GM Transmissions

This email was circulated among the GM FST Driveline Engineers last week. I wonder if the owner of this vehicle was able to get the repair covered by warranty.

This guy ran over a mattress and decided to keep going. The ensuing jumble finally whipped around enough to put a tear in the gas tank, the
subsequent lack of fuel is what finally brought this vehicle to its knees.

It had still managed to drive 30 more miles decently with a 60 lb tangle wrapped around the driveshaft.

This genius complained that the vehicle had a "shimmy" when driving at high speeds.

This is what the dealership found . . .

WOW. I can say that I have never seen that before. I have seen nylon bailing twine do that and melt on the u-joints, but not that.

BURNOUT.....

Don't limit yourself to your false perseption of what you're capable of and just do what you dream. It's easier than you can immagine.

That looks like some shit I'd see in Iraq working on "fleet" vehicles. Good grief.

Attack life... it's going to kill you anyway.
