Car running hot

Probably a cracked cylinder head or block, or both. Or the head was warped and the head gasket has blown again.
When the engine gets very hot the gasket expands, and after a few times it will not return to its original shape.

Can a bad intake plenum leak antifreeze into the engine on a 2002 century 3.1?The computer code was misfire #1 cylinder. Complete tune-up done, same problem, new#1 injector, same problem. Now the coolant...

I see a lot of lower intake gasket leaks on these but usually you get an external leak or you'll find coolant mixed with the oil, not a misfire. Upper plenum is dry on the 3.1 and just bolts onto the top of the lower intake. We usually apply pressure to the cooling system overnight with the spark plug removed from the misfiring cylinder. If there is coolant in the cylinder come morning then you only have to figure out where it is coming from. If the plenum is removed during the test you might be able to see where the coolant is or isn't coming from with a borescope by looking down the intake runner.

Oil sludge in radiator

The 3100 and the 3400 are noted for the intake gasket going out. You can usually see it leaking at the left front and right rear of the intake as you sit in the car. Look along the slanted area of the intake manifold where it joins with the heads. If you are tight on money, the repair is generally around 5-700 dollars, buy Bars Leak Head repair. It will take two days to fix, however if you follow the directions to the letter, you will not have the problem again. I have repaired head gaskets that were literally leaking water that you could see and two years later it is still running. Remember to follow every step on the bottle to the letter or you have wasted your time. The only one you do not have to worry about is the step where it tells you to remove the plug at the cylinder that is leaking since you are not leaking at a cylinder.

Hope this helps
