How did you know that the fluid has leaked from the struts? Is it making a "metal to metal rub" type of sound when you go over dips and bumps? Or is a squeaking? I think my struts have leaked out as well, but I'm not sure.

You know it's funny that over http://www.ls1gto.com/forums/showthread.php?t=83970
ther are at least 30 bro's with the same problem. WTF??? I am only reporting this as the number of failures exceeds the # reported at the NHTSA site. As I stated previously my GTO had a build of 02/06. On a more positive note my dealer confirmed today that my struts were in and ready for install. I will post up tomorrow as to the outcome of the repair. For the record this repair has cost me so far 4 hours of income ( $92) so I am not happy. I have to take at least another 2 hours ($46 lost wages) again on thursday to deliver the car to the dealership for the warranty repair and then pick it up after work. I've seen threads on other GTO sites that say that we are whiners (with the strut problem) and all I can say is "How would you feel about this"??? My GTO is killer and I just want GM to admit to the problem at hand.

Very common in all cars - it's called heat soak. The engine block is still much hotter than the coolant when you turn off your engine. Without the water pump running and the radiator able to dissipate the heat pulled from the block via the coolant, the coolant temperature rises. This is one reason you'll see warning stickers and notes in your manual about automatically starting radiator fans that can engage after the engine is off.

This has nothing to do with your key, it's just that your key in the ignition allows you to witness a completely normal phenomena (especially with aluminum blocks - much lower heat capacity and higher thermal conductivity when compared to cast iron).
