Hi everyone new to the forum, I think I have the same problem as everyone else here. Just contemplating taking it to the dealership as well. Mine only has 7,700 miles. Love my car but not to happy about an oil leak so soon.

For the most part, yes. The V6 guys/gals get the timing chain/oil burning issue instead.

Thanks for the welcome Red Jewel RS. Just tightened up all the bolts on the oil cooler and all the oil pan bolts that I could get too. Took in for a road test for about 25 to 30 min. I'll check it tomorrow after I get out of work to see if it did the trick. Keeping my fingers crossed cause I really would rather not take it to the dealership.

Having this issue on my 2010 SS, I came home after being out of town for a week and noticed the oil spots under the car. She has been at the dealership since Monday, they have replaced the line, and the gasket. I was supposed to be picking her up today, instead I just got a call saying she is still leaking and they need more time to find out what's wrong. At least I can be thankful they are being thorough. I was told it wasn't covered under warranty. They told me they called GM though and GM said if I paid $100.00 flat fee they would eat the rest of the cost. Any of you had a similar situation with the charges?

Thanks for the info. I thought it should be covered under the powertrain as well. I had them run my vin and the bumper to bumper expired Sep of last year but my power train is still good. Think I will call GM myself and see what they say. Good luck with yours, hopefully they get it fixed and right the first time.

It should be covered under warranty if your car has less than 100k! Noneof these cars are 5 years old yet.

Update: my car is fixed!! No oil anywhere after three weeks! Dry as a bone. They tried the oil cooler gasket first but that didn't work. Tightenede the oil cooler bolts too, still leaked. The second time around they replaced the oil pan gasket. Fixed.

There's nothing wrong with taking it to a dealership. They have certified mechanics and they work on gm cars all day long. It's not a Ferrari

Get it fixed while you have a warranty!

Just got the call mine is fixed going o pick it up and see what the final diagnosis was.

Update: final verdict "internal damage in oil cooler, external leak removed and installed oil cooler and line" this is what the paperwork says.

Glad to here you got yours fixed Blackkaz04. I got mine back from the dealership thurs. they said its the oil pan gasket but I would need to bring it back in 2 weeks because its about a 5 hour job to fix. No very pleased with the back and forth but not much you can do.

Glad to here yours is fixed too HP. I'm just hoping that the oil pan gasket fixes mine cause it seems like it could be either problem, yours or Blackkaz04's. Good luck to both of you hope they never leak again.

oil leak

My 2SS was leaking oil from the oil cooler where it meets the engine. Took it to the dealer and they said that if it is not dripping they will not even look at it. With all the rain here in miami the oil has dispersed around the area. Any ideas what to do? I could try to tighten the bolts and then see.
Thanks
