I did some maintenance yesterday. Oil/filter change, fuel filter renewal and air filter renewal.

I spotted this way back on the driver's side splash shield:

I also saw some leakage at the intercooler outlet:

When I pulled the plastic shield off I spotted this at the inlet to the intercooler:

As the title states, I'm leaning towards an oil leak in the turbo. Does this look familiar to anyone, any known problem?

I'm at 49K and running well with no issues or oil consumption.

I have 48k and my rear main seal is leaking. I'm taking it in tomorrow for it.
What kind of oil have you been running?

Brand, grade, viscosity, please.

Plus, what have been your oil change intervals?

I've had all my service done at the dealer so it's the dexos. Today would have been the first time changing it on my own but I didn't end up doing it because of the oil leak.
Also I always change it around 15-20% on the oil life.

I'm doing an oil change this week. I am going to take a good look around to make sure no leaks have popped up on mine.

Karik06, any update on this? Did you bring it back to the dealer? What did they say?
Sorry i dont get on here much, it was the dipstick tube that was leaking. Got it fixed last week because the part was on national back order. I didn't have a chance to take a look under the car and see if anything is leaking because its back at the dealer today because my DEF tank is leaking! FML this car hates me!

Glad the oil leak wasn't any thing major. Good luck with the leaking DEF tank. You are the first on the forum to report such a leak.

Hey Karik06,

National backorder! They either didn't think that they would need any or a whole bunch have failed in short order. What happened to your dipstick tube? Was it split, stripped or what?

They didn't say what happened to the dipstick tube. All they told me was it was leaking. This was the first time i did the oil change myself, I hate to say it but I don't think they would have said anything to me about it if I didn't notice.

National backorder isn't really backorder. It just means the dealerships are required to call GM TAC to get parts released. I believe they are closely tracking parts failures to hopefully make improvements in the future, as well as increase the likelihood that the right part is replaced on these cars that the dealerships often know nothing about.
