P0441 refers to a purge flow fault detected by the PCM. Take it back to whoever put the intake gaskets on. My best educated guess would be they left something unhook or pinched off a tube. The purge flow and purge valve are right in the area where they where working to change them gaskets. Make them double check there work to make sure they didn't leave something unhooked or pinch something off.

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!

OIL LIGHT KEEPS COMING ON?


See my answer to your related/same question which I include again for your reference:
You must immediately check your engine oil level and take appropriate action: unless you have a defective oil pressure sensor, oil pressure light usually indicates that your engine oil is not flowing properly. Some possible issues: low oil level (leaking engine?), blocked oil filter (when did you last get your car service) or defective or blocked oil pump due to excessive dirty engine oil.
Also check under your car to see if you have any oil leaks: this usually indicate that you have defective engine gaskets or oil seals causing your oil (pressure) warning light to come on.
Hope it is of assistance. But I would consult a motor mechanic asap as you engine could soon fail due to the lack adequate oil lubrication.

97 blazer lost coolant, stopped immediately due to loss of power. Now won't turn over?


Can you see where the coolant is coming from or were it's going? This vehicles are notorious for the lower intake gasket leaking and at times it could mix with the oil. Check your oil level if higher than normal or a milky appearance you may need to chance the gasket and change the oil.

Coolant leak 05 denali


I will assume as usual that it has the 5.7L engine. The common cause for a coolant leak in these truck are the intake manifold. It either leaks externally or internally or both this is a common problem with this engine. You have to replace the intake gaskets. This a fairly big job. First check your engine oil if the level has risen and if the oil smells like anti freeze or looks like a milkshake kinda foamy then the chances are good that your intake is leaking.If all else fails you will have to do a coolant pressure test and you will seee the leak probably.It could also be your cylinder head gaskets but the most likely cause is the intake gasket. $100.00 for the gasket kit and about 5-6 labour. Change your oil & filter before you start it after you replace the gaskets. Then if your leak goes away change your oil & filter again about a week later to ensure you get all the coolant out of the engine oil this is very harmfull to the bearings in the engine.

Lossing antifreeze but no puddles we think its the antifreeze intake gasget?


if no puddles or no keaks you can see, then its probably your head gaskets, or the intake gaskets leaking. look all around intake to see if you see any leaks. if you do its your intake gaskets. how does the coolant look! on my car when the intake gasket was leaking, it made the coolant look milky and a chocolate type mixture. so check it out first, the intake gasket. Coolant may flow through the gasket to the inside of the engine and mix with the oil. Pull the oil dipstick out and look at it. Oil mixed with coolant will have a thick consistency. Examine the oil filter cap for any rusty-looking residue. good-luck.

You can purchase an intake manifold gasket set from a local parts store. It should have the upper and lower intake gaskets contained in it. I see you plan on doing the valve cover gaskets as well. It might be a good idea to replace the plugs and wires at the same time to save some trouble down the road. I would recommend doing the oil change and change the thermostat at the same time as well.

1999 Pontiac Grand Am with "lower intake leak"...What does this mean specifically? Would this mean the intake for the radiator, gasket, or valve?


Usually intake has to do with the induction system, as in intake manifold , The intake manifold can have several types of leaks, the intake can have a vacuum leak, oil leak, coolant leak or a combination of any of the before mentioned....hope this helps,

Oil in over coolant tank


If there is oil inside the coolant liquid that is the head gasket.

Check first if oil can leak into the coolant tank from the cap.

Usually when you get oil into the coolant liquid you have an head gasket problem, do a compression test, or buy the home tester below.

I have a 2000 dodge grand caravan with the 3.3L engine and it seems to have what sounds like or could be a blown head gasket. It starts, but will not idle. runs rough, so badly that it wont stay running.


Pull the oil dipstick and see if you have a lot of bubbles in the oil. If your head gasket is blown you will have coolant mixing with oil causing the bubbles. If you don't see the bubbles, you may still have a bad head gasket but should consider that it may a be a bad intake manifold gasket. Look on the ends of the engine block - where the transmission attaches on the driver's side and the drive belt is on the passenger side. Look for signs of coolant leaking onto the outside of the block castings at the base of the lower intake manifold chamber (it looks sort of like the flattened bottom of a V) . If it's there you may just have the manifold gasket leak. My '03 T&C with the 3.3l had this problem. It ran rough, and only with no pedal being applied. Driving was tough to get it to the shop since it died at each stop light and required the gas pedal to be feathered to keep it running.

If you have more than amateur skills you can replace it yourself.
