2016 - Trans Temp Sensor

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm new to this forum. I have a 2016 Sierra 5.3L 8Speed and it is shifting hard in low gears. Just brought it in to the dealer and they said the trans temp is bad and is affecting the electronic shift adapt. They said a new trans temp is NOT covered under power train warranty.

Welcome to the site!

 

Where are you mileage wise?

 

You can open a claim with GM customer service to see if they will offer assistance on the repair cost.

Thanks! 

I'll have to look into that!

It just hit 90,000 but I recently bought it from a dealer that certified it so I get 3 months of power train warranty. They said power train only covers internally lubricated parts.

You may have to remind them that the transmission is full of internally lubricated parts. Lol
