Over the last few days we’ve been following the exploits of GM World Class Technician Paul Koerner of Key Chevrolet in Middletown, CT., who has been up to his elbows in this leaky drivetrain on a 1999 C5 Corvette.
Here’s a quick recap if you’re just tuning in:
- Day 1 – Visual inspection of the C5’s drivetrain.
- Day 2 – The transmission and differential was removed for a closer inspection.
- Day 3 – Paul goes through the disassembled differential.
- Day 4 – The disassembled transmission is cleaned and inspected.
Day 5 sees TheCorvetteMechanic going through the two different fluids required for the C5 Corvette’s T56 transmission and rear differential. Paul shows the various seals that were replaced, and the sealers used. Next he walks over to the lift where we see a much cleaner T56 transmission back under the car and makes some various points before telling us what’s coming up next.
