Question about 2005 GMC Envoy
I have 98k miles on 2005 envoy xl. In Feb 08 I got transmission serviced at the dealership, fluid and internal filter changed. Now in April 09, the transmission is gone. No second and third gears and the fluid is so burned they cannot tell what the problem was. Should that happen 1 yr later after service?? They, the dealership, wants to charge me $500 to break it down to see IF they can figure out what happened.
It sounds like it just failed for whatever reason. It's 50/50 whether there was anything done that could have caused the problem (filter installed incorrectly or wrong part?) The key now is to look for the solution. Make sure that the cooler is working when the transmission gets fixed or replaced so that isn't a problem. Get a good warranty, and I would say it's up to you, but I would think about having the trans fixed somewhere other than where the service was done that might have caused it. They aren't going to tell you if they find out that they screwed up, and letting them 'take a look' is an opportunity to hide anything they did. Have whoever takes it apart look for possible causes and document it.
