And to clarify, GM did specify Dexron VI to be used in all former Dexron III applications. I take stock in that, especially with it being a GM application.

Have codes scanned. If there is an adaptive shift code set, I may be good to drop the pan, change the fluid and filter, and install a shift kit. That could get it if the PCS is the issue.
