Drop pan and change fluid. You "should" be able to get it out of park with the key in ACC, the solenoid comes on with the key fully on (running) while the anti theft cable is only with the key off and out. Of course all this stuff can get

Cost would be my primary concern. Mobil 1 0w-40 might be your best bet in that regard. Up here, where we don't get M1 0w-40 in five quart jugs, the Castrol would be the cheaper option.

GM doesn't own BW. Tremec/BW transmissions are used in a variety of makes including Ford and Chrysler. Aisin is 30% owned by Toyota. GM makes their own automatic transmissions, just like Ford. Hence GM Powertrain.

I am under the impression that Aisin (Toyota?) and BorgWarner (GM?) make more reliable automatic transmission than their competitors (i.e. Honda, ZF, Chrysler). This seems to be at least the common perception in the last couple decades. I would imag
