I too just took my 2013 Buick Enclave to the dealer for it's 1st oil change. After I got home and parked it in the garage I noticed oil on the garage floor. I took it back to the dealer and the said the oil filter was not seated and it happens sometime. They replaced the filter and after parking it again ,I noticed it was dripping worse than before. I took it back again and after checking it they decided that the oil leaked when removing the filter and sprayed it with engine cleaner and washed it off. So far it is clean. Needless to say when changing the oil filter you must be very careful not to drip oil on the frame.
On some cars this is darn near impossible. I don't know the innards of your Enclave but for example on my Mini Cooper, not spilling some oil seems impossible. But any good shop should clean up the mess as part of the job. A common mistake in oil filter changes is "double-gasketing", where the old gasket is accidentally left on and a new gasket applied over it. That'll leak.
I also have a 2008 Enclave with the exact same problems had the inability to accelerate yesterday (the Stabililatrac service light came on three days ago) while I was on a frozen HYW in MN. Pull off turn the engine off wait 15 sec for the computer reset. That did the trick to get me back on the road.
Did replacing the valve cover gasket solve the problem?
Also did you have a engine warning light on as well?
So here I am again, back on this site with the same problem I paid over $800 to repair less than a year ago. Service Stabilitrak/service traction control lights blinking with oil sludge in the intake hose. The dealership calls and says I need the redesigned valve cover repair that they recommended in July 2013. Well I had the redesigned valve cover put on, but not by the dealership because we all know they charge crazy prices for labor. The repair was done by a certified mechanic with GM parts, but the part has failed. And the dealership says tough luck, GM has no responsibility. What say you GM????????? I am beyond angry and I think I will be calling a local TV station who does consumer protection type segments.
