    I was surfing this database on my 90 K1500 and found a recall that I was unaware of.

    Anyone familiar with this site or problems of trannys overheating and expelling fluid out the dipstick tube? Check it out..looks to be a good resource for other vehicles as well. I found it interesting.

    The tranny fluid spew out the dipstick is a fairly old recall, I remember first hearing about it almost 10 years ago. I believe the fix was a locking mechanism on the dipstick.

    I'll say it again; TAKE IT TO A DEALER!, they can check the data base and see what recalls may be needed useing your vin number. Also DO NOT FREEK OUT OVER RECALLS!, must of them are YERY unlikely,
    -This is just MY two cents worth- for the record.
