Gas fumes getting into car, problem being corrected, further inspections shows drive belt and tensioner need replacing, center link on idle arm to replace,coolant leaking so lower intake gasket needs...


Replacing the belt and tensioner is fairly easy and shouldn't cost to much. At least replace the belt if the tensioner is decent. Nothing is worse than having a belt break on the road and being stuck. As for AC, that's really up to you on how hot you like it. :)

The center link on the idler arm would be a good idea in time. You could wait for a while, but don't compromise your steering and handling to much.

As for the lower intake gasket you could run into big problems down the road. GM put a plastic type gasket into these 4.3L motors and they fail all the time. Even at low miles like you have. The problem is you might just be leaking coolant outside the engine block for now, but the gasket could fail and get coolant inside the motor and cause much more problems when mixing with oil and possible engine failure.

Good luck! Let me know if you have other questions. I just replaced a lower intake gasket on a 2001 GMC Jimmy a few months ago.

I have been slowly losing coolant for several years. Only recently I can smell coolant when fan runs. Does a heater core have typical trouble spots? What are the basic procedures for RR an intake...


first check the radiator tanks, common problem with the plastic tanks getting a crack in them and then gets larger overtime. the intake manifold is also a common problem. look for coolant leaks in front of the engine and along the valve covers.replacing the intake gaskets is a rather big job(4 to 6 hours for an experienced mechanic)and the heater core is even a bigger task. the dash has to be removed to access the heater core. if you want step by step instuctions, you may want to puchase a HAYNES or CHILTON manual.

I am leaking antifreeze under my blazer onto the ground but not inside the vehicle. My blazer does not overheat, my heat will work sometimes while driving but as soon as I stop or slow down it blows cold....


you need to figure out where the coolant is leaking from. Some common areas are

the water pump in which case you would be able to remove the splash shield from under the front of the vehicle and using a flash light be able to see coolant coming out of the weep hole of the water pump.

The intake gaskets. Look in the corner of the intake valley where the head and lower intake meet right under the a/c compressor. If you see coolant its leaking and needs to be replaced.

The radiator, you'll be looking for wet spots on the side tanks of the radiator. Loose upper and lower radiator hoses could also cause this.

If you can't find anything visually you'll need to bring it in and have it pressure tested.

How much will it cost for a mechanic to change oil pan gasket on my 1998 chevy blazer 4wd big v6 engine?


Gasket = $35 (permatex rubber)
Labor - my manual says 3 hours.
You'll have to be responsible for figuring out the labor price per hour depending on where you are located.
In MI, a garage is about $50/hr, and dealership = $85/hr
CA might be $95/$150/hr.

Parts are minimal on the job - its all labor.
Figure in about $20 for shop supplies... gasket remover, sealant, rags, etc.

Coolent in oil


If you have coolant in your oil there is 99% chance it is your intake gaskets. It is about a 6 hour job. You will need mechanical ability. This job involves removing every thing on top of the motor, including the distributor and AC pump. You will also need to remove the whole bracket assembly off the drivers side of the motor that the AC pump bolts to in order to remove the intake. Do not out off getting it fixed because the coolant will destroy the bearings in the motor. Also use the new felpro metal gaskets.
