Hi there, I am cam. Sorry to hear about this issue.
Did you have the wave plate done under warranty or the special policy?
Do you have any gears or speeds? Reverse? Manual low?

GMC Mechanic: Gm Tech (Cam), GMC Mechanic replied 2 years ago

The site has the phone call as an added service and does cost more as it incurred costs on my end so its not free.

and yes I am going to help you. I do need you to answer the questions I asked so I can help you. I need to know how deep the repair was, was the transmission removed, what parts replaced, what were damaged, and I am trying as well to establish if this is under the terms of the policy and you did not need to pay at all for the repair to the transmission.

Ask Your Own GMC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago

i didnt move the valve body
GMC Mechanic: Gm Tech (Cam), GMC Mechanic replied 2 years ago

OK, did you air check any of the pistons and seals after replacing it?

Did you do any resets on the computer and learn the new clutch fill capacities?

Ask Your Own GMC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
no i didnt do any of that
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
i have a small auto repair shop
GMC Mechanic: Gm Tech (Cam), GMC Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Ok, This may be an issue. These are done with a scanner. and with that, we will need to perform a clutch test to see if all are working or if they slip. This requires a full scan tool.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
hellow wat happen were did you go
GMC Mechanic: Gm Tech (Cam), GMC Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Sorry, I still need to know what gears you have. DO you have reverse? Any manual gears?

Any codes.

IS this the first time you have been in one of these transmissions?

What tools did you use for the install of the piston seals?

Did you air check any of the pistons after and if so, what Psi did you have the air at?
