internal components wear a small hole in the rear of the case housing allowing the fluid to leak out without you knowing it. once the fluid is gone the gears grind down to the point where the transmission locks up and you skid to a stop. i've been told this is still an on going problem all the way up to the 2010 model year. *kb

2004 chevy silverado hd 2500 diesel--transfer case wearing from inside out i took my truck in to have service work done on it, and found out from the jasper transmission company, that they are doing a large number of chevy transfer cases because they weren't shimmied right from the factory, causing the gears in the transfer case to eat through the bottom of the housing on the transfer case itself. this then results in the transfer case fluid to leak out, and causes the gear box to come apart inside the transfer case. the chevy dealer that i took my truck to never even mentioned this to me, and was very evasive about the whole issue. i will never buy another gmc (gov't. motors corp.) car or truck again!! *tr

2003 chevy 2500hd duramax/ allison transmission has 94,300 miles on it. found defect while backing it out of driveway; the back cover of the transmission was cracked and fluid coming out.the cover is part no.29544804 through gm.at a cost of $666.60 plus other parts need for repairs and labor also needed to be added to charges. the new part is just that, new from old defective part. i just did the repair my self because just lost my job the day of the transmission failed and couldn't pay to have it done. gm tells me it is an old truck why it failed and they have no liability; yet the new cover is much heavier in design from original one. *tr

i had the transmission fluid flushed and filter changed and the mechanic tells me there was a lot of metal particles in the transmission fluid and felt there was an impending failure. the chevy dealer told me to wait to see what occurs since he had not heard of an allison transmission failing at 50,000 miles which is where the mileage was at when i had the above service done. it seems to drive fine but i am very concerned. i have a duramax engine with the allison transmission bought in 2003 of a 2003 chevy silverado diesel 2500hd. little towing done with the vehicle so that is not the cause. *nm
