Yes no doubt, as long as the motor hasnt been opened up (1.e cam change etc) and the car hasnt been "tuned" it will be covered

That may be the rear main seal instead of the cooler. If that's the case, you have a few days of shop time coming to your car. Do you have any pics?

There also have been reports of the oil pan developing leaks in that area of the engine, the best thing to do is to take it into the dealer and let them examine where the source of the leak is so that a proper repair can be done.

The oil pan is usually the issue when you see oil dripping on the opposite side of the motor from the oil cooler. Either way, the pan and the rear main seal both are extensive repairs that take a few days to complete.

If the oil pan is the issue, the entire front suspension has to be dropped in oder to complete the repair. If the rear main seal is the issue, the motor and trans have to be separated before they can replace the seal.

Let us know what the dealer has to say.

I have a 2010 SS with under 12,000kms (7500mi.) on it with similar issues.

I had some loose bolts too, and had them tightened, and helped with leak/sweat.
However, still some minor sweat and/or drip around oil cooler/crankcase area, will monitor as I don't drive the car all the time, and it doesn't leak all the time. I eventually will bring it into the dealer to get checked out.

I called GM and they said it should be covered under "powertrain warranty".

I'm up to bat now....took mine in...they replaced the oil cooler gasket. The entire oil Pan had an oily film on it.....I hope it's fixed, we'll see if anything else like the oil pan gasket needs to be replaced

I never fixed mine. I just pressure wash time to time and keep eye on oil. The way I see it is if there is never any on the ground in my shop and oil level is good then it cannot be to harmful. I will get mine fixed when I go with a different block. I do not trust the dealer to take my stuff apart and chase an oil leak. Mine has oil on both sides of pan and on rear main area and film on the front of trans from leaking. So who knows where it is actually coming from but its slow!

I with ya on that.....nothing on the floor......when i go under the car i give it a good wipe. Not letting the dealer touch it as it isnt worth the worry and the headache of what could happen at the dealer. to minor, i leave it alone!

hard to tell from that pic but if not from the oil cooler itself (which sometimes they replace the cooler to get it to stop leaking) , its then would be coming from the back upper part of the pan and running down which you cant even see with the tranny in place
