    My trans lines are leaking, how much fluid am I going to lose changing them myself in the driveway?

    I also haven't looked very closely yet, but I'm assuming that it is the same as most cars in that there is only one set of lines?
    Or do I have to check to see which ones they are specifically.

    Its the 6 speed with cooler.

    thanks in advance

    There should be three lines, you won't loose too much fluid maybe two litres. No point in replacing them with the same gm crap, take them to a hydraulic shop, have them cut out the cheap rubber and replace it with some hydraulic hose and proper fittings. Do a bit of research tons of threads about it, they all leak. The jobs not to hard just careful not to loose the clips that hold the lines in.

    onlinetube.com makes em in stainless. I would never buy the GM ones. You won't really loose much, maybe a quart or two.
