    The dealers hourly rate should be posted on the service desk wall along with standard charges. We bill the Co a 100.00 hr altho the shop is part of the Co I work for. So the book time for the work performed plus parts will equal the total cost. So if the job says it calls for 5 hrs & the mechanic only works on it for 3 ya still get charged for 5.

    I have mine in a shop that I completely trust(not a dealership) because the fuel gauge stopped working. The bill is $1600, $107 for the part and 15 hours of labor. Apparently to drop the gas tank. you have to drop the tranny(auto) as well. I've read elsewhere that a fuel sensor can cause the problem or a sending unit. The shop I use also gives me a 10-20% discount on the total bill because I've used them for ryears and the owner is a friend. Overall I guess its OK and they 100% guarantee their work.

    The above is bad advice, regardless if the transmission is a manual or an automatic. Both transmission types require periodic maintenance for best durability.

    C6 manuals should have lubricant changes every 3-years or 36,000 miles whichever comes first.
    C6 automatics should have a fluid flush and filter change every 5-years/50,000 miles whichever comes first.

    Also, C6 rear drive axles should have lubricant changes every 3-years or 36,000 miles whichever comes first.

    Hib- please explain the difference between a flush and a change. My '07 owner's manual says "change" every 50,000 miles under "severe service" (sic) and every 100,000 miles under "normal" service. Can fluid be changed rather than flushed (as is back flush)? Also, by "drive axle... lubricant" you mean differential fluid? Also, regarding owner manual service of differential fluid in automatic or manual "gear box", I can't find where they recommend a change. Weird.

    If we are talking about an automatic trans, "flush" means replace all the fluid with new fluid using a machine which connects to the trans and sucks out the old fluid and pumps in new fluid. "Change" draining the fluid in the trans pan and refilling the trans. Fluid inside the converter or in the passages inside the trans doesn't get changed.

    For a manual the terms are interchangeable.

    "Drive axle lubricant" = rear end oil = differential fluid

    GM does not usually list a change interval with manuals, but I recommend 3yr/36,000.

    Also you said

    The Owner's Manual probably did not recommend use of differential fluid in the automatic trans or the manual transmission.

    With respect to an automatic trans, "flush" means replacement of old fluid with new fluid. Typically this is done with a service tool which connects to the transmission and sucks out old fluid and replaces it with new. "Change" usually means draining the fluid in the trans pan and refiling it.

    With respect to a manual trans "flush" and "change" are synomous.

    "drive axle lubricant" = "rear end oil" = "differential fluid"

    in most cases of passenger cars, GM does not recommend transmission lubricant changes, however, I feel transmission durability is enhanced by doing that every 3yrs/36,000 miles.
