2010 Colbalt Cracked Pan- or worst case scenario? Sign In

2010 Chevy Colbalt
I usually drive a suv that is significantly higher off the ground. As I pulled out if a parking lot it "bottomed out" front end scraping pavement. I parked on other side of the road for about 20 minutes to get what I needed from that location. Started car and drove 3 minutes to the gas station, left running for about 5 minutes while I completed purchase. Drove the 2 or 3 minutes home. Car drove normal/no issues. Car was parked for 45m-1hr until husband had to leave for work. When he attempted to leave car went into reverse partially down driveway but wouldn't go into gear after that. He reved repeatedly withno response (excessively in my opinion, I thought it was neighbors using chainsaw agian until he came inside telling me car wouldn't drive). There was large puddle of tran fluid where car had been parked.

I researched that night and figured out it must have been the parking lot exit that caused a crack in the pan- fluid drain- failure to go into gear.

Today we put 3 bottles of tran fluid in, attempted to get it into gear- or at least neutral in order to move it out of middle of driveway. There was no response.

Is the issue likely just the pan being cracked/needing new seal and replace or does it sound like more extensive damage to the transmission?

I will reiterate the car drove FINE thru remainder of errands then home, no slipping or hesitation.....

Does it sound like pan needs replacement or additional transmission damage?

Hello,
This trans is a 4T45E, this has a very thin pan, so there maybe more damage, i would have this looked at by a shop. Gary
