal leak,I looked under my car today when getting my tires balance.And I notice fresh oil and tranny fluid,guess it might be time to take here back into the stealership b4 the HEADERS ARE READY... Any info would be greatly appricated,thanks

Yeah pretty sure its tranny fluid mel,it is a red fluid.ill have to check into the o ring as well,atr first I thought maybe I didn't tighten up the oil filter.but it was tight as hell when I check,at break time ill check to see where my fluids are,and ill see how bad the leak...

Might be a dumb question,that stuff should be covered by warrenty???Right???

Alright ill have to check into that bdyman,what about the the tranny leak???when I looked under the car it was on the driver side by the wheel,could the I shaft be goin out or the bearing inside.which is causing it to leak???

I had the same problem, if you look in your engine bay driver side bottom you will notice
that there are two transmission lines running together side by side to the air trans cooler next to the radiator....its simple the two trans line rubbed themselves out one or the other broke out fluid first, so I would recommend you buy both new ones and when installed make sure that they are separated just enough so that they do not rub.....its one the flaws that GM did with these LS4s and there prone to leakage, I recommend everyone that reads this and has an LS4 to check this and pull those tranny cooler lines apart so they do not rub.

Well found out today that the oil pan gasket is where my oil leak problem is,but as for my tranny leak there gonna run a dye thru the system to see where the leak is coming from.On a side note,im gettin all warrenty work done on the impy passenger seat makes a funny noise when someone sits on it and the passenger side front seat belt wont engage...Should have my car back by friday
