    Tired of the EUC delay BS...

    I've had it with getting the run-around at GP and there being zero accountability in the EUC system. So, I sent the following to my Congressman.

    Help! GL lost my EUC, closed my account and is trying to charge ME for it!

    Anyone have any tips for dealing with GovLiquidation screwing things up? Maybe an inside contact? Looks like they lost my EUC form for some HMMWV parts I bought in early April.

    Trans fluid from HMMWV air cleaner?

    What can cause transmission fluid to leak from the air cleaner? 1987 M1038, 6.2, 3 speed When it first happened a few weeks ago I assumed it was the "transfer case vampire" and bypassed the t-case cooler loop. So, I know it can't be that. What else could it be? Also, no idea if related or...
