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.

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.

Try Retightening intake manifold bolts first...............

your intake manifold gasket is cracked...replace it and you should be fine...if it continues you may have a bigger problem

The gasket is between the head and the intake.

start with water pump. If its a V6 3.1L have the intake manifold gasket checked. You may have a coolant leak.

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.

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.

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.

Yes. Antifreeze is actually pumped through the intake manifold. If the gasket is bad it is possible that it leaks out
