Vehicles with a 6speed automatic transmission may develop one or more of the following faults related to a broken 35R clutch wave plate inside the transmission: Illumination of the Check Engine Light with code P0716, P0776, P0717, P0777, P2714, P2715, and/or P02723, loss of reverse gear, slipping or harsh 3rd or 5th gear shift.

    started shifting hard out of 3rd and 5th gear then check engine light came on. Codes where P0700 and P0716 took it to the dealership and they said it was the 3-5-R waveplate. It was covered under the powertrain warrenty

    Same as noted. Slipping while backing up. The Check light came on many times I had the dealer look at it and was told there was no problem. Now that the warranty is up and the problem is so noticeable they know what the problem is but it's now my out of pocket cost.

    The problem accrued on my wife's lunch break. She was running an errand when se called me and said she lost al low end power. Was not able to get up to speed fast. Check engine light came on and that was that. She made it back to work we're I picked it up and drove straight to the dealership. Had two codes in it from the transmission. One was the speed sensor at $465 dollars to replace before they could check the transmission. Wow. Finally after a day and a half I had a quote for 2-3k to rebuild the transmission and 4,100 to get a new one with a three year warranty. It only has 83,000 miles. I owe 6,500 still on the car. I purchased it three years ago with 32,000 on it and payed for the extra warranty up to 80,000.

    Just want to put this out to everyone else. Still don't know what I'm going to do.
    Good luck everyone!!! Carpenter14 Westland, mi

    Felt the transmission slipping when driving. If you take off from a complete stop it would go and then hesitate then try to go again. I took it into the dealership they said it threw 3 codes and they said they had to replace the wave plate and the clutches. Luckily I purchased the extended warranty or this could have been a costly repair.

    I didn't have any check engine lights on. My car just started doing all those things stated. Not sure what my mechanic is going to say yet. The car is at the garage as I type .

    Transmission started shifting hard a couple of times on drive home from a trip. Then the RPM's started to rev occassionally to 5000rpm. Then the RPMs bounced between 1500 and 2500 rpms. The check engine light came on and we pulled of to the side of the freeway. We tried to go again and it would not shift or go into reverse. Had to be towed in. It is now at the dealer waiting to be repaired with GM assistance since I was out of warrenty.
