    Motor seized?

    If the oil level is too high, it contacts moving parts in such a manner as air is mixed into it. The result is air pockets in oil galleries, and less liquid oil to cool parts such as piston skirts. The "foam" also sticks in place and doesn't drain back to the pan, and insulates parts from normal...

    What did you do to your GMT today?

    Insurance write-offs / salvage buy-backs, etc. (liability vs. 'full coverage')

    I have always kept the full coverage on my vehicles until the end, if in a collision sometimes if the damage is minor they will repair.

    What to do with '04 Envoy when transmission fails?

    You are at a point that I did not want to be in, I made the hard decision to sell mine before the big stuff started going. I think that you have to fix it, if you don’t you will get nothing for it but if you do then you can make the decision to drive it or sell it to the right buyer. Good luck...
