  • Transmission fluid is usually a darker red color, not sure if it’s just the lighting but that looked more like traditional oil to me

    • @Eric Elton you are the one to talk 🤣 only reason I did that is because you tried to dox me but instead doxed some poor dude that owns cw custom baits lil hypocrite at least I got my info correct.🤣 #moron

    • Usually yes especially it being a Chevy you would typically see a red variant of transmission fluid but it being a specialty vehicle it would make sense if it has a yellow hue color fluid for that specific transmission that is meant to take a beaten it being a sports car might make strads assumption pretty dead on and he probably went straight to assuming it’s transmission fluid most from the smell.

    • @ORIGINALSHOCKS Proven Wrong ey

    • Proven Wrong ey

    • Hopefully all you idiots feel pretty stupid for giving him shit but you were wrong!

  • There's honestly super easy solutions to these problems. I'm surprised you have made it thus far haha all love

  • Now that the Lancia has been there, you can basically say the coolest car in existence has been in your house

  • All you have to do is hold the engine start button for about 10 seconds and gets into tech mode which allows you to put it in neutral with any gm vehicle

  • I love how you can make the best out of a bad situation, also that lancia is dream status

  • Check the fluids via dipsticks. Add which ever is needed and get it moved. It will leak slowly enough you can drive it a bit. Like a tire with a slow leak.

    • Under warranty and I know it comes with roadside assistance call them to come out to your home.

    • @Tes Barnett Would Chevy have organized a special service team in the state of Utah for a grand total of 1 Z06 in the state?🤔

    • I've never seen a car that isn't a truck or a commercial vehicle with a transmission dipstick

    • it probably wont have a dip stick all new cars mesure fluid via the car sensors and in the data system

    • Dude he blew the front seal...That thing would bleed out any fluid you put in there in less than a minute. Just a P.O.S. Chevy

  • You and Shmee are great together, I’d pay to see that show!

  • U should have a plate made to cover the crack between the lift an floor kinda like they have on a loading dock , so a couple pieces welded to go down in the crack an flat plate to go across

  • If you turned the C8 on and switched it into neutral and pushed it, it shouldn't mess anything up. Yes, the gears in the trans are moving with no fluid, but not long enough, nor fast enough to effect anything. Then you would've been able to push it on the elevator and back off into the garage.

  • hey james just wanted to congratulate you for coming so far! with the house and the cars i've been watching for years! keep up the good work!

  • To clear the gap, you could use a flat sheet of metal designed to bridge gaps like that. They are commonly used when unloading trailers onto loading docks at stores.

    • @kutepanda!! lmao your life would be better if he existed. Weak minded people need something to look forward to because the unknown is too scary

    • @LikeABawzs Best day of the week but just not for working haha.. It's all good, cheers.

    • @john doe ah yea i did. My bad. Fridays am i right.

    • @LikeABawzs you must not be able to read because you read what I wrote wrong

    • @john doe Well if its RWD, good luck pushing the car when it is on the front dollies. Then the rears wont move. So it will be stuck half way onto the elevator.

  • The first thing in my mind was that now it's going to be so difficult to get an epoxy floor to really stick to the spot where the fluid soaked into the raw concrete!!!!!

  • I’ve had to pause it once you got the wheel dollies. Just start it up and drive it. It’s what the warranty is for!

  • You probable know this by now or have the Z06 sorted out but you can push the start button without touching the break "Hold for 5 seconds" to wake the car up and be able to place it into neutral.

    • He showed in the video doing exactly that and it not going into neutral homie

  • that was really funny guys! Props to Shmee and your friends for pushing around the big yellow lump. Irony: a brit comes to america and ends up pushing an American car around in a garage because it has a tranny leak!

  • Love how James said that he didn’t want to spend 600 on the transmission tool but then spends nearly the same on wheel dollies 😅 such bad luck man I feel for you. Spin class would be unreal. Hope it all gets sorted soon and it defiantly isn’t your fault man. All the best from UK

    • the Wheel Dollies work on every car the transmission tool will only ever be used again if the transmission breaks again

    • Link to the Clip : - They finally released this cs-tv.org/tv/video-2EXjRrTzTgQ.html

    • @Fast Food Pit Stops only for that specific car

    • @Lovin_NY93 pretty sure the tooi can also be used over and over again...because it's a tool

    • $600 for a one time use part or dollies which can be used over and over again

  • you got my luck with cars, I’ve bought so many brand new sports cars and about 70% of them had problems right off the lot.

  • Thanks for the shout out Stradman, I did talk with Matt and made suggestions of which you did, best of luck. Having my tech look at this video today to see if that was oil or trans fluid...best of luck man

  • Id call the dealer and ask 2 things first. 1) did they put the 2 extra liters of trans oil in for tracking? 2) does the Z06 already come with the 2 extra liters, and the dealer not know, and put it in? Not sure how much is trapped in the pans, but what was on the floor doesnt look like alot more than 2 liters.

  • GM quality at it's finest! 2022-2023 Stingrays do that too and GM is blaming customers! Smart to have it all on video

    • Lol he has ot on video beating the hell out of it before the break in period is over. Real smart

  • How nice of Shmee to fly directly out solely to help Strad with the Z06

    • He want to pick up his amg gt black series before it turn in pink and chrome haha

    • @Shaun bruh, you ruined the party

    • @Dog DeMuro goated name

    • Link to the Clip : - They finally released this cs-tv.org/tv/video-2EXjRrTzTgQ.html

    • @Dog DeMuro you are my favorite offbrand yet

  • Definitely either gear oil (diff fluid) or engine oil. From my experience transmission fluid would be red, unless GM has different colored fluids. The ATF at our my shop is red

  • Nice. Two of the coolest, laid back car tubers in a typical "James Adventure".

    • 👆👆sᴇɴᴅ ᴀ ᴅɪʀᴇᴄᴛ ᴍᴇssᴀɢᴇ ᴛᴇʟᴇɢʀᴀ'ᴍ ʀɪɢʜᴛ ᴀᴡᴀʏ ✍️..

  • I'd like to imagine that shmee was in your backcave the whole time waiting for you to turn on the lights and introduce him.

  • That's crazy to me. I've never encountered a car in my lifetime that required to turn on the engine just to shift to neutral. It's just a gawd damn chevy trying to be fancy. Bruh he doesn't even have access to the shift lock. He has to pay $600...SMH They're no Bugatti, Lambo, Ferrari...SMH

  • Not the day we had planned but have to make the most of it. Now come to visit the UK too!

    • Not a good look for GM right now 🤔 However, how do you 'car guys' know nothing about 'cars?' lol Not knowing your fluids & not searching for the leak is absurd.

    • wow your famous...

  • I can see this happening more than once. You should get a steel transition, something like a t-mold, that can drop in the crack for times like this.

  • Love the two together, so fun to watch!

  • Stradman with shmee at the helm is probably one of the best videos ever... 🤗 ❤️💛💚 U guys

  • Garage recommendation: I think when the red brick is done you should stain the glass where it looks like a house🏠

  • I believe that's motor oil. General Motors trans fluid is a red ish pink color, and that car is very new, so it shouldn't be burnt or anything. I could be wrong though

    • @SJ FK Exactly,it uses a computer and solenoids to shift. Ferrari started that a long time ago with F1

    • And.... wrong Corey

    • @CoreyR Robertson the transmission itself is a manual transmission, the clutches and shifter are controlled by a computer…. Thanks for telling the entire internet you know absolutely nothing about cars. Go back to playing Barbie’s…. Stick with what your smart enough to handle.

    • @SJ FK WHAT, the c8 is only an automatic🤣

    • @Uranium Cranium I’m well aware of how it works, you might want to do some reading and learn about it besides the sales brochure…. Physically the C8 has a manual transmission, which means it takes manual transmission type fluids…. It has a automated clutch. Still has a clutch, actually 2. But it still has a clutch that’s just operated by a computer. It’s NOT an automatic transmission. It doesn’t have a torque converter or anything else a automatic transmission would be assembled with.

  • It would have been quicker too. Atleast you could have got it into neutral.

  • I know there's a lot of things i could comment on, like how turning on the car with your foot on the break wouldn't heat up the transmission at all which in turn would cause no damage. But that supra in the corner looks so gorgeous, corvette is nice and all, but the supra is another ball game.

  • If you still need it out. Take the front wheels off the dolleys and roll the front wheels onto the lift. Obviously the back wheels wont move cause its not in neutral so maybe youll have to make a small ramp for the rear dolleys

  • Hey. When you tried putting the covert in neutral, I did notice that you did not put it for under break. Try that because in new cards, you are required to put your foot on the break to change gears, Try that.

  • The way these 2 people interact as car enthusiasts is insane. I love the energy

    • Talking about that fake energy? Look at stradman on other people's video's, he's a completely different person..

    • @FORD PREFECT🔷 I mean, they obviously do know stuff about cars just not the technical stuff. Your concept of a car enthusiast is false

    • @FORD PREFECT🔷 I agree thats the only insane thing about this banal interaction between these "car enthusiasts" lol can we stop fangirling ever?

    • @FORD PREFECT🔷 I didn’t say they are mechanics and they didn’t say so as well. They just like cars. What about it?

    • You mean 2 'car guys' who obviously know nothing about cars????

  • double push the start button without your foot on the brake and it should let you switch gears

  • 1 thing you missed when building the house is a heated drive way

  • I work at a gm dealer and we have received a brand new c8 off the truck with a trans leak plus have had 2 more customer cars that had a trans leak basically there is a service cover on the transmission that is leaking which is not yet serviceable separately so we have replaced 3 transmissions in the last 4 months due to this issue so I believe the zo6 is experiencing the same issue

  • U need to do a video on the supra, like change the colour, add a new wing, or make it louder

  • Being with Sheeme , Strad sounds more British than he ever could 😂😂

  • Get a steel plate to bridge the crack from the lift to the floor. Roll corvette onto the lift. Have Chevy flatbed tow it back and fix it. Simple Dimple. Lowes or Home Depot should have flat sheet steel or aluminum.

  • Probably just a loose connection on a transmission cooling line...I will keep my fingers crossed 🤞 for ya.

  • Hey James, just an idea of how to get the corvette out of the bat cave, couldn’t you put a long piece of wood in the crack that’s between the elevator and the floor and just make it level and just have two people on each side holding the wood so the wood doesn’t fall into the crack and so you can roll the car over it

  • The whole Chevy team gonna be on this first thing Monday morning…oh boy

  • Chevy has specific guidelines for breaking in the engine on this exact car. I wonder if that had something to do with it

    • Congratulations 💥 You have been randomly selected among my Christmas🎄 giveaway winners 🎉Hit me up 👉 to get your prize.

  • You could cnc a metal “ramp” to get it on to the elevator, one that widens and dips down into the gap of the elevator but remains mostly flat up to and over the gap

  • It sucks when stuff like this happens, but it sure is entertaining.

  • Can we take a moment to appreciate how James always makes us happy even during the worst times 🙃

    • Link to the Clip : - They finally released this cs-tv.org/tv/video-2EXjRrTzTgQ.html

    • because he is monetizing this problem and will profit off of it lmao

    • Cringe

  • Since when does he have these gems in his garage, the BMW M3 and the legendary Lancia. I think the content should be more about the Cars

  • Invest in some good wheel dollies that expand and jack the car up. That way your not depending on having room to jack the car before putting that kind under.

  • Its an automatic the trans holds way more fluid than whats son your floor theres still fluid in the torque converter and it wont kill the trans as long as you qrent driving long on it

  • you need the ignition on without the engine running to put it into neutral? This is how we do it. 1. Foot OFF the brake 2. Press and HOLD Start button for ~8-10 seconds 3. Lights and chimes will sound and it will be just like the "old days" of key two clicks forward in the On/Run position 4. Release Start button 5. Press brake and shift into Neutral 6. When done, move back to Park and press Start (no foot on brake) to get out of the service mode (if you don't do this the car will stay on until the battery runs out)

  • It's fairly new, maybe just check the seals or some damage on the oil pan. There might've been some issues during shipping

    • Not supposed to race the car untill 1500 miles..not the cars fault..

    • Like the tow service driving it like they stole it 🤫

  • The c8 has had transmission problems and now this, this is just hilarious

  • Pretty much every car has a way to put it into neutral. In most cases if you pry up the gear shift plate you should find a neutral safety switch that you can disconnect and put t in neutral with out turning on the car

    • He said how to make it happen & he doesn't have the key!

  • As long as you don’t put it into gear it won’t mess with your transmission

  • Way sad about the Z06, at least you have good friends to help out!

  • Great to see you and Tim making content. You definitely need to come to UK

  • Hey James I know that from working on vehicles transmission fluid is normally red I don't know if they changed it or not but that look like motor oil to me too thick to be transmission fluid

  • Pretty typical GM quality. I feel sorry for people who pay dealer price gouged prices for these

  • You could have just added transmission fluid Just to get it on the elevator

  • Yo Strad! Make a home depot run. Grab a thin sheet of steel and some duct tape.

  • use some sort of like plexiglass board or thin wood board (or the carpet) to cover the gap in the basement floor to the car elevator and hopefully you can push the wheel dollies over and onto the elevator. Or, try and fill the gap with a temporary item. Having a technician come to you might be a hassle but hopefully this idea works.

    • Link to the Clip : - They finally released this cs-tv.org/tv/video-2EXjRrTzTgQ.html

    • P.s. nice spelling in the name.

    • Great idea but pretty sure he’s going to Chevy and grabbing that tool which allows the car to go to neutral.

    • wood wedge imho

    • @Caleb B plywood would be too think I think for the little wheels, a sheet of metal would be better imo

  • I always thought that all cars had to by regulations have a manual automatic transmission gear override release to move cars in emergency situation?

  • You surely need someone to clean up the garage every day .... I’m giving up myself to fixed that for you hopefully you give me theJob always bless ❤

    • Thanks for the acknowledgment Quickly massage me on telegrame 👆👆 i have a surprise for you...

  • I’ll bet the flat plane crank vibrations shook a line or plug loose. Like the gt350 had issues with oil filters loosening

  • You have the money to call the dealer and have them send out a tow truck for it. It should be under warranty anyway.

  • I absolutely love seeing you and Tim in an untraditional video trying to problem solve. It’s awesome. It’s probably the best video I’ve ever seen.

  • Bruh… you could’ve just turned accessory power on then push the break and shift to neutral.🤦🏻‍♂️

  • Imagine being trapped with stradman for two full days 😵

  • If you can just get a welding shop to weld a 1/8 thick piece of steel like a T to slip into the gap on the elevator to roll the car on with the dollies.

  • It's under warranty. I would start it and drive to the curb and leave it. Call the dealer and tell them to come fix this $%!+! Or actually check the dipsticks, fill the low one, and drive it out. Yes, that looks like engine oil. ATF in my lifetime has always been pinkish red color. Plus, the smell is a night and day difference from engine oil.

    • but the C8 is a dual-clutch trans and DCT fluid is gold

  • @stradman why not try pushing the zo6 up to the elevator while on the dollies use a floor jack to move the front wheels on to the elevator with the dollies waiting and push from the back of the car using the floor jack to Raise the rear and put the dollies under the corvett once it's on the elevator

  • @Thestradman you could put some of those cardboard boxes over those large games and push the corvettes over it or some really flat wood squares

    • Thanks for the acknowledgment Quickly massage me on telegrame 👆👆 i have a surprise for you...

  • Install sound deadening panels in the garage already. Put them on the ceiling and parts of the wall that don’t have your red brick. Should make a noticeable difference.

  • Kitty litter would clean up that spill in a hour. Its a must to have some on hand. It soaks up the spill and then you can just sweep it in a bag. You wont even know that something got spilled there.

  • I saw some short video with a rolling Jack that has rollers on it that lets you slide the car around once you Jack up all 4 tires. Maybe those are wheel dollies

  • Push and hold the start button for a few more seconds with your foot off the brake. It should put you in accessory mode. That might get you into neutral.

    • I was thinking the same. I even said it out aloud, dumb and dumber those two LOL

    • Right? I did one quick google and I was given simple instructions how to override park with the engine off .... This must be different or just does not work on the Z06 variant... Although I'm not sure about James, I have faith that Tim would have had the smarts to at least look it up and try the C8 "Engine Off Neutral override" sequence.

  • This is why when someone offers you an exorbitant price for a depreciating asset, you take it, should of sold

  • A little late but you could dump transmission oil, start it really quick, put it in neutral and shut it off transmission is probably toast either way James :(

  • I think I speak for all South Africans when I say, Stradman needs an E30 or E36 Beemer and a MK3 VR6 Golf/Jetta🤣

  • James now has a 20x2 Corvette…. 20 wheels… 2 maybe not so driven. Anywho, find some kind of ramp or wedge or something to stick in that lift gap to get the car onto it. Some metal sheet to go over the whole thing or blocks of wood in the gap to fill it in temporarily. Best of luck!

  • Have you tried going into accessory mode by long pressing the start button with your foot off the brake pedal? Then putting foot on the brake and shifting into neutral?

  • Me just looking at my old C5 ... and absolutely LOVING it.

  • I’ve never seen transmission fluid like that lol 😂 looks like engine oil🤷‍♂️💯

    • @john doe Apparently not there C8 expert!!!

    • 👆👆sᴇɴᴅ ᴀ ᴅɪʀᴇᴄᴛ ᴍᴇssᴀɢᴇ ᴛᴇʟᴇɢʀᴀ'ᴍ ʀɪɢʜᴛ ᴀᴡᴀʏ ✍️

    • then you've never seen DCT fluid that is used on all C8 transmissions because it has a dual-clutch trans. DCT fluid is gold.

  • what i would do is i would top off on all fluids so i dont have to worry about it then i could turn it on and move it but not for long i would get it out then turn it off

  • On the bright side, at least the leak wasn’t in the middle of no where or during transportation, safe at home

  • 11:30 that transition tho 🤌🏻

  • Just hold the button for 5 seconds it will put the ignition to the Run position without turning the car on just make sure your foot is not on the brake!

  • Shmee really poped up out of nowhere 💀

  • Double click the ignition without pushing the brake, then select neutral…

  • I love that James is always positive even know something bad happened

    • Jesus Christ is our savior, he died on the Cross for our sins. Putting your faith in Him is the only way to get to Heaven when you die✝️🙏

  • Just make a small ramp for the dollies to get it on the lift

  • If you hold the start button for like 6+ seconds or something it will go into service mode and you would have been able to put it in neutral from there

  • 3:55 if your wheels can’t move put them on Capacity Vehicle Positioning Wheel Dollys you should have those anyways

  • Solve: take some piece of wood or plastic (or something that can hold the weight) and put it over the gap so the wheel dollies can clear it. Then u can lift the car with the elevator and get it fixed.

  • American build quality 💪

  • Gotta click and hold the ignition button to get it to go to run then go to neutral

  • Could have just got those wheel dolleys and place them under the wheels... Edit: Looks like that's what you tried lol. It would have still worked if you tried it even if the tires are too wide
