Re: Puddle of coolant on the garage floor today!

yes 100K.
Try a GMC or Buick dealer. theyll work on these too under warranty.
Call ahead to make sure- but they should. the Acadias and Enclaves are the same powertrain/chassis undeneath

Thought it was oil since that was low, so I took it to Goodyear for an overdue oil change and tire rotation. They told me the oil is fine, but the water pump is leaking. They also found a transmission leak at the right side axle seal.

I assume both of these issues would be covered under the 100K mile powertrain warranty. I'm close to 48,000 now.

Is this a multi-day job for the dealer? I'm not really thrilled with the service I got at the Chevy dealer that will shuttle me to work. I'd rather take it somewhere near home and get a loaner, but they usually fight on that if they are not keeping it overnight.
Plan for at least 2 days if they are fast.

Got it in to a Chevy dealer at 6:00 this morning and they managed to get it done by 5:30. Ended up with a free alignment since they had to drop the transmission, and apparently that throws it off. Summary for future reference:

================================================== ======================
Check for coolant leaking: Installed 12637479: *Pump, Wat; Installed 12346290: Coolant

Trans Fluid Leaking: Installed 88861003: Fluid; Installed 24262198: Seal Kit; Installed 24254103: Plate
Verified leak found from case half seal. Removed transmission and disassemble, replaced 3 5 R waved plate per bulletin. Also replaced both axle seals and front pump seal cleaned all debris from valve body and trans case, reassembled transmission and road test OK.

Alignment
================================================== ======================

Looks like there is some bulletin concerning transmission leaks if that is not already known.

Got it home fine. Next start the engine light was on. Back to the dealer and it is giving knock sensor codes. They immediately agreed to a loaner, so waiting on Enterprise to open.

Re: Puddle of coolant on the garage floor today!

So, two leaks, one coolant and one trans fluid. In one work day they replaced the water pump and dropped the tranny, disassembled it, replaced the wave plate, reassembled it and put it back in. Impressive.

Did they get it fixed or have to order parts?

Replaced the knock sensor and all seems well. No complaints about the dealer (Hamilton Chevy, Warren MI). These are the first functional issues I have run into in 48,000 miles, and hopefully things "come in threes", so I am done. Also hoping an odd coincidence that all three appeared within a few days.

What does a knock sensor do?
