Engine Cooling problem
2004 GMC Sonoma 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 50000 miles
I have the dexcool stuff in my sonoma and while having my oil changed the tech showed me that my radiator and overflow container had some sludge in it. His assement was that the coolant had failed should be replaced. I am told that GM states that the dex cool is good for 5/6 years or 100k miles. When I approached the dealer I was told that the fluid did need to be changed but it would cost me. I argued that it shoud be covered under warranty as I am not at the limits allowed. They told me that the 5/6 year 100k is for ideal driving conditions.
I told them that is fine, but I was only half way to 5 years and half way to 100k.
So I am interested in thoughts on this, plus any ideas as to what ideal driving conditions are and how would one go about proving that?
have the same problem?
