I've found no difference in sound with clear tops on either my C7 or my C5 (I still have). Too many other sources of sound all the time, imho. :lol: :thumbs:

If it is not showing overfilled, I'd suspect they just slopped some around in the filling process. But, if it will ease your mind, do check (or have checked) the filter.

Sounds to me lie the dealer didn't want to bother. Good thing the engine wasn't tossed in the rear, too (oh wait... that's the C8 :lol:).

Definitely take it somewhere else... anywhere else! There is no legitimate reason not to be able to find the leak, no matter where it is! Good grief. :crazy2:
