I have not had this problem, but if something like vacuum hoses were switched, it could do this. The sensors would just be opening at the wrong time and your EGR would maybe open at the wrong time. There is also a metal tube which goes from the intake to an offshoot of the exhaust system. By sensors I mean the vacuum electric pods that the vacuum lines plug into.

You did not say why you replaced the intake. Maybe the problem was there all along and the old manifold was good.

'94 Gmc Sonoma 4.3L Starts loosing Power and making weird Rattle Noise when reaching operating temperature. Also water tank looks like there is a bit oil in it. Could it be the cylinder head gasket?


Oil in the coolant is usually an intake manifold gasket problem on these engines. If a head gasket failure the engine will normally overheat and give erratic temp guage readings. Make sure the oil level is full. Is the rattle noise coming from the engine? Some times the exhaust (converter) will fail and the catylist will seperate causing a rattle noise from the exhaust and plug it up giving a no power situation

I have an 03 Lincoln town car and I have to replace the intake manifold because it's leaking around the thermostat housing. . I haven't replaced it yet but I have noticed a loud rattling tapping noise...


I would replace the intake asap if you already have a replacement. Is there coolent in the oil or a milky looking stuff in the oil or on the oil filler cap. Your piston rod bearings do not like coolant and can go bad very fast if there is coolent in the oil. That could be the sound you are hearing.

Check your PCV valve (Positive Crankcase Ventilator). Normally located on a valve cover with a hose to the intake manifold. Remove it and shake it and if it does not have a rattling noise and is clogged, the valve is defective and not allowing pressure that builds up in the engine to be released through the intake manifold thereby forcing engine oil through any loose "exit" such as the dip stick tube or loose valve cover bolts, etc. This valve allows the engine to "breath" so to speak. No rattle...replace...not expensive as compared to what damage it can cause. Good luck...Ken

This is tricky without a great deal of additional information. If it runs rich there is a possibility that the oil is becoming diluted and thus losing viscosity. Check the oil dipstick and see if the level is high and smells like gasoline. This will indicate that there is fuel mixing the oil. That's the first thing that comes to mind.

1998 Olds Intregue, 3.8L about 80K miles, started making loud engine noise. Tore down and found crack in lower intake manifold. What would cause this? Is it worth replacing? Should I be checking for...


If the intake manifold is cracked, maybe try to put some puddy epoxy in it to repair. I've found puddy epoxy useful in repairing leaks in other parts of the engine, including a rusty oil pan that was leaking oil. I think that puddy epoxy would be ideal for this crack. Probably, you are hearing the valves clacking if there is a crack there.

How much did you tear the engine down?

Oil consumption, rattle, engine noise


Check under the hood and inspect the valve cover gasket. If it's bad it would explain why you don't see any leaks on the ground because it's probably burning off on the manifold. This ticking you're hearing is a lack of lubrication to the rocker arms. Apart from the valve cover gasket, you should get under the car and inspect the oil pan and oil filter for seepage. Best of luck on your problem.
