I just got my letter in the mail today. Yes it's the transmission tube.

I found out through OnStar during the monthly update from the truck. The dealer emailed me yesterday and had it in this morning to get checked out. Was there for an hour and no broken tube so they just put a sleeve on it, so we shall see. No big deal.

Where does the tube break?, and just how much is the AFM vibrating to make the trans tube break? Seems abnormal to me. Why just the 2010's?


My oil dipstick bracket broke away from the tube this past summer. The dealer just put a new one on for me.
