Thank you for that information, very handy to know.I don't think they will tell you it is normal. No leak is normal. Geezus, they're [email protected]!#%ED if they do.
The fluid level check procedure in these 6speeds is critical as they have a temp controlled fluid valve that controls the fluid level in the sump of these.
Fluid level checking of these transmissions is a fairly involved procedure. A no experienced DIY'er just wont be able to do without knowing the exact temprature of the fluid at the time of checking the level at the fluid level check plug, with a scantool.
They take DEXRON 6 spec fluid ONLY. Or fully synthetic, Penrite do a good equivalent. Put any other fluid in them and the box is toast !!
Things were much easier when you could just check the dipstick.
I think if I didn't mention the leak, they wouldn't either, being under warranty and all.
If the car was out of warranty and I was just some schmuck who gets my car serviced at Holden, they would be sure to mention it, along with a hefty quote to fix it.
I will see what happens regarding that.
