A lot of GM V-6's had problems with poor intake manifold gaskets. Any moisture around the oil cap? Or anti freeze in the oil?

Replaced manifold gaskets and still have problem of coolant mixing with oil. Wondering if the new Fel-Pro gaskets not up-to-par, or maybe head gaskets need replacing?


if coolant in oil usually head gasket over the intake gasket---when changed intake did you find failure also with coolant in oil if coolant gets thru bearings bearings will burn them up

My 2008 Chevy uplander engine light on and the code shows for cam shaft sensor and intake manifold what I do


The intake code means its leaking from the intake,bad gaskets, or a vacuum leak. check for bad gaskets on intake manifold. You can tell by putting a bit of oil around the maifold. if it is leaking the engine will flair up. To check this, External leak-- Coolant seeps through the broken intake manifold gasket to the outside of the engine. If its bad enough you will see coolant dripping from gasket. Coolant seeps through the damaged gasket to the inside of the engine, mixing with motor oil. If you suspect an internal leak, check your oil dipstick. Or if you have a substance under oil filler cap that looks like a milkshake, Oil is mixing with coolant. this means intake gaskets are bad, Now for the camshaft sensor, If you have a manifold leak. this could be giving you a false camshaft reading! Because, If sensor is bad vehicle will not start unless theres a wire problem. Symtoms of a bad sensor are--- engine sputtering, poor acceleration, stalling/inability to start. HopeI helped you out! Good-Day!

What are the symptoms of a bad intake gasket on a 1999 buick century?


Coolant leaks,When the intake manifold gasket cracks or blows out, coolant will leak out of the intake manifold. You may see puddles underneath your car or notice smoke or steam coming off of the engine and exhaust from the coolant dripping onto it and then burning.Overheating, If the intake manifold gasket fails and allows coolant to leak out into the engine, your car will begin to overheat. If your car frequently runs low on coolant or begins to overheat, check the intake manifold gasket.Running poorly, When the intake manifold gasket falters, it affects the way the motor handles its emission gases. The change in pressure can affect the vacuum in the intake as well as how smoothly your car runs. Mainly, it will idle roughly and may hesitate, cough or sputter.

Car overheats frequently i add plenty of 50/50 dex cool and water daily it still tends to over heat we have a new thermostat and water pump but there is a hose missing off of the air compressor would this...


If you have a 3800 motor check your intake manifold gasket these are the symptoms that my car exhibited untill the motor locked up because it had filled the cylinders with water.
The dex cool deteriorates the gasket and the plastic intake manifold.
Replace the intake manifold and gasket, flush the dex cool out of the motor and replace with the regular green coolant.
