Powertrain warranty good?

I found this oil leak in the valve cover gasket area. It's a 2014 SS/1LE with 21k miles. The limited warranty is over but do you think the dealer will do the work under the Power Train warranty?

Good luck.... Good news is that valve cover gaskets are around $15 for 2 and take about an hour to replace.

My friend got a new axle in the last month of his powertrain warranty when he broke his. the dealer ship applied the difference to two new 1LE axles.

It really depends on your dealership.

Thanks.
It makes my case of a new valve cover gasket less major and more likely to be covered. Good thing your friend got that axle fixed in time.
