SOURCE: Leaking intake gasket.

What engine is in this? Is it the Supercharged 3800 or the non-Supercharged? The gaskets themselves are not terribly expensive (GM has revised Lower Intake Gaskets) but it would help to know if its the upper or lower intake gasket that is leaking.

Its not hard to replace either, but it is kind of labor intensive and that is where most of the cost will be. If you are confident in doing mechanical work you can do the job yourself easily enough. But I have seen repair quotes range from $300 - 600 depending on where its down and the labor rate for that area.

SOURCE: how to replace a coolant level sensor, 2000 buick century

The coolant level sensor is located on the radiator. If you are looking at the engine from the front of the car it will be on the left side. There will some kind of clip holding it in the radiator. Removed the clip and pull the sensor out. You will lose coolant so try to swap it out quick or drain some of the coolant out. Once new sensor is installed, install clip to keep the sensor in place and reconnect the wires to the sensor. Crank the engine and make sure the coolant level is full. This should correct your problem.

SOURCE: fluttering when letting off the gas

Ignition timing & carburetor adjustments are 2 of most likely culprits here. I would recommend a tune-up at a garage that has someone on staff that still knows carburetors. Too many adjustments to describe, unless you are experienced at them.

Valve cover gasket replacement


You'll have to remove the brackets on the back side of the intake manifold to access the valve cover. Most likely you'll have to remove the spark plug wires, too.

My 2000 buick lesabre is running hotter than usual....looking at the motor i see water leaking from the top of the water pump, right around the intake


An intake gasket leak is a very common problem on the engine in your car, get it replaced and go from there. Be sure to check/change your oil. If it is milky looking, then the gasket is leaking internally also. Hope this helps, TJ

Need to remove and replace the intake manifold gaskets on a 2000 Buick Regal GS, with 3.8 Ltr Supercharged engine. The engine is leaking coolant from below the intake manifold.


it is a great deal of work. The molded gaskets breakdown with time. You'll want to change the two 90 degree elbows as well - they are available from a dealer for a reasonable price. Also, the blower gasket is likely shrunk up and /or blown out. And you might as well replace the valve cover gaskets too as they leak oil as they breakdown with heat and time.

I did all of this on mine. Even as a professional, it took me a good 6 hours.

Erg valve


The EGR valve is located next to the TPS connector. It has two bolts holding it in place. You will need to replace the gasket when you take it off.
