I have 85k on my car. All recalls have been fine, all critical replacement parts have been installed, catch can, trans cooler etc. I've had no problems.
    i gotta say... GM dropped the ball when it came to the rad and tranny cooler lines.
    there is no service bulletin or recall notice for them.

    these aftermarket "fixes" yes will solve the issues, however they are not gm approved, so if by some chance you have a 07 and under warranty then you do any of these mods they void your warranty for the parts of the car that the mods are affected by.
    its like buying a hockey stick cutting it too short then trying to return it because you screwed it up.
    they designed the car, they should be liable for all common issues, especially the tranny cooler lines.
    now, mine is a 03, generally there is a 10 year statute of limitations on most legal clauses, so im sol either way.

    Re: Trans cooler lines pulled out of radiator???

    Hi,

    Had similar problem.

    My car is from 2009. Is the problem occur in this models?

    I parked my car and I smell oil.

    Look under the hood and I noticed little bit of oil in the left corner.

    I wipe it and took the car for cruising. I drove in few modes, easy driving, kick down, manual mode.

    Trans works fine. I opened hood and I haven't notice leaking.

    It is possible for temporary leaking because of high pressure (run hard from junction, spin the wheel a bit)

    Steering fluid and coolant looks good.

    Check the 2 lines at the rad. If there is fluid, the lines are leaking. No if, ands, or buts.

    OK,

    Today I also spent some time with my Caddy

    What I realized, that wasn't trans fluid that was coolant !!!

    But there is no leaking any more.

    But one thing. There is kind of coolant hose joint. I noticed one clamp is broken only 60% of clam cover the hose.

    I think the coolant gone there when I stopped in traffic and temperature increased. (No signal about it on dash board) So I have to replace clamps anyway.

    But is anyone can explain the coolant hoses connections? The join what I'm talking about has two hoses. One is going to the cooler second one to the plastic cover (is this thermostat?) and from the cover to the cooler.

    EDIT:

    Ok I know it is Auxiliary Water Pump mounted for LLT engines
