Dealer has been jerking me around. Replaced the intake manifold gasket once. Year went by, got another oil leak and the water pump went up. Took to the dealership, they replaced water pump, but didn't fill the coolant back up. They alleged to have fixed the intake manifold gasket again. Still getting an oil leak. Checked the problem myslef and found oil coming from pinion seal. Dealership said that it wasn't leaking when I just had the water pump fixed. They charged me to replace the pinion seal, even after talking to the service manager, Chevrolet and gmpp, the extended warrenty provider. After the seal was replaced I notice a hum at 35mph+. dealer says it's normal, even though I've never had it before. I checked the fluid level in the rear, and it was a quart low on oil. Noone seems to want to do anything to help me.
