I wish I knew the answer because today, after starting my 96 we got a leaking on the drive way of antifreeze. I jacked up the car and let it run trying to trace it. I see a little pool/bubble of antifreeze right between the heads on the drivers side. I am assuming the gasket on a car that only has 52,000 miles! Anyone know how much has to come apart on top to get at these gaskets? How many hours? What a service garage would charge?Answeryes there are problems with the gasket (there is a recall / tsb ) for certain models. the most common failure lets coolant and oil mix. teltale sign is low coolant frequently and if you pull the dipstick the oil looks like "cocoa".i have a 96 with the 3.1 and from research i have done it appears the "permanent" dexcool antifreeze eats the gasket. I'm in the Chicago area and it cost me $512.00 to have the job done. the problem is with the lower intake manifold gasket. go a "Google" on lumina lower intake and follow the leads.
take it to a mechanic
that's what it is, i have a lumina, had same problem, replaced the intake manifold. run like a top since
The intake gasket is the gasket that conncects from your air filter into your intake manifold
if you had it heat high enough it very likely worped your heads and or damaged the head gasket
Yes, you must install a new intake manifold gasket.
Simple method... get some carb cleaner or starting fluid. With the engine running, spray the area where the intake manifold gasket is. If you experience sudden bursts of increased RPMs, you have an intake manifold gasket issue.
between the head and intake manifold
Between the intake manifold and the cylinder head.
Assuming this is a 4.3L engine, the upper intake manifold gasket would be between the upper intake manifold and the lower intake manifold.
Remove the intake manifold retaining bolts from your 1996 Chevy Astro Van. Remove the manifold gasket and clean the surface. Reverse the process to install the new intake manifold gasket.
jaguar 2001 Lower Engine Intake Manifold Gasket
i had this problem the intake manifol gasket is blowed
Remove the intake manifold retaining bolts from your 1993 Mercedes-Benz manifold. Remove the old manifold gasket. Clean the surface and put the new gasket on.
The only fix for a bad intake gasket is to remove the intake manifold and replace the gasket.
Remove the intake manifold retaining bolts on your 2003 Chevrolet Malibu. The manifold will come off. Remove the manifold gasket and clean the surface. Put the new manifold gasket on and reverse the process.
Intake manifold gasket
Sounds like a blown headgasket or intake manifold gasket. Sounds like a blow intake gasket to me...It happened to My 86 Mustang and my 96 Lumina.
around 6-7 hours according to AllData
If it is leaking from a bad head gasket, it is because of a bad head gasket. If it is leaking from a bad intake manifold gasket, it is because of a bad intake manifold gasket.
your intake manifold gasket is cracked...replace it and you should be fine...if it continues you may have a bigger problem
Try Retightening intake manifold bolts first...............
start with water pump. If its a V6 3.1L have the intake manifold gasket checked. You may have a coolant leak.
The gasket is between the head and the intake.
You may have the problem of your intake manifold gaskets. They are a problems on the lumina. I had to have mine replaced due to the same thing. Also check if your coolant is mixing with your oil if it is. Than it is definitally your intake manifold gasket.
if its a 3.1v6,then it is a intake manifold gasket problem, the 3.1 a noted for this!! check to see if gasket is bad.
