Question about Hummer H3
ENgine light came on, took the H3 to Big O who decided after being at a loss for a whole day my intake manifold had to be replaced. Two days after picking up my H3 white smoke camoe out of exhaust, this happens sporadically and now I'm losing oil internally.. Big O swears it's not their fault, and now says I have to take it someweher else for a diagnostic. Does anyone have any idea? I've been told the gasket in the intake manifold isn't sealing or the part wasn't propeely installed and is causing this problem. I have spent so much moeny and still am at a loss and so stressed out
If the job wasn`t performed properly,surfaces not cleaned properly,surfaces not checked for damage or warpage then yes it can cause oil consumption as it creates a vacum in the engine were the oil is and its sucked up into the intake manifold and drawn into the combustion chamber and burnt causing smoke out the tailpipe.it can burn oil without the smoke being noticed in small amounts until you check the oil level.ususallly a leaking intake gasket will cause an engine to run different,rough idle slow acceleration at times,hesitation as examples.unfortunatly these cars are expensive to repair at times.is this big O a reputable shop or just the cheapest shop you could afford,this could be why they don`t want to check it out and find the problem.
