Maybe you can post them at a photo hosting site somewhere, like Flickr, and link to them. Then future owners will be able to find them without having to try to track you down.

More issues with my 2002 RDV. I am replying to my initial post from 6 months ago to refer to how quickly and possibly connected these issues have been. Transmission fluid is now leaking from my car. It seems to happen at the time when the car is started. This started on Friday. As you can see in my original post that I had to have the transmission replaced less than 2 years ago, along with the transfer case and a new radiator ($6,000) and then the head gasket issue in January (6 months ago). My question is.....is this new leak related to the previous repairs as I believe this should be under warranty and taken care of. Seems like a seal was not up to par, but that's just my opinion. Can anyone tell me if this should be the responsibility of the dealer?

Could you please send me the pictures as well or post them somewhere. I have a 2003 Buick Rendezvous and I'm having the same problem.

OK...i have 2002 CX with about 100,000 miles and it overheated, had all the hoses replaced, flushed, etc, $1,100 BILL ...then started overheating again..they told me because it overheated once (which as soon as the red light came on I pulled over). that it now needs a new head casket at $2,750! WTF? Really, I think I will just go buy a new car and it will NOT be a GM!!

#113 of 137 Engine compartment design

Yes the engine compartment is the problem! The cooling fans come on but all of that air goes beneath the engine leaving the engine to bath in it's own heat.. Bad design !
I can only send photos via email.. Just correct the dot and at... buddo19ATPTDdotnet
