Had coolant leak, now oil leak

Had coolant leak, now oil leak. I've had truck to dealership about 6 times chasing a coolant leak,Degas bottle ,cap, cracked orange hose, still has small leak. But I just noticed there is oil coming out of the back of the block , looks like rear main. Truck has 39,000 with CAI and Straight pipe exhaust.

Me too!

I've got the same coolant leak, passenger side, just in front of the firewall....Dealer has searched, but can't validate the leak....I took pictures, and showed them, but they still can't find it.....

My oil leak turned out to be the ICP sensor......Dealer fixed it under warranty...

For the oil leak, have the dealer put dye into the engine to diagnose the actual location of the leak. For a coolant leak, it's likely the EGR cooler and/or the EGR cooler hose. Good luck.

Took it to the dealer , and they couldnt find a problem. Just like when I was loosing gallons of coolant, and said no problem. As I am standing at dealership waiting for truck, one of the techs notices oil coming out of the tail pipe,NOT SOOT. Dealer is unwilling to help , any advice for me.

Take it to a different dealer. Where about are you located? Maybe we can help you find another one in close proximity.
