Well after 56,000 Miles my LIM finally started to leak. I brought my car in for 4 tires and an oil change today after my oil change light came on (which I thought was odd as I should have plenty of time left on the oil). I noticed my car was being slugish the past few days which I figured was because of the oil and tires and the freshly re-built tranny, but I still kinda had the feeling that the LIM gasket was the problem. And I got a call a half hour after I dropped off the car and sure enough, its leaking. Thank god for my super comprehensive amazing mechanical warrenty . In the past month I got a new tranny and now a new LIM at no cost to me :applause: . Well I guess Im part of the club now ;crap

Yeap, I got my LIM done at 60k miles. Luckily I have a friend who is a GM tech, so he did it for me for $300.

My car is at 130k right now and the gaskets still look fine.

there's a thread on here. Basically you put your name on a list and wait for the trial to finish. Then they get back to everyone who put thier name on the list. You need to fax in all coresponding docs, bills, etc.

My LIM blew, and BAD, it spewed coolant out everywhere, then my engine overheated, then my head gaskets blew, and my heads warped... So its getting a new engine as i type this... sorry about your luck man, i know EXACTLY how that feels.

No worries doing the LIM on our cars is considered regular maintenance :)

That blows. Theres another LIM thread and the guy was talking about how he fixed the LIM by just putting sealant on the outside where the LIM and block meet...what an :asshat

But ive had the LIM twice n my car. 2 diff engines tho. I should get my ass on that list 2x...get about 1200buckerooskies back.
