Small leak, no perceptible oil under the car, or out the exhaust. As noted, advised on routine oil change. A local Chevrolet dealer, (no Pontiac, right?)- relplaced the oil sensor-wasted $150 beans. My son has the same engine, and has lost a quart every 1m miles-47m now, and problem has existed since 30m, and multiple trips to the original dealer. I plan to take the info obtained from this site, (thx), and, finally, get this fixed-will advise results....

crankshaft seal leaking
I was not even aware I had this issue, I brought my car in because the coolant reservoir tank was leaking and they told me I had an oil leak from the crankshaft seal. I had no indicator of this happening. The service warranty I purchased with my vehicle covered this repair in its entirety.

I have burned oil since 78k miles. But dealership advised It was not enough to be fixed under my warranty. Not today I noticed oil on my driveway. So I went to get an estimate and I need rear main seal set, crankshaft oil seal, timing cover gasket and oil filter adapter gasket so I am being told. This car is junk !

Diagnosed during a routine oil change at the dealership.
I found the oil to be leaking and burning on the exhaust. The oil is coming from several places: Front main seal , oil filter adapter, valve covers, and a couple of places at the intake manifold. The worst place is the front main seal. I am wondering if the PCV is working properly.. If I am getting high crankcase pressure this would be causing the oil to leak from any place it finds a way to relieve pressure.

Head Gasket leak, a couple of thousand miles ago had an oil pan gasket leak! This car has low mileage and is garage kept. It totally appears GM made this vehicle to last till the warranty was over and then everything goes wrong!

It leaked out so much oil that the oil change light came on. There's no heat & when I turn the car off the fan is still running to cool off the motor.

I have a 06 Pontiac g6 that is leaking alot of oil from the front of the engine. The car starts up fine and drives ok but after driving for awhile it stalls out when in drive. The time after driving varieties. After it stalls out it's hard to get started again but after it sits awile you can drive it again. Im thinking it has a blown head gasket but coolant looks ok.
