In this video you can see the Stradman’s C8 Corvette Z06 has a huge puddle of either transmission fluid or oil. The Stradman James thinks it’s transmission fluid. Rick Conti thinks from his Chevy rep its a possible transmission seal and no the transmission fluid isn’t red.
Chevrolet told him not to start the C8 Z06 in case it is and the transmission doesn’t have any fluid it would blow the transmission. Transmission problems are not new to the C8 Corvette. We have documented others documenting their C8 Corvette transmission problems and issues too.
