As long as the heads are not damaged from overheating repairing would be an option rather than replacing the engine. Get advise from a mechanic you trust. The intake manifold gaskets are the most common problem with this vehicle if you have the V6 engine.

How to replace a head gasket on a Buick Park Avenue 1992 with a 3800 engine


Are you sure its a head gasket? The coolant cross over gaskets on the intake manifold are famous for blowing out and simulating a head gasket failure. 9 out of 10 times this is the problem. Good part is you have to pull the intake to do a head gasket, so id pull off the intake first, its not that hard on this motor. If they are blown you wont have any problem telling it.

It turns over but it will not stay running unless foot is on gas padal. White smoke is coming from tail pipe


Hi,
White smoke usually indicates a blown manifold gasket or head gasket. First, check for coolant in oil. When you pull the dipstick, is the level too high or have a foamy appearance? If so, blown head gasket. If not, spray starting fluid around intake manifold outer mating surface with engine running. ( not near throttle body or air intake) If motor revs up during procedure, locate that area you are spraying and duplicate the motor rev up. If consistent, blown intake manifold gasket. Its always good to have codes checked first if you have a check engine light illuminated....Mike

HOW TO FIX A BLOWN HEAD GASKIT?


Buy a gasket kit for the upper end. Remove the valve cover intake and exhaust manifolds. Remove the head bolts. Remove head and clean up block from old gasket material. Take the head to a machinist and make sure that it is not warped. If it is warped either replace the head with a new one or have it machined true. Install new gasket and get torque specs with new head bolts and follow torque sequence using the correct torque specs. Clean exhaust, intake and valve cover of old gaskets. install new gaskets and torque according to specifications.

What's the difference between a blown head gasket and a blown intake gasket?


The head gasket goes between the block and the head, and seals the combustion process, and cooling water, and (if oil is pumped obove the heads to valve components) oil pressure.

Intake gaskets seal between the intake manifold and the head, and seal against intake vacuum, and in many cases, coolant.

A badly blown head gasket will so destroy compression in the cylinder that you can hear uneven cranking as that cylinder comes up on compression, kind of a “whir, whir, WHIR, whir, whir, WHIR, whir” with the capitalized whir being the engine spinning much faster due to no compression holding the starter back.

You will never be able to hear a problem with an intake manifold gasket until the engine actually starts to fire and/or run.

Blowing oil from a gasket right side of engine they say to replace the gasket you have to buy a whole new head


If it is a head gasket, then yes, you probably need to replace the head, since blown head gaskets are an indication of severe overheating and consequent damage to head. If it is the rubber gasket underneath the valve cover----then no, you just need the gasket, about $17 at autozone.

What would cause coolant to get in your oil?


This is not a good thing. You have a gasket leaking somewhere (head gasket, intake gasket) or a cracked head or block possibly. Don't run it like this you will wreck the whole engine instead of just a gasket replacement. Still not easy or cheap but better than a new engine.
