2008 GMC/CHEVY Sierra/Silverado
Was shoveling snow last week and saw what I thought was blood in the snow under the front of the truck (I was warming it and thought I got a critter with the fan). Turns out it was tranny fluid from the transmission cooler hose leaking.
Cursing a blue streak, I made an appointment to get it fixed the following week (today).
Saturday, I got a letter in the mail notifying me of a "silent recall" of 2008 6 speed transmissions that leak at the cooler fittings in very cold weather.
Man, talk about timing!
That letter saved me $350 bucks in repairs.
