    My L300 makes a severe clunking noise when driven or even when pushed
    in neutral. Trany fluid all over bottom of car. Is there any chance
    of a GM extended warranty for trany problems? Could this be a drive
    shaft problem, not a trany problem?

    Transmission problems get big fast if you drive it without enough ATF. With
    the L series transmissions, they never bothered with a dipstick so there is
    no easy way to find the fluid level (short of putting the car on a lift and
    removing inspection plug).

    If it were just the clunks, I'd say it was a motor mount. With Fluid on the
    ground, take it to a good transmission shop for an opinion. Maybe you get
    lucky and it is a leaking oil cooler line or external seal.
