When it comes to potentially complex transmission maintenance or repair, you should rely on an expert Certified Service technician armed with GM-specific diagnostic capability and vehicle knowledge to help find your solution.
When you experience a transmission problem, it could be a sign of a number of other issues. The transmission has more moving parts than most vehicle systems. That’s why you should rely on an expert Certified Service technician with advanced training and superior GM vehicle knowledge.
Diagnosing a transmission problem can be complicated. If a part fails, you might experience symptoms such as shift delays, slipping, clunking, humming, or grinding. The correct repair can range from a new gasket to a full transmission replacement.
If there is a transmission issue that requires immediate attention, the Driver Information Center may display one of the following messages:
This message displays if there is a problem with the transmission. See your dealer for transmission service.
A transmission hot message may display if the automatic transmission fluid is too hot. Driving under this condition can damage the vehicle. Stop and idle the engine to cool the automatic transmission fluid. This message clears when the transmission fluid has cooled sufficiently.

It is not necessary to check the transmission fluid level. A transmission fluid leak is the only reason for fluid loss. If a leak occurs, take the vehicle to your dealer and have it repaired as soon as possible.
There is a special procedure for checking and changing the transmission fluid. Since this procedure is difficult, this type of transmission repair should be done at your dealer. Change the fluid at the intervals listed in the Maintenance Schedule of your Owner’s Manual, and be sure to use the fluid listed under Recommended Fluids and Lubricants.
