The notice goes on to state:  

[Certain GM Vehicles] that have experienced high oil consumption may also experience a frozen and/or plugged PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) system during cold weather operation. This condition may increase crankcase pressure leading to a rear crankshaft seal oil leak. If the oil leak is ignored or not noticed, an engine clatter noise may be noticeable and/or the engine pressure warning light may illuminate. If this condition is not corrected, continued driving with engine noise and/or the engine oil pressure light illuminated may damage the engine.

If you’ve taken your Equinox, Terrain, Malibu, Captiva, Verano, Regal or LaCrosse to a dealership for issues above, from engine stalling, abnormal oil consumption, high pressure fuel pump failure, balance shaft chain failure or engine failure, we can help you….
