Re: mid case reseal tsb
I don't have them in text form - I use the Alldata TSB lists and print them here at home. Maybe some online source for "GM TSB download" ?????
Lower end leaks and procedures - #03-06-01-027A of 05/01/08
Sealant usage - #05-06-01-010B of 09/25/07
Higher than normal oil consumption - #02-06-01-009C of 10/23/03
The lower end - oil pan and halfcase - basically invoves discarding the original formed silicone seal and using the newer GM or Permatex UltraGray RTV sealant in a bead that stands slightly proud of the original seal groove, surfaces well cleaned with lacquer thinner and lint-free rag. Follow the sealant tube and specific engine oil distribution plate and torque procedures.
EDIT: Chris at Rippy Cadillac may know of later TSB changes to these effective dates ...........
