Look around the sides of the motor. Aleros are famous for faulty pan gaskets. Ours has been in the shop twice for this. If the mechanic doesn't get it put in just right it will continue to leak.

Hello Taz..might check the converter to make sure the exhaust system does not have excessive backpressure. Also make sure the electronic cooling fans are cycling...they should kick in and out. They are tied into the A/C system circuit with a relay.
The 3.1L and 3.4L V-6 Engine (VINs J, E - RPOs LG8, LA1) were known to have intake gasket failure. This was due to a bad gasket that was designed by GM...it had nylon in it...Over 400,000 of these were sold in Canada alone. The gasket has since been redesigned and torque specs recalculated. If you replace the manifold gaskets follow these guidelines.
Install a new design intake manifold gasket. The material used in the gasket has been changed in order to improve the sealing qualities of the gasket. When replacing the gasket, the intake manifold bolts must also be replaced and torqued to a revised specification. The new bolts will come with a pre-applied threadlocker on them.
An oil leak may result if the vertical bolts are not tightened before the diagonal bolts.
Diagonal bolts may require a crows foot to tighten.
1. Tighten the vertical lower intake manifold bolts (1) to 7 N.m (62 lb in).
2. Tighten the diagonal lower intake manifold bolts (2) to 7 N.m (62 lb in).
3. Tighten the vertical lower intake manifold bolts (1) to 13 N.m (115 lb in).
4. Tighten the diagonal lower intake manifold bolts (2) to 25 N.m (18 lb ft).
Good luck...i hope this helps.
