Oil Leak From Oil Cooler

When I did the Oil Change I notice Oil close to the filter, I cleaned the area and changed the Oil, recently I decided to take a look and notice oil again...

I read about loose srews on the oil cooler, mine where loose also so I tight them ...Have you had the same problem? It was resolved with that?

Mine's doing it AGAIN! Had it in 2 months ago and they replaced the oil cooler adaptor gasket. I was under the car the other day and noticed that tell tale sign of oil under the adaptor again. It goes in next Monday!

Just picked up the car from the dealer for the oil leak. This time they said it was the oil pan gasket. The oil cooler was o.k. This is the second oil leak on my car, seems a little extreme for a brand new car with only 7000 miles on it.

I don't think there is a TSB but if you have a leaking gasket I'm sure the dealer will replace it. I'm going in for mine next week......and it looks just like the OP's.

Yes, I have seen this one too. I'm beginning to think there isn't one and everyone is thinking this TSB is the one for the gasket fix. Thanks anyway.

when i had mine repaired, they took my wod for it and had it on the lift with the part ready to replace withing 15 minutes. They told me that it has been a big problem and my dealership was well aware of the issue because the silverados/tahoes have the same issues. They just replaced the gasket on mine......luckily, they only had the part for the zo6 motor which is a better one and has silicone edges which makes for a better seal.

No one would answer me and I posted on several threads all saying there was a TSB look in the sticky section , but finally realized they were full of it because there is not one! Anyway, I won't be that way. Here is your part number for the gasket - 15203889

maybe a little extreme for 7,000 miles but ours is leaking and we've had the car 3 days / less than 100 miles....

it's sitting at the dealer right now....
