Good news! Since they replaced my oil pan gasket it's still dry! Maybe they finally got it! Chins up guys, this is what our warranties are for! Too bad we have these problems though, who would think a brand new car would have oil leaks?

Mine's been done for a couple weeks now. Haven't gotten underneath it to see if it's holding, but I'm not seeing any spots in the garage.

Any idea what the part # is for the Z06 cooler gasket?

Thanks in advance

there are 4 places for an oil leak.

1) Oil Cooler. If the stains or drops are in the vicinity of the cooler, highly likely, oil cooler gasket/o-ring is the issue
2) if the bottom of the oil pan, front and/or back, is coated with film of oil, the oil pan gasket is the problem
3) if there is oil droplets on the center/bottom of the bellhousing, the problem could be either the rear main seal or the rear engine cover porosity issue........or BOTH.

And I have all three.........does that mean I win the prize

To hell with it I'll put oil in the engine before I'm going to tear it apart for a small drop of oil or two.

I agree, if just a drop or two a week, not enough to take to dealer and chance them screwing up something else or getting your car back with dents or scratches that weren't there before.

But if it is something easy like the oil cooler gasket/o-ring, I would get the fixed.

A leak just doesn't go away by itself, in fact, it will get worse over time. The important thing is, get the problem documented with the dealership.

Nope, I have all three and the added bonus of a strut leak.

I noticed a leak with mine yesterday...very slow leak but a leak none the less....I crawled underneath the car and found an image similar to this picture with the leak residue around the oil cooler..Would I be safe to assume that my issue is with the oil cooler gasket? And if so, any chance in h3ll my dealer would fix this knowing I'm supercharged? Is this something I could replace in my garage if my dealer won't? How hard would it be? And a dumb question, do I need to drain the oil before replacing the gasket?

Thanks,
Adam

I inspected mine today and found it leaks by the oil cooler and the oil pan(both minor oil leaks no drops just seaping). First I thought it was coming from the main seal but I removed the round inspection cover to discover a nice and clean inside! I don't really wan't the dealer spilting my engine and transmission apart on a car with only 13k. So I guess I will leave it like that for a while and keep and an eye t'ill it starts dripping on the ground.

After looking at the TSB for the rear cover maybe mine also has the rear engine cover porosity issue, it's pretty hard to tell which is leaking the oil pan or the rear cover. Pretty well in the same area!

do they need to drain the oil to repair any of the oil leak issues? Im just about due for an oil change and ive noticed oil in the past on my pan and lines under it. i wont bother doing an oil change if they have to do one in the process.

Jer, if you haven't checked yet I can always contact your dealer to see if they would need to drain your oil for this repair. I hope this helps. Let us know how things go with your dealer.

Ken

My '10 had drips off the cooler and pan. First repair was ... leak test dye, cooler seals and gaskets, and 1 qt of oil.

Still leaked. Second repair was leak test dye, new oil cooler, new seals again, 1 qt of oil.

Leak then fixed, and I had bright blue oil. I then changed the oil.

So if, it's just the cooler, I'd bet they top off with a qt after the repair. If the
actual pan is leaking, would probably have to drain all the oil for that. But the cooler can make it look like there is leaks all over under there. They will need to use the dye to find the actual source of the leak.
