1995 CHEVROLET MONTE CARLO Z34 WITH 3.4 LITER ENGINE. HAS SIGNIFICANT ISSUE WITH OIL LEAKAGE DUE TO MANUFACTURING DEFECT. THE ENGINE BLOCK CONTAINS A HOLE WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY INTENDED TO UTILIZE A DISTRIBUTOR CAP. THIS MODEL DOES NOT USE A DISTRIBUTOR CAP. THE HOLE WAS PLUGGED BY GM AND IS INACCESSIBLE FOR REPAIR WITHOUT REMOVING BOTH TIMING CHAINS, THE ENTIRE TOP OF THE ENGINE AND CYCLINDERS. I HAVE CONTACTED GM TO REQUEST ASSISTANCE WITH THE REPAIRS WHICH HAVE BEEN ESTIMATED AT $1500- 2000. THEIR ONLY RESPONSE IS TO OFFER A CERTIFICATE WHICH COULD BE USED TOWARD THE PURCHASE OF A NEW GM PRODUCT. I HAVE SPOKEN WITH SEVERAL REPAIR OUTLETS AND WAS INFORMED THIS IS A RELATIVELY COMMON PROBLEM BUT THE ENGINE IN MY VEHICLE MAKES IT MUCH MORE DIFFICULT AND COSTLY TO REPAIR. VIN:[XXX] CURRENT MILAGE 95212. UPDATED 07/30/2012 INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6)
