If interested, I can gve a summary of all the causes and fixes to prevent this for new buyers, and to help cure as much as possible for current owners already at more than a 1000 miles plus.

Just ask.

Happened on my 11 LT. Do yourself a favor and trade that sucker in for an SS. No oil issues.

Thats what I did. The only thing I burn now is more gas, and it's so freaking enjoyable!

Sounds like the service tech needs to find a new career.

I'm interested as well. I don't have a problem, but I don't want to have a problem develop either!

Makes me glad I ditched my 2LT from what you guys are saying. I thought it was a great little engine but I only put 9000 miles on the car. I found the engine to be overly complicated for what it was.

I generally have always avoided V6 vehicles my whole life. 4's and 8's for me. Had one S10 with a 2.8, it was a turd too so I unloaded it at 55,000 miles.

I would never work at a flat rate shop. I cringe thinking of letting those guys work on my car. I don't like how they are always racing against the clock. Doesn't help that they always want you to come get your car and bring it back later when more parts show up, or the times they have screwed up my ride.
