Sometimes the shop will put a sticker on the fan/radiator shroud under the hood. Or, they'll put it on the driver'* door edge or door jamb on a service tag (like the old style oil change stickers). If it was done at a dealership any GM dealership can tell you if/when it was done based on the VIN. Check with your dealer.

Heck....I can stop by Elhart for you tomorrow since I'm in Holland today and tomorrow!

PM me your VIN. The one and only recall I had on my 99 is for the fuel pressure regulator. I just got that replaced last week. Been solid for 6 years!

The sooner the better. Your mileage isn't too high yet, so you'll probably be ok. Its when people wait like 80k+ miles to do it that it becomes a problem.

I remember people quoting 75-90 or so being average depending on repair rates in your area.

I'll be doing this in spring most likely. Heck maybe get an aux tranny cooler with a thermostat while i'm at it.
