There will be a great loss in power especially up hills and if there is a head gasket leak there will be a loud puttering sound from the head gasket area.

You may also notice the problem gets worse as you drive the vehicle.

There are many gaskets on any car engine. If you are asking about head gaskets, they are between the cylinder head(s) and the engine block. The cylinder head is under the valve cover. --------------

No you dont put any thing on head gaskets, the thing to do is get a surface grind done on the head and the block if needed.

Hello: I have a 1991 Lincoln 3.8 I paid a non-dealer shop $535.00 to repair the rear head, only. This price included having the head sent out to be milled (required), and also new head bolts (also required)and all gaskets/parts.

I'm assuming your grand am has a 3400 v6 which are known for intake and head gaskets leaking. so its possible that one of those gaskets are leaking so bad that coolant is leaking from intake/heads down onto your valvetrain and then down into your oil pan. more than likely its your intake gaskets leaking.

No the head gaskets are dependent on bore size

Yes you do halft to pull the head, because the gaskets are under the head.

YES. The intake gaskets have NOTHING to do with the head gaskets. It is a very common problem that the intake gaskets blow. It is not common for the head gaskets to leak unless the engine was over heated, and I mean HOT.

Between the head and the engine block.
