 Description of the problemFell victim to the pcv valve freezing this weekend and blew out the rear main seal on my equinox. Was leaving the highway when vehicle stuttered and almost stalled into oncoming traffic at bottom of exit. Luckly it gained power back to avoid and accident. Got home and looked the car over to find oil sprayed all over the bottom of the car. No oil lights or indicators came on to let me know the oil was gone from the car. The dipstick was dry and now i'm stuck with a $1600 bill to replace a $30 seal. Car is in the shop to see if the rest of the motor survived or if it needs a rebuild and a new timing chain from the damages caused. I didn't even know there was a service bulletin for this issue but i was told my car vin wasn't involved in the issue. Yet it has the same problem as those that were. Car is already using about 2 quarts of oil every 1000 miles due to faulty gm piston rings that aren't in a recall hopefully the class action lawsuit helps equinox owners with unnecessary expenses. With a known issue like this gm should just replace the motors with a new improved one and save their customer base while they can. Will be calling gm in the morning to get the runaround like everyone else i'm sure.
