Hey all!

I have been trying to find the source of an oil leak that is setting the oil pan of my 2008 Chevy Malibu classic w/3.5L. The leak is just enough to get a few drops overnight on the floor of my garage but I can’t seem to locate the source. It’s not coming from the oil filter adaptor. I’m just wondering if anyone else out there has had this issue and what was done to correct it. Thanks!

D.K.

If you aren't able to follow the leak to the source, you might try cleaning the entire engine where the oil is wet, then start watching it daily or more often. There are also dye kits that you can use to help trace the source.
