Chevrolet Malibu Engine Oil Leak From Front Crankshaft Seal

(5 reports)

Vehicles with a V6 engine may develop an oil leak from the front crankshaft seal. Our technicians tell us a revised front crankshaft seal is available to correct this concern.

Engine started leaking oil at about 54000 miles when car was 9-1/2 years old. The shop I use diagnosed a leaking front crankshaft seal and said it was a known problem. Replaced it with a revised seal. No oil leak issues since. -
Oil started leaking, and took car into the dealership where it was purchased. The dealership sent it to the GM dealer to get diagnosed. The car will be fixed at the GM dealership. Thank God for warranties. -
