Probably the most likely leak point would be the LH side differential seal. Seems that is pretty common among all C5s.

I don't know if the diff side seals have ever been redesigned or not. Anyone know for sure?

No oil leaks, except past the rings. I did have the driver side differential leak, but it's fixed now.

The differential has now started leaking, although oil consumption has for all intents & purposes, ceased-- very little oil use in 1600 miles from 5400mi to 7000mi. This is good...:cheers:

No engine oil leaks here either. Oil consumption is at a minimum now, 8K+ miles. I have just noticed a driver side differential leak which I am having fixed next week. The vette tech told me that was a common problem. He feels that it is due in part to the thinner oil in the differential to achieve a little better performance. Either way, it is getting fixed next week along with the addition of a HallTech SideWinder.
