Oldsmobile / gm transmissions

my boyfriend says that most/all gm transmissions whine. i don’t agree. this is the only oldsmobile car in which i have been in and actually heard the transmission whine on take off until it shifts into the final drive gear. the only car i have ever been in in which there has been a whine was when my chrysler tranny was just rebuilt and needed to be done again because the torque converter was incorrectly put in.

As you already know, he’s wrong.

Your boyfriend is wrong.
