RIGHT HEAD GASKET, AT THE REAR, LEAKS A SMALL AMOUNT OF OIL ONTO EXHAUST AND STARTER. HAVE NOT FIXED IT YET.
Had a very small leak when new within the first 5000 miles. Took to dealer and Tec. told me it was leaking from drain at oil pan he tightned drain. Dealership charged me for checking since loose drain plug was not warranty covered. leaked still. At 42000 mile leak has starter covered with oil. I have not solved problem as yet.
