Engine Oil Leaking problems of the 2007 Chevrolet Impala



Two problems related to engine oil leaking have been reported for the 2007 Chevrolet Impala.

car   Engine Oil Leaking problem 1
Failure Date: 06/17/2010

I have a 2007 chevy Impala lt I bought it used with 30,000 miles on it. In between oil changes the oil warning comes on telling me to add more oil. I've taken it to the dealership and to other mechanics and cannot figure out what is wrong. They have checked for leaks and there are none. They said maybe the engine is burning it off but they don't smell it. Nobody can tell me what is wrong, so in between oil changes I have to put 1-2 quarts of oil in it. I change my oil every 6,000 miles.

car   Engine Oil Leaking problem 2
Failure Date: 01/03/2010

I own a 2007 Impala lt 3. 9 l. Purchased from sunset Chevrolet in sumner, wa 1/03/10. Not even 3 months after buying the car, the engine oil started leaking, the transmission started leaking, the power steering started making an abnormal noise, and the car needed a brake job. (front and back). Took car to dealer (burien Chevrolet in burien, wa). Was told that the needed repairs were not covered by warranty. We declined repairs as we could not afford out of pocket cost. Contacted general motors. Was told that at the time the vehicle was taken to the dealer, that relevant components were indeed covered by the warranty. Gm was unsure of why dealer had told us they were not covered by warranty. But that the warranty was presently expired, and even though it wasn't when we took car to dealer, there is nothing they can do now that the warranty is expired. Also, the tech at burien Chevrolet said that he could see no signs of the symptoms that we described were wrong with the transmission, even though there was a service bulletin issued by gm on 10/15/09 (06-07-30-023c) which describes the symptoms exactly as we told the dealer. It also contains information neede to repair the problem. Now the transmission is on the verge of breaking down and the engine is leaking oil more than ever.
