Question about 1995 Chevrolet Camaro
Had a water leak at the back of the motor and took it to a shop the gay told me it was the intake gasket so I replaced it but still have a leak what do I do now?
If it still is leaking you need to get the heads checked cause the 3.8L lamaro i jus got done with the guy bought a new motor cause he overheated the engine and it was doing the same thing and we checked the heads and they were warped bad and it was cheaper for him to get a used engine than to replace the heads

The 3.4's and 3.1's have a known issue with the intake manifold gaskets. These gaskets aren't really considered "high" quality in any respect. This may not be the exact problem but I'll tell you this much. I had a 3.1 in an Olds and went through three of them in a month. I finally said the heck with it and started my search. A company out of California made a stainless steel and rubber gasket set for the entire top end, except for the head gaskets. We put the new intake manifold gaskets in and vwala, everything was grand. Didn't have a single problem after that.
If your mechanic has some decent connections; they should be able to find the same kit if you're experiencing the same problem as me. My kit was over $200, but still better than forking out $80 for a kit that I would be paying to replace again and again. Not to mention labor costs also.
I'd definitely take the car back and ask them if they will repair it. If it's leaking where they fixed it; they should fix that problem for free. And if you got a GM stock replacement, I know for a fact that all GM stock replacement parts (other than major wear items) have a defect warranty for resellers. So, they can get the money back from the part or get a free replacement if it's a factory defect.
I hope this helps you out bud. By the way, the `90's Camaro's are killer!
