Question about 2006 Chevrolet Aveo

What is the gasket on a 2006 chevy aveo that is leaking oil just above the thermostat housing, on the main engine block?

I believe it is the valve cover gasket, but not sure at all

Probably the housing for the filter? Have you tried tightening the bolts on the housing?

SOURCE: the thermostat housing separated, or blew apart

This is a notorious Aveo problem, These are poorly made.You need a new thermostat housing it includes the thermost on the 04-05' Aveo. It is all one sealed part from the factory.The original part is made of plastic. Chevy has an aluminum one now that won't break but it's MSRP price from the dealer is $91.78 got one and put it on my mothers car works fine now. So you can't just put a new thermostat in it you need the whole housing which already has the thermo. in it.

SOURCE: how to replace valve cover gasket 1998 chevy malibu

The first step is to remove all the parts that are in the way of you being able to remove the valve covers. (Ex.: air intake, loose wires etc.) Then you will need to remove your valve covers (using basic tools) and be very careful to not let anything get on your lifters, which your valve covers protect. Once you have the valve covers off compare the new gaskets to make sure they are the right size. Then remove the old gasket and replace with the new one using a high temp gasket sealant (available at any auto parts store) to attach the gasket to the valve covers. Then tighten down snug and check for leaks after replaced.

SOURCE: how do you change an oxygen sensor on 2006 chevy aveo

There is a special socket for O2 sensors which allow the wires to stick out and not get twisted up. It's not expensive and available at most auto parts stores. Disconnect the sensor from the wiring harness, with the plug and then use the socket to remove and replace the new sensor. Re-connect electrical plug.

Are you referring to the top radiator hose that goes into the thermostat housing? If so then yes you have an o-ring seal on the bottom of the thermostat housing.

Why is my 1992 cut;*** leaking oil already replaced head gasket could it be leaking from the block?


Hello Tina,
The most common ENGINE oil leaks come from a valve cover gasket, a front or rear main engine seal, a timing cover gasket/or seal, oil pan gasket/oil filter/housing/drain plug, or a faulty sensor. If you can't see where it's leaking from the topside, have it hoisted for further inspection.
Good Luck, i hope this helps & thanks for using FixYa.

2006 chevy aveo. the dipstick reads oil is full. but there is oil in the spark plug holes.did the mechanic overfill last oil change. that was 4000kms ago. dipstick still reads full oil


You have oil in the plug holes because the seals that are supposed to keep oil out are leaking-you need to remove the valve cover to replace them.

Its easy. I did mine about a month ago. You need to take off all the bolts on the top part of the motor. there are some tubes on the left side of the motor by pushing them out of the way... you take the old one off and replace it with the new one making sure its aligned and the you put it back on.. the bolts need to be hand tightened kinda as tight as you would do your tires.

You need talking with the parts guy at the GM dealer You need the "new" style thermostat housing to be able to change just the thermostat. So I ordered a new thermostat housing assembly. Here is what I got, a new aluminum two piece housing and thermostat. Hopefully tomorrow I can get this car back on the road and out of my shop.
