Car overheated and was losing coolant. Haven't figured out the problem yet.
MY HUSBAND AND I WAS ON THE INTERSTATE AND THE TEMPERATURE INDICATOR LIGHTED UP AND THEN A MESSAGE CAME A CROSS HIGH TEMP/OVERHEATED. WE PULLED OVER TO A GAS STATION FLUIDS POURING OUT FROM UNDERNEATH THE CAR. MY HUSBAND CHECKED IT OUT THE ANTIFREEZE FLUIDS HAD ALL LEAKED OUT. SO HE WENT AND BROUGHT COOLANT POURED IT IN AND IT LEAKED RIGHT BACK OUT. TOWED TO NEAREST CHEVY DEALERSHIP WAS TOLD IT WAS THE IN AND OUT HOSE CONNECTED BETWEEN TRANSMISSION AND ENGINE. THE COST $1100. EXTENDED WARRANTY AND BUMPER TO BUMPER 100,000 MILES COULD NOT COVER!!!! OUT OF POCKET EXPENSE THIS IS VERY WRONG!
