They are trying to tell me the engine needs to be replaced as it is porous. Sure doesn't sound right to me as I have rebuild cars over the years and never heard of anything like this. I did read a post that also took 4 time to fix the leak and they said GM finally did an embedded gasket on the oil pan. Each fix takes more than a week and this is getting old.
FIRST: Welcome to the XLR Forum.
There is a thread on oil leaks in the Technical Section. Also, GM Cadillac have a computerized knowledge database with all of the reported repairs for the XLR. So the dealer can access it and garner the best fix for yur situation.
Like you I really doubt that the block is too pourus. I have never heard of any XLR that had to have the block replaced due to a pourus engine block.
Aren't you glad you have a warranty?
Please let us know how this turns out.
If we can help just post again.
