Question about 1998 Buick LeSabre
1998 Buick lesabre loses acceleration power when stopping then going. Acceleration then kicks in. Engine Light says bank 1 too lean. Recently, started up the car, idled really rough (exhaust was rumbling) and then it just shut off. This has happened before, and coolant was leaking into the intake. Had to get intake replaced, new oil, new spark plugs. When I got it towed to garage after it stopped running, Garage said it was starting right up when they started it. They probably think I am crazy because I keep bringing it there and it seems to start up ok every time!
Take your Buick to a shop where they can actually identify the head gasket leak.

Bellow is an "example" of the tightening sequence for an intake manifold. The sequence is usually the same for most vehicles, but you should refer to a Haynes/Chilton manual for your specific make and model of vehicle to verify tightening sequence and torque specs.
