A huge problem with these motors is the plastic upper intake plenum. I just changed one on my fiance's 98 monte. The egr line runs through it and warps the plastic allowing the coolant to leak. A replacement part costs around $130, and comes with the necessary gaskets, takes a few hours to replace. follow the suggested torque specs

You need to have the intake manifold gaskets replaced This will also allow the temp sensor to tell the computer that it has warmed up. Then you can accellerate properly. Good luck Moe

How to replace a thermostat on a1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo 3.1 v6


you may be able to take off the water housing by taking the front bolt out and loosening the rear, but its TOUGH to get too. A repair shop can do it for you. I replace them if I have the intake manifold off for any reason. check if intake gaskets are leaking,(common), then you need them replaced and the thermostat is easy to replace at that time.

Most likely a bad seal on the water pump. They will shrink up when it gets real cold out and leak. Look for a white line on the bottom side of the hood as it usually is the only indicator when that happens. The water pump is prety easy to replace too. good luck

1998 monte carlo coolant


I just did a lower intake reseal on my 98 monte's 3100, it's not tough to do, the biggest part is paying attention to what pushrod came from what position and ensuring they go back to where they came from, not only for wear patterns, but for different lengths on the intake and exhaust push-rods.

I work for a GM dealer in northwest montana, and I can say it's not cheap labor-wise, generally around 6 hours of labor and around 300 in parts...it can add up quick, but when those intakes start leaking oil and coolant, things can go sour quickly...espeically if coolant starts leaking into the engine, not good for bearings.

Dex cool is not the problem with these gaskets leaking, it's common on 3100's, 3400's, 3300's, etc, any motor from that series that has that style of lower intake is prone to the issue, the rubber/plastic/composite will eventually warp, break down, crack, seperate from hot and cold cycles, I've seen it all too many times. Dex cool is the best coolant out there, there's a reason that prestone, peak, zerex can't compete, in fact a few of those blends are blends that are less efficient that Dex that GM decided not to patent. But the Dex patent is due to run out soon to the point everyone can start using dex. One issue with dex is the "gum-up" problem when the mixture is not ideal and the level is left low, but flushing and setting proper mixture (50/50) and level will alleviate this problem.
