hey guys.....

brother in law had an issue with his Cobalt today. Started spewing oil all over the place when he got out of work. Checked the oil pan, oil filter all is good. the only thing i found is what is pictured, but i dont know what the heck it is, never seen it before. I couldnt even see an inlet for the oil. But i know its not supposed to be cracked open like that.

See pic.

Im not in dire need for the info, but its just bugging me not knowing what is.




Mid to lower right quadrant btw.

any oil on the driveway? in the engine bay? looks like theres some on that heat wrap.
any? No all of it. He said it started making noises and he drove back to work. You can see the stream of oil on the street, and a huge puddle where he stopped.

I tried googling the oil filter and it said it was towards the front, so Im clueless.

Are we talking about that rear trans mount ?
That is just a protective cover for that mount.
Look to the right of the downpipe, maybe two inches over. Right where the light is shining.

thats a transmission mount. oil filter is on the front right side of the block inside a housing. you remove the lid and the filter cartridge is inside.

this is the opel motor, but its essentially the same. round canister on the front with black lid is the filter housing.

^^^^thats what I got when I googled it.

Still don't know where all the oil came from.

And if it's a tranny mount, is it supposed to be cracked open like that?

Maybe the oil pressure sending unit is leaking????????? I had a G6 that had one start leaking, it was right above the starter, filled up the started, and it wouldn't start one morning in the winter when the oil got thick :mad: Because of this I noticed it before it started spewing oil.

Just a thought.....
