    Default transmission issue?

    Hey guys, I have an 08 silverado 1500 5.3, I was pulling into work tonight when suddenly I lost power and slowed. Felt almost like a flat tire or ball joint fell out. I was only doing maybe 15 mph. Stopped and looked and found nothing. Proceeded to pull into a parking spot and felt a lot of resistance and heard clunking/grinding noise from the rear end. I was able to get into spot. I put it drive again and rolled a foot without the throttle and the resistance stopped me.. reverse there wasn't any resistance just the clunking noise. No check engine light.. no leaking fluids. I am still within the powertain warranty, however I did not follow the gm's service interval in regards to fluids besides oil changes every 3k. It has 62k on it now. What does it sound like to you guys and will gm honor the repair or say I didn't follow the maintenance schedule. Thanks

    It depends on your dealer. If they want to push the issue of dirty rear end dope then they can or they could let it slide and do the repair.
