I started using rear main oil sealant. It slow down the process hopefully it will stop it all together.I also went to a thicker oil.
Just occurred Solution in work once verified. A recent blog reads "Check PCV valve for clogs" before Rear Seal replacement... In Work.

Lower engine case leak... GM should have the good sense to repair the thousands of issues with this engine. Cadi owners should approach as a class action lawsuit to recover expense of this design flaw and expensive repair. If GM won't fix on their own merit class action lawsuits get many issues resolved in America. I mentioned this leak and the service writer immediately explained the cause and EXPENSE! Of the repair. Someone find an attorney, create a blog, and let's help GM do the right thing...
