Hi, if you have searched this problem recently on this car you will find that there is an issue with this particular engine (3.4 litre) that GM used on various vans and SUV's and the DEX coolant that is reccomended for this engine. Apparently the coolant corrodes the aluminum parts (intake, gaskets) causing them to deteriorate faster. I have had the unfortunate experience with this issue. First it was diagnoised as a cracked lower intake- car was leaking oil. Had that fixed but overheating issues persisted. Tried flushing the coolant but that only solved the problem for a few weeks and overheating started again, and coolant was boiling over in the reservor. Finally took it to GM (was having my own mechanic fix it prior to this) and they just called to say the gaskets are leaking into the combustion chamber and that is a $2000 (canadian) job. IF they find that one, or both the gaskets (there are 2) are also cracked (unlikely that both would be cracked) it is a $3000 job. I am considering trading in my car to the GM dealership. Only offerring $2000 for trade in as is. My advise is get your car to a GM service shop so the problem is properly diagnosed. I was told that I may have had this fixed under warranty if my vehicle dd not have 176,000 KM on it. Not sure if this is BS. Please connect with me here and let me know of your progress. I am stuck without a car and have a huge decision to make. I have been on tons of forums and there has not been one concrete solution that I found prior to taking it in to GM.
