@GM leak is still there. No dye, but oil leak. Sick of my truck being at the dealer trying to find it, Especially since GM does not provide a replacement vehicle of same value.

Mine leaked in the same place. It turned out to be the upper valve cover gasket was pinched during assembly. You might want to also check out your high pressure lines on the power steering, they can weep around the crimps and drip a little...

I had the same problem except I was able to track the problem down. I ended up tracking the leak down to the Block heater. Cord and Block heater have been replaced, leak appears to be gone.

I've seen a couple of these at work that have had excess grease on the center hub of the torque converter & it melting out. Those customers complained of leaks on their driveways and we found no oil leaks, only excess grease.
