    Re: 2002 Suburban

    We drove the suburban to northern Indiana after Christmas. Pretty sure the abs is working. We got in a little snow lucky that one legged pig is so heavy we never had any go problems.

    I think I am going to name this thing the Exxon Val Chevy. It's been leaking and we have been adding. I changed the oil tonight and let it idle for a few minutes after and there were two puddles 1.5 inches in diameter driping off both back corners of the oil pan. Pulled the inspection covers flywheel and converter look dry. What is the most likely cause?

      Is it dripping down from the valve covers? That IS an LS, right? The 4 I've handled in the past few weeks all looked OK in the valley cover area so I wouldn't suspect that. The pans all looked dry, too. Those pans use one of those gaskets with jelly string sealing areas so I'd expect them to hold up well. The oil pressure sender is just behind the left (driver's) side of the intake and threads into the valley cover - that would be a likely candidate, too. All worth a look.

      Referencing the above - I thought you were talking about an oil leak. If so, please disregard my previous transmission.....

        Yes oil leak. From what I have read I think it could be the cam sensor or the rear main cover? Someone said they improved something on the later engines.
