Sounds like they put a defective converter in your car..they do sell a converter oil additive to handle coverter lock up problems that may take care of it..check with the trans garage about trying it. Or go for the warrenty if valid still..good luck.

I know that GM dosen't have a fill/check tube on several models. They use a plug on the side of the unit (like on stickshift transmissions) I'm sure there would be a similar item on your transmission otherwise after a rebuild, there would be no way to refill it. If it's a small leak you could try using a good sealer/conditioner such as Lucas, which may help you a lot.

Some owners of the above models equipped with a Hydra-Matic 4T65-E transaxle with a Julian Date prior to 0045 may comment on a whine noise in PARK and/or NEUTRAL or a Service Engine Soon or Service Vehicle Soon lamp that is illuminated. Upon investigation, a DTC P0741 or P0742 may be found.
The above condition may be due to drive sprocket support bearing fluting and/or bearing failure.
Replace the drive sprocket support bearing. Inspect the channel plate and drive sprocket for any abnormal wear, Turbine shaft for cut seals and/or nicks, and chain for excessive play due to failed bearings.
When installing the new bearing, the part number MUST be visible (facing upward). Before installing the drive sprocket, lubricate the bearing assembly with J 36850 assembly lubricant.
Refer to the 4T65-E Unit Repair Section for the installation procedure.
Service Part Information:
Part Number: 24214158
Description: Drive Sprocket Support Bearing
Parts are currently available from GMSPO.
Its possible that you can use a voltmeter to test for power and ground at the TCC solenoid connector and also resistance across the solenoid. The scan tool is helpful in pulling the codes, commanding the TCC on and off and monitoring the state of command while driving.
Hope help with this (remem,ber comment and rated this).
