Yes, from all accounts, it looks like all of the sounds that I was worried about are all normal. As I said, I am coming up on having this car for 2 weeks. If there is anything wrong with it, I would like it fixed, but I don't want to bring it to the dealership because "something sounds funny". I like to know what'* wrong before someone tells me whats wrong. I don't have much experience with newer GM passenger cars (never had a SC car) and that is why I asked you guys.

Again, thanks for the help! All seems well.

As I have already said, there is NO noticeable leak. The fluid level has now been steady for the past 5 days and the whine that I am hearing must just be the supercharger.

Even if there is a problem, it'* not like I am going to have to pay for anything to be fixed. That is the best part of a bumper-to-bumper warranty. I just wanted to know if something was really wrong. As it turns out, I really don't think that there really was anything wrong, just a low fluid level that mostlikely was caused by an absent minded mechanic.

Again, thanks for your help and suggestions.
