    Independentfool is right on with all his recomendations top to bottom front to back
    sides a drain and fill is 5 or 6 quarts and a flush is more than 12.....and whoever thinks that shitass orange coolat is the bomb will be buying an intake sooner than later.....sorry I had to vent for a sec....but this website frustrates me sometimes you guys are so much in the "know" bout certain things and then something like this?? meh
    Weird, MY dealer has DOZENS of cars that service their trannies at 100K intervals and we've rebuilt like *1* in the last 6 months. Not to mention, I have quite a few that get 200K + put on them. Seriously, if he's overhauling the trans at 100K, he did something idiotic with it like tow a house or give the car to a teenager.

    And show me ONE SINGLE IOTA OF PROOF that Dexcool causes ANY problems with intakes on 3100/3400's. Go look at the gasket design dipshit, and tell me THAT isn't the problem.

    As for "in the know", YOU most assuredly AREN'T...........YOU are the guy telling somebody to spend more money than they need to.



    And Canada is dead on. PC solenoid is about it...........and guess what...you KNOW when it goes out, because it throws a code (P13XX or something I think) and turns on the SES light......weird.

    Sooooo, if you actually want to know why that annoying little light is on and get it fixed (it's not the cheapest job [3.5hrs or somesuh IIRC], but WAY cheaper than an overhaul), you have no problems.....ta-da.

    If you are REALLY worried about it being a rental, do a simple pan drop at 50K to keep the trans happy (rental IS severe duty) and do a REAL service at 100K.

    Re: Impala maintenance intervals

    Okay...

    All I wanted to know what the maintenance intervals were. I realize this vehicle is still fairly new however it had 30,000 miles on it in the first year of it being made, thus why I want to be proactive on this car. That's it.

    Thanks for the ideas!
