This bulletin is being revised to add a model year. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 02-06-01-023 (Section 06 -- Engine/Propulsion System).<A name=ss1-958679><A href="http://service.gm.com/servlets/BlobShtml?ShtmlFile=958679&amp;pubid=297&amp;evc=s m#ss1-958679" target="_blank">
<H5>Condition</A></H5>


Some customers may comment on oil leaks at the engine oil cooler.<A name=ss2-958679><A href="http://service.gm.com/servlets/BlobShtml?ShtmlFile=958679&amp;pubid=297&amp;evc=s m#ss2-958679" target="_blank">
<H5>Cause</A></H5>


Minor imperfections in the engine block machined surfaces at the oil cooler interface may allow oil seepage past the oil cooler O-rings.<A name=ss3-958679><A href="http://service.gm.com/servlets/BlobShtml?ShtmlFile=958679&amp;pubid=297&amp;evc=s m#ss3-958679" target="_blank">
<H5>Correction</A></H5>
  1. <LI =1>Inspect for other oil leaks that may be perceived as an oil cooler leak. An oil leak from one of the main bearing cap side bolts may appear to be coming from the oil cooler.
    <LI =1>If the oil cooler is leaking oil, remove the oil cooler from the engine. Use care to remove only the five bolts that hold the oil cooler to the engine block. Refer to the Engine Mechanical sub-section in the appropriate Service Manual.
