The car only has 7200 miles on it - there should not be an oil leak. I just had my oil changed on the 9th at a Jiffy Lube- hopefully they forgot to tighten something- any ideas.

Help!!!!!!!!!!

Somehting else to consider is that maybe they were messy and spilled some oil (the new or the old) into a depression and it's dripping out.

Well- just got it back from the shop. The place where I went to get my last oil change didnt' tighten the filter and drain plug enough - and that was 969 miles ago - I'm lucky I didn't burn out an engine!!!!!!!!

I go to Jiffy Lube every time with my S10, and i haven't had a problem. I don't think i'll take my g6 there though. I'd rather pay a little more and have it done right by the dealership.

Better yet, you can change it yourself...not that hard and saves money. Also allows you to sleep at night knowing that you did it the right way. When I get mine and after I put 1000 miles on the factory oil, I'll do a write-up with pictures for everyone, just so there is one.

If you do decide to change your oil, be sure and keep reciepts and document everything. If a warranty issue arrives, you will have to prove that the proper maintenance was performed.

Man! Jiffy Lube strikes again. Mine already has some very light oil seepage around the PCV valve. I brought this up on my first oil change at the dealer and they said that this was normal along with the body filler inside of the sunroof well with the wind deflector shield clip stuck through it. I am not impressed with GM's quality control on these kinds of issues. It is like one of you have already said. "You get what you pay for!" When you take a car in for repair or maintenance it is frustrating to check behind the mechanic to see if he has performed the work correctly.
