This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Therefore, drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused Unless it is contaminated or several years old. The epa warns that prolonged contact with used engine oil may cause a number of skin disorders including cancer. You should make every effort to minimize your exposure to engine oil. Protective gloves should be worn when dealing with engine oil. Wash exposed skin immediately after contact with oil with soap and water, or waterless hand cleaner.

My guess is you can fix it yourself if you posses rudimentary repair skills. Dump the radiator. Remove the hose, Take to parts store. Try to describe to them. Take a picture beforehand, just in case. Replace hose, refill radiator. Start engine, put heater on high, top off radiator again, close radiator, check for leaks, that's it. If you are really cautious then you will fill with all water first, check for leaks, dump and refill with proper antifreeze/water mix.

I need to locate the camshaft sensor on a 3800 series ii V6


Here is a link with a diagram about half way down the page that points out the sensor as number 8. It looks like it should be near the oil filter just up and over a bit. There is some good info on this page to that may help. Good luck! Have a great day!

Buick review


Good engine 28 mpg+ hwy. These 3800 engines had upper intake problems and would leak coolant into the combustion chamber. The new ones were re-designed and do not give any trouble. My 90 buick 3800 has 295000 miles on it. If yours is supercharged it does not have that intake problem.
