98 Valkyrie intake where it bolts to the motor leaks small amount of oil. Where is the oil coming from?


IT is possible that the oil is coming from a failed gasket between the intake and the motor. First re-tension the bolts IF it still leaks remove and replace the gasket. It may be necessary to put sealer around bolts as they may go through to an area where there is oil splash.

What is wrong with my 2004 chevolet malibu, its leaking oil tremendously


If this has the v6, it's probably the intake manifold gaskets. This is a super common problem with these. You end getting oil in the cooling system and anti-freeze in the oil, they also leak externally when this happens. I would get it looked at/repaired asap or severe engine damage will result. I've had to replace quite a few over the years.

Water leaking underneath the motor


A little leakage is normal. Also the A/C will drip water, but that comes down from the firewall area.

From the motor, it may indicate a leaky water pump. This will drip from the front of the engine which is the right side as the driver looks. The pump is located under the timing belt cover.

Also check all your large hoses to see if a leak has developed at any joint.

The V6 engine often develops a water leak under the intake manifold which is hard to see. The water appears on top of the transmission. Camrys will often also get a split in the plastic radiator top tank, so look there.

If you are not losing large amounts of water, you have a while to track it down at leisure !

I am leaking coolant from somewhere. when I run my car, the engine smells like hot coolant. I have checked the oil, and the coolant isn't mixing with the oil. I have read about intake manifold...


First, I am assuming that your vehicle is equipped with the 3.1L V-6 and NOT the 3.8L V-6? (Engine size is really nice to know in situations like this!)

It could be any where in the cooling system. The intake gaskets also like to leak externally. A bad intake gasket does not always mix antifreeze with the oil. Take a flashlight and look for coolant on top and/or down each side of the transmission bell housing. This is VERY common on these engines. It may be leaking just enough to where the exhaust crossover pipe is burning it up (and stinking) before it has a chance to run on the ground. Also look for stains on the intake manifold-to block mating surfaces and on the side of the bell housing that will indicate a leak. if your vehicle is still using Dex-Cool, the stains will be pink. If your coolant has been changed to green antifreeze, the stains will usually be real white or dark green depending on the brand and the severity of the leak.

If there are no leaks or stains in this area, then look around the water pump area for the same things. The radiator or coolant hoses (including heater hoses) could also be leaking. If it is stinking when the engine is hot, then you could get it hot then shut if off and look for steam.

TIP: A bright LED flashlight works really good for locating steam.

Antifreeze leaked out from somewhere in the back of motor .the two front holes are not leaking no check engine.temp gauge rises to the top cant see the leak i just here pressure being released and some...


if it is coming from behind the r front tire and is a 4cyl the water pump has an o-ring that fits between pump and block and is behind timing cover where you can not see it. usually if it is leaking you can look under car at the engine on r-side at p/s pump area and can see where coolant has run down oil pump to oil pan from behind t-cover. hope this helped give me more info if not and good luck................

Leaking coolant somewhere below after car is warm and shut off can not find,recently replaced water pump, and it is not the radiator


Does this vehicle have a 3.1 or 3.4L motor. If so they commonly have intake manifold gaskets failures. This leads to coolant leaking, usually at the corners of the intake manifold and in some instances leaking into the oil. Look for signs of coolant leaking at the corners of the intake manifold and check the engine oil for coolant.

I just changed the thermostat on 3.4 L 1999 Pontiac Gr Am GT THINKING IT WOULD FIX THE OVER HEATING. But there is white steam coming out the exhaust! The oil is not milky so it's not a head gasket. There's...


Are you adding coolant?
Yes ......means it's going somewhere.
Fill the coolant tank to the top...right to the top....leave the cap off and run the engine.
If you see bubbles you need a head gasket.
The intake gasket is another source of coolant leaks and at this area the coolant can be sucked into the engine and produce a white smoke.
Does the car run rough at the first start in the morning....could be antifreeze burning off in the cylinder or area that was leaking overnight meaning cyl gasket or intake gasket.
Look at the rear head to block area below the exhaust manifold.
Is there any trace of coolant or stains of coolant......yes means head gasket time.
Pressurizing each cyl at a time with air with the valves closed in that cyl will quickly show the location of the bad head gasket with bubbles coming out of the fill tank on the bad cyl (s).
Head gasket leaks don't always mean milky oil.

1999 windstart upper intake gasket problems maybe?


sounds like an intake leak or a vacuum leak , would start it and spray like carb cleaner or starting fluid on the top of the motor while it is cool not hot and see if you get a rise or fall in rpm,s if it does get a response chase down the vacuum leak, if not it is probally the intake gasket
