This video just came out today regarding a potential source of a fluid leak for the 6R80 transmissions.

 






Not only the 6R80 but also the 6R60 transmissions shares the same design..that is why ive installed a deepstick

The above TSB supports why I recommend replacing this sleeve with the first transmission service over every 100k mile interval. It is the most common source of leaks with the 6R60/80 transmissions. It is a $12 part and very easy to replace when the pan is dropped. This is one of those "do it while you are in there" items.
