Is there a problem with the intake manifold gasket on the Chevy Lumina?
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?
1999 lumina ran hot and then i changed out the water pump and the thermostat but still red lining I was told it might be the intake manifold gasket seal is this correct how much should it cost to fix?
Ive replaced the thermostat water pump and flushed the radiator on my 96 Chevy lumina and now it jumps from 125 to 260 while im driving It also overheats while im driving.?
What is causing the Antifreeze to leak in my a 1998 Chevy lumina when there are not any spots on the ground?
maybe it's not the intake gasket. Maybe it is the intake manifold itself, they were bad about cracking. Also there is a coolant line that runs under the manifold that likes to leak as well. It's more likely to be a ruptured/cracked intake manifold as this is a common problem on these cars. See detailed info on the problem (and how to fix it) here: http://www.autoclinix.com/Manifold.htm
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…
It should take about an hour to change the intake manifold gasket. This part can be replaced by taking off the intake manifold cover, cleaning the old gasket off and sealing a new gasket in the space and tightening the bolts. When other things are in the way, like the alternator, it will take longer.
