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....

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 !

After spending $600 to fix oil pan/gasket leak, now advised crank shaft seal and timing cover leak. Shop wants another $700!

oil leak ,car want start , electric starter ,brake lamp malfunction, electric power steering assist ,transmission shift cable fracture ,
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.

terrible oil leak

The whole bottom of my car is covered in oil. Mechanic diagnosed. His exact words were "The car is not even worth repairing. I would check the oil often and add it as it needs it until it dies then drop a new motor in it." I will never buy a GM again... My 01 Eclipse GT has no leaks at all and is Mechanically perfect!
