I don't know if this was already posted, but there was a class action claim settlement on this. Unfortunately, the deadline for filing a claim was 10/27/2008. I got re-imbursed $400 for this (cost me a lot more tho). Info on this at http://www.dexcoolsettlement.com/claim.php3

How to fix intake gasket on 2003 malibu


What is the problem with the intake, is it leaking air, coolant oil or a combination of the 3? The answer really depends on your particular concern with the vehicle. Is it the upper or lower intake? What size engine do you have?

Location of freeze plug on 2001 malibu


I had a 2000 malibu 3.1 and the manifold gasket was leaking. Model years affected, 97-04. Check the recovery coolant tank and if it looks like a milk shake instead of coolant, then you have a bad intake manifold gasket. I replaced mine a few years ago and all was fine. Engines affected are the 2.4-3.1-and 3.5, look very carefully around the intake manifold and you will see it if its leaking! operating the engine with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks. Because oil will mix with coolant if gasket is bad. Hope this helps you out! Good-Day!

I have a major oil leak going on somewhere above my starter on my 2003 chevy malibu. Does anyone know if its a simple fix or an expensive one??? I just bought this car and barely got the overheating...


Intake gasket is shot or of it has been replaced it was poor work
These engines are famous for intake gasket issues more so if it has GM dexcool antifreeze. 700-1000 in shop. Find a good back yarder. Parts arround 100. Couple hun for labour

I have oil in the antifreeze. Checked spark plugs to see if head gasket leak. Doesn't seem to be that. Maybe Intake Manifold gasket? How to check that?


There is no oil in the intake manifold. Assuming you have overhead cams, oil can leak into a coolant jacket past the head gasket or a crack in the head without getting into the combustion chamber. This is likely what has happened. If you need more help, please reply.
