I'm new to the community here.. in brief, after my Lancer VRX died.. I found a gorgeous 2012 SRI Cruze (1.4l Turbo).. high km's, though it was a good deal at the yard. and in amazing condition.
The rocker cover gasket had been replaced prior to it being sold at the yard by the yard's mechanic.
I purchased the vehicle, and noticed oil under the hood, then lots of oil. Back to the mechanic.. re-seated the gasket, and said he actually isolated that it was coming from what I learned was the Camshaft sensor.
He inspected and said he fixed it.. but I'm getting a LOT of oil in the area around there. It does seem that it indeed is leaking from there, however.. seeing as I'm new to these engines... Can just so much as bad seal, or failing sensor dump quite a bit of oil ??
I will attach some pics... I really genuinely like this car, I'd had friends warn me about the potential issues with some of these models..the mechanic reassured me it was a great car, and to not be anxious that it's a lemon.
Sorry to ramble, it's great to find this community.. so many threads out there sh$#ting on these cars, and I don't get it.. this thing feels premium compared to my lancer!
Anyway, would love your opinions on wether a significant oil leak can be caused just by these sensors alone.
Thanks so much everyone!
