I have a 2014 Trax, there is a small oil leak somewhere behind the heat shield i think? I can see drip on the ngine from underneath and that drip falls directly onto the exhaust manifold and then i can smell burning oil inside the car. The smell has ocurred 3 times in about two weeks. Do you guys know whats back there that would leak oil. It has only 70000 kms on the car.
Thanks

There's a GM bulletin out on that problem and I believe the dealer covers this under warranty. It's the turbo oil feed tube, the revised version has 2 "O" rings as oppose to one to better seal this fitting.

I checked the oil feed line and its all dry on both ends. I can see another line on the back side of the turbo when i look up from underneath the car. I can see a drip on the banjo fitting but there is no way to get at it to tighten or change the seals. Any thoughts on how to get at that line.

Never thought of the return line! Let me see if I can find anything on that one.

It's actually one of the oil cooler lines that's leaking. Never seen a bulletin on those.

Here's a Youtube video of what I think is the same leak on a Cruze. You pretty much have to take the whole turbo apart to get to it.

I bought a '15 LTS AWD last September (2019). I have had my oil changed at tires rotated every 3 months. I have had the transmission and coolant flushed shortly after purchased. I haven't changed the gear lube in the transfer case or the rear differential. I saw a small amount of oil on my driveway today. Engine oil dipstick show almost full.
