We are the owners of our very first Saturn Outlook XR, bought it last Saturday. The first thing I did was put in a K&N Air Filter. When I did the tube running to the throttle body had a puddle of oil in it. Is this normal? I cleaned it out, throughly. and will check it once a week, until I get a warm and fuzzy.

@Charlie B, I just wanted to follow up with the post about the oil in the throttle body of your Outlook last month. How are things going with this and how are you enjoying your Outlook?

The oil in the intake galley is "normal", based on the sheer number of comments I've seen on all the Lambda forums - of course, from those owners that actually know how or have the skill level to remove the intake. :thumb:

I asked my dealer (Seaview Chevrolet in Lynnwood, WA) about the oil in the intake, and they said, as I expected, "It's normal".

Frankly, GM Powertrain Engineers should be embarrassed about the 3.6 liter's propensity to dump oil into the crankcase ventilation system. Especially with the '09MY+ with DI, this oil coats the intake, including the back of the intake valves, which doesn't help fuel economy. Trouble is, when is this blow-by considered "excessive"? Nobody in the know will fess up...

@ Michelle, I check it once a month and all is well. I don't think it was ever looked at by the previous or the dealership that I bought it from. We are enjoying the Saturn Outlook XR very much.

I have exactly this going on and now interested why it's mentioned this is "normal" and "mentioned at various other lambda forums..." Now I'm curious to understand the cause and if there is anything to be concerned about.. or is this something I have to be aware of everytime I do an oil change.

Owner of 2008 Outlook Saturn.
Thanks,
Reuben
