A pre-existing condition is any condition that existed prior to the subscription to GuardTree.


Examples of common pre-existing conditions are:

  • Blue smoke from tailpipe can be caused by worn piston rings, valve guides and/or seals, and other components that have become worn.
  • Transmission slipping. This could be a result of an internal failure to the transmission clutches, or a weakened seal.
  • Steering and suspension components – Excessive play –  are usually the result of wear, and not caused by an immediate and sudden failure.
