Depending on what its made of, cast or aluminum or whatever, if its in a fixable place, meaning you'll need to drill a hole on either side of the crack to stop it from growing, then weld it up if its not cast, or if its cast braze it. You'll have to take it off the car.

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 in anti-freeze

That is not a good sign. These are a few ways this can happen. Bad head gasket, bad intake manifold gasket, cracked or warped head, or a cracked engine block. If the intake manifold gasket hasn't been replaced yet, have it checked for leaks. The 3100 and 3400 V6 engines are prone for intake gasket failure.

Saturn Sl rpm at 2000

Have a mechanic look at it for leaks between the intake manifold and the head. Have them run an OBD 2 scanner and check for cylanders misfiring. Probably a bad intake manifold gasket or other broken or cracked hoses/fittings connected to the intake.

X5 diesal blue smoke

Hi , if you have had a turbo failure on this vehicle , just replacing the turbo will not cure the cause of blue smoke . depending how bad the seals had gone in the turbo you would need to replace , the complete exhaust system , the crankcase breater , air intake manifold , air charger but only if these items have been contaminated with oil , they would not be able to be cleaned out , hope this helps , regards mark
