Oil change place tells me that there's a fairly significant oil leak on my Blazer. Had it inspected by a service shop who determined the oil filter adapter hoses were leaking. From what I hear, the aluminum crimps in the adapter break from thermal cycling and then you get a leak. Replacing the lines involves slightly jacking up the engine to gain sufficient clearance to remove/install the hoses. I've had it replaced once and it's already leaking again (as of 10/23/14.)
