I initially noticed a slight oil leak after the 23K service but thought is was just spillage from putting in the oil. After a few weeks and still noticing a drip spot in the garage, I asked my wife to make an appointment to have it looked at. Well, took it to the dealer today and they said it has a bad engine seal! At less than 25K miles, should I worry? They had to order the seal so my wife will have to take it back next week. Has anyone else had this problem? <br>

Re: Took XC90 in for slight engine leak... (Config)

We had a head gasket leak at around 12k miles. It was fixed and has been perfect ever since. Is that what they mean by engine seal?<p>Tim

I'm not sure if it's the same as the head gasket. I didn't talk to them myself. I guess I'll find out when we take it back once the part gets there.

Our T6 had a leak from day one that they could never fix. Turned that one in as a lemon. Turned out to be where the external oil pump bolted to the block.

Turbo seals (I'll wager). Relatively common on the T6, and easily rectified.<p>Tom.
