Hi there,

did any of you STS V8 owners had some problems with oil leaks on the front part of the engine?

No probs on my 05 for 18k miles.

Noticed on my 06 a very small leak that appeared at about 10K and 4 months of driving.

Just had the oil change done shortly after and they could not identify which seal it may be from. Still there and I am planning on isolating it this weekend.

Again, very minor but enough for me to check into it.

Thank you Cajonkev,
I ask because I`m looking for a new 07 STS V8 but had some problems on my XLR.
They fixed it in Febr. this year and the car was standing almost 4 weeks at my dealer with the engine out of the car. It wouldn`t take that long but they was waiting for 20 screws (each $ 10.00) all the other seals and stuff was there. After the screws came in from the US my car was fixed in one day.

Not any problem since then:thumbsup:

Thank you again

Yes, 2005 V8 STS w/18K, leak was repaired. Not to mention rear differential fluid leak at 12K. Not exactly quality control, these little glitches may drive me away from GM for good

my rear end blew after 6k miles on my 06 sts V6...

the fluid poured out on my driveway and i had to have the car flat-bedded to the dealer...

ive had more problems with this car then my 91 mustang...

im definitly not happy with cadillac...
