Oil Leak

Had my 1999 3.0 GTV for almost 2 month now with no problems at all until last weekend.

2 small spots of oil on the garage floor, just in front of the driver's side front wheel.

Took it in to the dealer who said that the joint between the oil cooler and the oil cooler pipes had corroded.
It seems that one of the threads is brass and the other steel.

I got the oil cooler replaced for nothing on the warranty but I have heard this could have been an expensive job, has any one else had this problem.

I still love this car

Re: Oil Leak

It could have just been a loose bolt and the dealer touched Alfa for the work to fit a new oil cooler. I'd hate being the manufacturer - how would they really know they weren't being taken for a ride?
