just found out, my wife had the oil changed tonite, and they told her it was leaking. sounds expensive.
Took to dealer today because I found a 6 inch diameter puddle in the driveway. It was 1 quart low on oil.
They said the front crank seals leaking.
We will have to reschedule for repair.
noticed a oil puddle on garage floor tonight. front crankshaft seal is leaking. have to research repair options
i have an oil leak and it look likes its coming from the driver side in the front of the car, when you raise the hood you can look down and watch it drip. I get the oil low statement every 3 to 4 days to add oil.
Noticed a small oil spot in garage, front and rear main seals were leaking. Chevy dealer is fixing under warranty.
Occasional odor of burnt oil... Couldn't find cause. One day while waiting for someone. Sudden loss of fluid and smoke from oil burning.
Oil started leaking/leaving small oil puddles after driving. Took it to rhoden and they said it was the oil filter. Still leaked after they "fixed" it. I think they knew it was covered under their contract with me and they didnt want to pay to fix it. Still working on getting it fixed.
