Just bought a 2014 chevy Cruz turbo and it is leaking tons of oil on the bottom passenger side. A mechanic said it needed a new turbo. Replaced turbo and it鈥檚 still leaking heavily especially after highway driving. Before I bought it the head gasket etc was replaced. I was under the impression it was going to be a reliable car. It drives great! But leaks oil everywhere. Any thoughts?

What you are experiencing is a blown valve cover and gasket. I had the same issue. It is caused by a faulty Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) non-return valve in the intake manifold. I had mine repaired back in February of this year to the tune of $1000.00. But, luckily for you, GM is fixing this issue at no charge to you. I just received a letter in the mail stating that GM is aware of the issue and is either offering the repair or reimbursement if you've had the car repaired. I would encourage you to investigate the issue before moving forward, but your symptoms are exactly what I was experiencing. If you feel you need to contact GM for further details, here is the number that was on the letter I received: 1.800.630.2438. You will need your cars VIN. Good luck and I hope everything works out for your vehicle.

Thanks for the info! The guy I bought it from said when they replaced the blown head gasket they also replaced the valve cover and pvc and timing chain. Now it has a new turbo too! It鈥檚 obvious they replaced the head gasket and valve cover it鈥檚 all new. Idk I took it to a reliable shop so I鈥檓 waiting to see what they say in a day or two. But I鈥檒l definitely call the number u posted!
