#8 of 21 CHEVY COBALT 2006 OIL LEAKS!!!!!
Mar 19, 2010 (6:48 am)
I have a Cobalt 2006bought it from the dealer with 33.00 miles. so far so good...until now. It has 68.000miles, so my warranty expired. It's been leaking oil for a while, so i took it to the dealer service, and seems THE SILICONE ON THE LOWER ENGINE PAN CASE IS WORN OUT. They're asking me for $1.500 to seal it back, and I'm still trying to figure out HOW COME THIS HAPPENED??? Why do I have to pay for some manufacturing mistake if the guy supposed to seal the oil pan didn't do his job right??? I don't think I'm responsible for this, I am trying to find people with this same problem...It seems it's only my car arrrrrghhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!

My advice is to take it to a reputable local mechanic. Ask friends, coworkers, church people for someone they trust.
I suspect you'll find it's much cheaper to have it cleaned and resealed with a seal or with silicone.

Yea, a mechanic asked for $400 to do it. But I still wonder WHY do I have to pay for something wrong that came up in the car? this is not about warranty. I'd like to know if anyone's had the same problem...

I'm not sure what you're asking then. It's a car. Things sometimes go wrong on cars that are minor. Sometimes things go wrong that are major. You get them fixed and go on with your life.
