2024 3500 oil leak


Recommended Posts

Anyone think this is the infamous oil cooler leak. I’ll be taking it in but curious what anyone here might think. I did my first oil change about a week ago and noticed oil accumulated on bottom of trans. Wasn’t quite this bad. I cleaned at all up and had it spotless so i could keep an eye on it. 
 

just got back from 800 mile trip and this was the result. 
 

it’s not bad enough to drop. Garage floor is spotless. But it’s dripping under pressure and has gotten on the oil pan and underside of front edge of trans. Most is there next to oil filter.

One could hope. So far, gm customer service indicated they’d be no help other than just relaying statuses. Not quite sure how echoing my service adviser helps, but i guess that’s their thing.

This that a part that’s available like on rock auto or something?

 

Why is every single part “back ordered” for weeks or months now? I certainly don’t remember this as being a thing pre 2020. Not widespread like this.

I think youve noticed that their involvement is symbolic at best. Between the lingering supply chain issues and the strike things have been spicy.  Be sure and use the words "galactic backorder" they really dont like that term.

Its been a steady slide, 2020 made it more evident. I fought with Ford back around 2011 on a part that took one of our ambulances out of service for several months. We were lucky that we had 2 spare trucks but it put a significant dent in our maintenance program due to the shortage of the truck. The Chief was not amused but there was nothing I could do.

33 days in the shop out of service with no indication a part will ever be available. I called in for an update and was told my service advisor is no longer employed by the dealership. Never received any call from anyone to let me know. It’s a complete flustercluck. 
 

RV is stranded 400 miles away and i have no alternate means to get it home. Professional grade my ars.

What do you mean by "out of service", is it torn down? For no more of a leak from your picture, I'd of picked it up after the first week of waiting. Check oil every morning and run it. Throw a collapsed amazon box under it when parked in garage. 

 

No excuse for what you are going through.

I assume that's my issue as well. I went to do my first oil change yesterday and the tech asked, "who did the last one"? I replied nobody, it's never been done and he replied BS or you have a bad leak and you need to go to the dealer asap. Well, I looked and there is oil everywhere. I have to assume it's the oil cooler as well from the looks of it? My oil level was not too bad he said.

Looks like it.

 

Mine has been at the dealer 45 days today. I was told a week and a half ago that the part was finally being delivered 🙄

 

I didn't press the issue and just assumed it would get fixed and I'd be on my way. Clearly, that did not happen.

 

Good luck getting a part.

My truck was repaired about a week ago. It was 30 days in the shop waiting on parts.  Be nice to your dealer 1. It's not there fault and 2. They have more pull getting parts then you do.   My local dealer had 7 waiting for parts.  3. Open a GM customer care case and you will at least receive GM credit points you can use for service latter.
