This could be a # of problems but try these: Remove gas cap and carefully inspect it and the fuel filler neck for small cracks and/or distortion/dirt. Under the hood there is a small green cap which is the test port for the evap system, remove it and check the schrader valve to be sure its tight ( left hand threads!!!). Check all hoses attached to this for cracks/breaks.Other than this a diagnostic will have to be ran with a smoke machine to pin point leaks or valve/switch/solenoid/canister failure.

The lights are indicating you have an ABS brake control failure.
There are only a couple of things to look at. Check the ABS fuse in the under hood fuse box. If they are OK, take the car to your local Auto Zone or Advanced Auto store and get the codes pulled, they will do it at no charge. Write the codes down and reply.
We will go from there.
Good luck,

SOURCE: how to install a rear window regulator

How do you remove door panels and replace window regulator on an Intrigue? Answer : For a 2002 Intrigue – Front Passenger I didn’t disconnect battery. You use window switch later to align window tabs to regulator frame – with ignition off power locks work, nothing is exposed.
1. Remove visible screw under armrest, pop out finger inset oval panel, remove exposed 2nd screw. 2. Pop off door handle trim – lock button assembly slide thru its hole in door panel. 3. Pop off window switch trim/holder – slide thru its hole in door panel. 4. Remove 2 slot screws under bottom of door.
5. I used a smooth metal letter opener (or old fork) to pry panel from door at each point plastic fasteners insert into metal. Start prying a little, see three on bottom perimeter two inches from edge. Three on door open edge and three on door hinge edge. Slow and easy = whole panel will pop off. A metal compression spring fastener connects at top door hinge edge trim – pry out. Be sure door lock and window switch remain inside. Clean all surfaces of door panel and lay on back seat.
6. With panel off you see clear plastic moisture sheet stuck to door with black rubbery paste - peel it from door for reattachment. You now see mechanism and fastener points. Lay out replacement window regulator and motor on mat by door to help you recognize fastening points, etc.
7. Carefully pull glass all way up and hold in place with two pieces duck tape two feet long with ¼# removal tabovers. Put a foot on outside glass and loop over door frame a foot to inside glass – with room to later redo when you twice lower and raise a foot to access bolts removing/attaching it to regulator bar.
8. Remove 3 bolts holding motor to door. 9. Remove upper 2 bolts and lower 2 bolts holding regulator frame to door.
10. Lower window to expose thru panel cutout area two bolts holding glass tabs to regulator, retape securely. Remove bolts, raise window, retape securely by looping over door frame.
11. Window regulator and motor assembly comes out as unit. Unplug window switch tab to release from motor. BEFORE reassembly clean the inside of the door, put in a little Borax for bugs, etc.
12. Reassemble by starting three motor bolts, fitting regulator assembly in door cavity. Replug window switch, motor can be placed in thru oval slots, leave all bolts loose. Replace two upper and two lower regulator bracket bolts, leave loose.
13. Turn on ignition, use window switch to lower window glass regulator tab bracket until accessible thru panel cutout. Turn off ignition, manually lower glass until tabs align with regulator bracket bolt holes and tighten these bolts. Take tape off, turn on ignition, raise window to top.
14. Tighten three motor bolts and four regulator bracket bolts, make sure alignment is OK. Remove your tape residue - clean goo from both glass sides with Goof Off. THEN raise and lower several times to assure all fits and works like new.
15. Reinstall clear plastic sheet, aligning any fastener holes and rubbing down perimeter with a cloth .
16. Align door panel, assure door lock and window switch are pulled thru. Visually align each tab on door opening side and pop them in one at a time. Continue on bottom – make sure you see them align or they will break. Finish on door hinge side and with metal fastener at top. IF you break a fastener, take one from small bag you bought from Pep boys - otherwise take bag back for refund…
17. Reinstall 2 armrest screws and 2 bottom panel screws, then pop in door lock, trim piece and window switch.
Clean the window inside and out with glass cleaner/polish/raineze so it will slide easily and your done. You can’t do anything about the motors going out. You can avoid regulator tab breaks by making sure the window is raised BEFORE closing those big doors – down is the weak moment!! I work slow and clean as I go, the job took two hours. I highly recommend partsgeek.com – saved a bundle over dealer and they shipped everything in several days – as ordered!

SOURCE: Where are the spark plugs on my 2000 Oldsmobile

2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue V6-214 3.5L VIN H SFI

Spark Plug: Service and Repair
REMOVAL PROCEDURE
TOOLS REQUIRED
J 43094 Spark Plug Boot Puller
1. Turn OFF the ignition switch.
2. Remove the ignition coil assembly.
3. Use the J 43094 in order to remove the spark plug boots from the spark plugs.
NOTE: Allow the engine to cool before removing the spark plugs. Attempting to remove the spark plugs from a hot engine may cause the plug
threads to seize causing damage to cylinder head threads.
NOTE: Clean the spark plug recess area before removing the spark plug. Failure to do so could result in engine damage because of dirt or
foreign material entering the cylinder head, or by the contamination of the cylinder head threads. The contaminated threads may prevent the
proper seating of the new plug. Use a thread chaser to clean the threads of any contamination.
4. Remove the spark plugs from the engine.
INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
NOTE: Use only the spark plugs specified for use in the vehicle. Do not install spark plugs that are either hotter or colder than those specified for the
vehicle. Installing spark plugs of another type can severely damage the engine.
NOTE: Check the gap of all new and reconditioned spark plugs before installation. The pre-set gaps may have changed during handling. Use a round
feeler gage to ensure an accurate check. Installing the spark plugs with the wrong gap can cause poor engine performance and may even damage the
engine.
1. Measure the spark plug gap on the spark plugs to be installed. Compare the measurement to the gap specifications. Refer to Spark Plug Usage.
Correct as necessary.
NOTE: Be sure that the spark plug threads smoothly into the cylinder head and the spark plug is fully seated. Use a thread chaser, if necessary,
to clean threads in the cylinder head. Cross-threading or failing to fully seat the spark plug can cause overheating of the plug, exhaust blow-by, or
thread damage.
NOTE: Refer to Fastener Notice in Service Precautions.
2. Install the spark plugs to the engine.
Tighten
Tighten the spark plug to 20 N.m (15 lb ft).
3. Install the spark plug boots to the ignition coil assembly.

Is it OK to use prestone antifreeze in the cooling system?


Yes but usually a mix of 50% water and 50% antifreeze is required. Some Prestone antifreeze is premixed so it is better to use that. Fill to the radiator cap.

When I turn of my car anti-freeze comes out of the over flow tube. What could be causing this problem?


It could be a clogged radiator or your head gasket might be starting to go. Have the radiator and coolant system cleaned and flushed first and go from there.

My 2000 old 3.5 l intrigue overheats at 1500 rpms and below. I have changed throttle body gasket, thermostat and water pump and it still is overheating. Where do I go next.


The orange antifreeze that is used is know to gel up and after a few years when the mixture is no longer 50/50, the antifreeze will crystallize and plug up water journals and jackets. The orange antifreeze has a life of 5 years or 150,000 miles and any longer will have the cooling system plugged up with crystals. Best thing to do is to flush out the cooling system with Preston coolant flush, use the dry powder to flush the system out and follow the instructions, then replace the coolant with 50/50 (water/antifreeze) mix. If your not sure how to mix, you can buy them premixed. This should help keep your cooling system 100%, keep me posted. Be glad to help get your car running 100% and you could also replace the temperature sensor, it's located at the manifold just in front of the thermostat housing. The tip of the sensor may have crystal formation, giving it a false reading.

Where to put steering fluid


In the power steering reservior. It should have a cap and be either opaque (the cap will have a dipstick inside) or translucent (you'll be able to see the level through the reservior). It'll be on the serpentine system. You can also find it by finding a metal hose that runs into the bottom of the reservior and connects to the steering system. Hope this all helps.

3.5 olds intrigue overheating. Why?


Replace the radiator, and flush the system out. Don't use Dexcool in the system as this is the source of many cooling problems on GM's.
