SOURCE: 1996 Pontiac Grand Am Coolant in Oil

Hi Linda.

You have a major problem, first, don't run the engine at all! when there is coolant in the oil, running the engine can ruin it completely. the coolant will cause bearings in the bottom of the motor to seize, if not more cause more damage.

these engines are known for blowing head gaskets and intake gaskets. in this case, if you haven't ran the motor since finding the problem, the head gaskets can be replaced and the engine should be fine. I'd recommend doing the heads even if it's only the intake leaking. that would be cheaper than having to go back in later, and there isn't much further to the head gaskets after the intake is off.
also, have a new thermostat put in while this is all being done, it's cheap insurance!

If you know someone that has done head gaskets before, they should be able to tackle this without too much problem, otherwise if you'd rather a shop do the job, just make sure to tow or haul the car to the shop.

SOURCE: 99 grand prix liquid capacities? coolant and oil

Get the premixed antifreeze inwhich no measuring is involved, just pour it in. if using the old concetrated stuff add 1.6 gallons of coolant then the rest bottled water. Tap water has minerals in it which rot the radiator's core out quicker. The engine oil is 4.5 quarts with filter

2001 pontiac grand am se v6 3.4L overheats-water pump is good, thermostat is good, replaced seals, replaced coolant reservoir tank, backflushed radiator, checked air intake manifold, checked coolant line....


is the engine fan coming on? , when the heads were removed ,were they pressure tested. u may need to use a carbon block test from the coolant tank. the liquid will turn a different color if exhaust gas is present in the coolant,which would be a internal problem

I have a 96 grand am and it started leaking coolant from somewhere around the manifold, i can't tell exactly where it's coming from. Does anyone know it that could be the termostat?


If its a v6 engine and the leak is by the intake manifold, then you need to replace the intake manifold gasket. This is a very, very common problem on all of GM's v6 engines. It will cost you about $350-$400 for this repair.

Normal coolant temp for 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee city/highway V6


Your Jeep should have a 192 or 195 degree thermostat. Do u have to add coolant once in a while? If there is no coolant loss, no overheating problem, u shouldn't have to worry about it, it could be the temp. sending unit is not accurate. If it concerns u it would probably be worth it to remove the thermostat, check the temp rating on it(it should be stamped on it). Replace w/ a new one, and see what it indicates for temp then. Good luck, let me know what u find Curt
