Would a leak in the intake manifold gasket cause low compression?

no it will not. Bad rings will do it, Valves not seating in the head, Bad head gasket. Burnt piston will do it . These are things to look for.

The intake gasket have anything to do with the car overhearing?

ya, especially if you are leaking antifreeze internally or externally. if intake manifold gasket leaks usually have vacuum problem result in "rough engine idle" look for external antifreeze leak at manifold gasket first. then check oil for "milky color" - if antifreeze runs low due to leak = Yes - engine overheat. Dont drive it - you can do a lot more damage if you do.


Where could engine coolant be leaking from on rear topside of engine on a 1998 350vortec it pours coolant out but can't see where from?

It is common for the intake manifold gasket to leak antifreeze from the corners of the intake. Need to replace intake gasket. Be sure to look closely at the intake were the gasket seals against it for pitts in the intake.

How do you fix a water leak under the intake manifold on a Chevy Tracker V6 2001?

The intake manifold gasket is a common problem with the 90 degree GM engines. Replacing it requires you to bring the #1 cylinder to top dead center, then you have to very carefully scrape away the gasket material, being sure not to get any into the intake manifold itself. And you're going to have to look up the torque specs for reassembly. But, the short answer is that you're going to have to replace the gasket. Numerous resources are available online which go into detail on how to do this, or you can get a Chilton or Haynes service manual for that vehicle.


1994 dodge caravan that has a miss to it but does not have problems starting Owner said it was the manifold donut gasket that needs replaced Is this possible?

A exhaust manifold that is warped, cracked, or missing a gasket will make a sound like a engine miss. I usually look for soot near the suspected area to tell for sure.

What do you need to look into for a 1993 Chevy lumina that will start for a couple of seconds then die?

1997 Pontiac sunfire clicking sound when it warms up doesnt do it when it is first started only does it when the car warms up could it be an intake maiflod gasket?

I would think it could be an exhaust manifold leak. Look at the exhaust manifold for a bolt that is missing; then can vibrate loose( Some manifolds use gaskets-some don't). Also look where the exhaust manifold attaches to the exhaust pipe for leaks. Leaks will often leave a black or gray soot mark if they are leaking; and they usually leak once the motor warms up and parts expand. I hope this helps you. Mark


Can coolant leak from the valve cover?

No, if there is coolant in your valve cover it'll be mixed with oil. You blew your head gasket, possibly warped or cracked your head. It may look like coolant is leaking from your valve cover but it's your intake gasket leaking.


You have a large oil leak in the right front of your 1998 Saturn vehicle how do you change the head gasket on this vehicle?

An oil leak there is probably a valve cover gasket leaking. it would not require head gasket replacment. Try tightning the bolts on the valve cover. If that does not work then replace the valve cover gasket. Yes it could be the head gasket as there are oil passages in the head and i have heard that head gasket on saturns are prone to failure,look around the valve cover for sings of a leak hopfully that's all it is because replacing the head gasket is costly on th 1.9 sohc


Would a bad exhaust manifold also cause a ticking like a lifter if needed replacement?

if it is cracked or the gasket is bad sometimes they sound like ticking lifters. look for carbon deposits at joints and on the manifolds themselves.


How do i tell if i need a manifold valve cover gasket on a 2002 Pontiac grand am?

i dont know much on cars but my mechanic told me that the oil will leak into the water which causes the water to look milky. It will also cause the car run hot. if it was a cracked head then the water will be in the oil.


Head gasket leak 1996 Chevy Silverado?

Leaking what???It is not common for a head gasket to leak. I would check all 4 corners of the intake real CLOSE for antifreeze and oil. I mean close.If oil sending unit,are the back of the intake is leaking. oil will run down around the heads and make the heads look like there leaking. Make sure you look at the back of the intake real good.


How do you tell your head gasket is crack?

There are several symptoms to look for with a blown head gasket 1. there is water in the oil. oil will look like chocolate milk 2. there is oil in the water 3. there are bubles in your radiator. looks like a fish tank which means your loosing compression into your radiator 4. loosing a lot of coolant out of your radiator but you can't find a leak, which means your gasket is blown on the exhaust side and your blowing coolant out your exhaust


Why does your car suddenly use more water?

If you mean it suddenly started loosing coolant, then look for a leak. If you see no leak then suspect a blown head gasket. Stop driving the car until you get this repaired. If you continue to drive a car with a blown head gasket you will destroy the engine.


Why after replacing radiatorwater pumpthermostat on 1995 GMC sierra still overheating?

You may have a head gasket leak. Remove your radiator cap and warm truck to normal operating temp. Look into radiator if you see air bubbles coming out you most likely have a head gasket leak. You will most likely need to replace the head gasket. Good luck, JQ


If there is no water in the oil but the engine is hot and the radiator is empty and white steam is coming out of the tailpipe is it possible that the head gasket broke only on 1 side and is not mixing with oil?

It could be a head gasket or a cracked head. Look at the exhaust manifold for each cylinder on the side that has the white smoke, the cylinder that has the leak will cause that port on the manifold to get super hot. One way to quickly identify which port is to spray some cheap black (or color of choice) paint on the exhaust manifold and fill the radiator and start the engine. The paint on the bad cylinder will burn off first.


What is causing Oil to look like chocolate milk ac won't cool and needs coolant added every week but never sHow is a external leak?

Water is getting into the oil from an internal leak. Try using some radiator stop leak, but if it gets worse it may be a blown head gasket or something serious.


What would a bad head gasket look like I can't see a break in the gasket but maybe I'm not looking for the right thing?

The gasket may not be bad, it may be that the head is warped and that is why the gasket leaked. You can sometime see the spot that leaked, usually at the ring around the cylinder hole. Depends on how long the car was driven with the leak. The longer it has been the more likely you can see something.


What is the cost to replace intake manifold gasket Pontiac 2003?

I was having a problem with my intake manifold gasket on my 2003 Pontiac grand am and i took it to a shop it was 600 dollars parts and labor you can get it much cheaper i just chose a mechanic i could trust. now it may not be intake manifold gasket the best way to tell is to lift your oil cap look at the backside of it and if there is a blueish tint liquid on the cap then your getting condensation which means bad intake gasket. But it can also be your thermostat housing messing up which would be much cheaper.


Engine oil blowing past filter gasket?

Then someone did not install the filter correctly or the gasket was defective. The gasket must have a thin coat of oil applied before installing or it can leak. The filter should be tightened no more or less than 3/4 turn after it makes contact with the mounting surface, or it may leak. Too tight or too loose and it may leak. The mounting surface may have grit on it or may be damaged. Look see.


Can there be an antifreeze leak from the intake manifold but not any antifreeze mixed in with the engine oil?

there can be a leak from the intake manifold without any antifreeze mixing with your oil, i personally experienced this problem on a 1986 sentra after a changed the head gasket, i apparently had scaped a little to hard on the intake when cleaning it for new gaskets. if its a small leak it would probably just be evaporating in the combustion chamber, but it can and probably will become a problem that needs attention quickly. have a trusted mechanic take a look at it as soon as possible, maybe have them do a compression check to see if there are any possible leaks. well good luck


Where would you look for a intake vacuum leak on 97 jeep wrangler?

where the intake manifold attaches to the head, and along any of the rubber hoses that are attached to it.
