If your vehicle is leaking near tensioner you possibly do not have a blown head gasket.there is a L shaped plastic pipe right behind the tensioner they deterioate and leak i believe they call it intake bypass tube there are 2 of them one the engine you will need to replace both of them oreillys sell the metal ones which last you get two in the pack they are only about 8 bucks about a 1 1/2 hour from start to finish

You have a blown Head Gasket. Stop driving the car. Only drive the car in EMERGENCYS. You need to check your oil to make sure that you are not mixing antifreeze with oil. If you are, you need to flush the engine and change all of your seals. A head gasket set costs about 75 bucks. But to hire someone to do it is expensive. It might cost you about eight hundred bucks to get and experienced person to change your head gasket. If you want to know how to do this, shoot me an email @ chrisquesenberry@yahoo.com. I can explain to you how to do it.

You should also swap the transmission if the motor is going to be more powerful. Also a new computer will be needed for the swap. If you are looking for an easy swap then just find the same motor.

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.

Too complicated to explain here...buy a Chiltons Manual at Auto Zone or NAPA $25...not too bad of a job but you should have a thorough knowledge of tools.
Good Luck

Changing supercharger oil


It takes a 3/16 allen wrench to open the port to check and add fluid which is on the top of the charger just left of the cover. You don't need to take the cover off to access.
