I have a 98 Malibu and I know from experience that antifreeze can leak from the intake gasket. It cost me $400 to fix it. At first we thought it was tranny fluid because it was pink, not that! I have Dexcool in my car and that is what was leaking from the intake. Common problem for the 3800 II; GMs` later 3800s have ALUMINUM intakes; I guess they found the problem, yet they didn`t choose to fix the other cars.....bastards...

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. There is a heater hose that goes into the intake on right rear corner in the back, but uo on top of intake. check closely.

Where is internal antifreeze leak getting into exhaust skystem in a 3800 engine?

A gm 3.8 l v6 or 3800 cc engine cannot have antifreeze in exhaust without first getting into the engine. If its getting into the exhaust it may be entering the cumbustion chambers through a damaged cylinder head or head gasket. Also this engine depending on the model year may have issues with the intake manifold gasket, that can cause antifreeze to leak into the engine oil.

Why antifreeze is in the oil?

You did not say what size engine are what it is in, so I'll try my best to give you the correct answer. If you have a v8 or v6 engine, Then it is very common for the intake manifold gasket to leak engine coolant into the lifter gallery when the intake gasket blows. It is not common what so ever for a head gasket to allow antifreeze to get into the oil when they blow. Need to check intake gasket first. If we did not help you then ask your question again.

What is the cause of the intake manifold head gasket blowing on an 1999' Chevy Suburban?

That is a common problem with the Vortec engines, First place the gasket is not made of much as you can see. Antifreeze eats the gasket up over time. The ORANGE antifreeze is BAD. If the Intake was OVER TORQUED that will cause it to leak/ Go bad too.


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.

What may be the problem is antifreeze is leaking in the engine compartment up by the fire wall in the middle of the motor but not in the vehicle and it is not coming from heater hoses?

if it appears to be coming from where the cylinder head meets the engine block, it is the head gasket. if it appears near the intake manifold and head, it is the intake gasket (or intake AND exhaust gasket on a straight six or Chrysler slant six). if it is coming from the engine block it is a freeze plug. some v-6 and v-8 engines are common for springing coolant leaks at the intake gaskets.
