#12 of 14 Recall -- Venture Intake Manifold Gasket ???

Anyone know if GM has issued a recall on problems with leaking Intake Manifold Gaskets ??
Searching the web...there seems to be a TON of complaints about this....

Don't freak out...you might be starting to burn a little oil - just keep an eye on the level.
If your intake manifold gasket was going south, you would have found antifreeze in the oil and your AF level would slowly go down.

If anyone is still interested in a response to this question, I ran into the exact same problem (sounds like)...
Oil pressure switch is directly above the starter. Jacked the car from the passenger side and you can see a steady stream of oil coming off the connector into the pressure switch. Replaced the switch (costs about $7 at AutoZone) and leak went away. You'll also need a special socket to get this thing off, so pick that up if you don't have one.
