Engine oil leaks....cover under warranty?????

7317 10
I've got a couple of minor oil leaks at the front of the engine. It looks like there behind the covers at the front of the heads.....(timing chain covers??). I only got 32,000 miles so I'm gonna take it to the dealer.

Are these types of leaks covered under the 60,000 mile factory powertrain warranty?????

I can bet you the answer is "Yes."

Oil leaks, not caused by damage, have to be covered under the 3yr/36000 warranty.

Why wouldn't an engine leak be covered under the 5yr/60k mile powertrain? I would think it would fall under the powertrain.

There's a list somewhere on the powertrain parts that are covered, and I don't remember seeing leaks listed there.

he isnt and really didnt state that from the start. Was just wondering why he bumped it after he got an answer.
I just looked in my warranty book, and it says that the valve covers, timing chain covers and so on are covered by the 5yr/60k mile warranty. It doesn't say leaks anywhere that I could find, but if it covers the cover, it should cover it leaking. There are probably allowable leaks on all of these items, I know in aviation almost everything has an allowable leak rate.

hey P.......I bumped it up to get back on the active topics page....just trying to get some different input on the subject.....i'll go easy on the bumping from now on. Also, I put alot of miles on the truck and noticed that it's been leaking awhile. I'm alittle concerned to see these types of leaks with such reletively low miles and I'd like to know if it will be covered later on when the 36,000 mile warranty runs out soon.

Thanks for all the help.
