What gaskets will you need to repair a coolant leak coming from the intake manifold on a 1996 Camaro 3800 V6?

You will need a intake manifold set and possibly a plenum gasket set.

Because it's leaking somewhere. Other than lines in the cooling system, head and intake manifold gaskets are a possibility.

On a 1999 Camaro, the map sensor is located on the back of the intake manifold. The intake manifold is the series of tubing that distributes the air coming into the engine.

Year, make, model and engine info would help but, the intake manifold gaskets are known to leak coolant on many Chevy/GMC engines.

The egr valve should be coming off of the exhaust manifold.

User Avatar

the inlet manifold could Be leaking so check the gaskets or the injector seals

User Avatar

it sounds like your exhaust manifold gaskets are leaking or you half a hole in your Y pipe

You may have bad head gaskets when,you are losing engine coolant and you don't see any leaks.you see a white smoke (steam) coming from the exhaust pipe.you have a sweet smell coming from the exhaust pipe.you see air bubbles in the radiator coolant with the radiator cap off and engine running.

Probably a gasket or seal. Could be the rocker cover gaskets, intake manifold gaskets, or end rail seals. Have even seen the oil pressure sender leak and spray up onto the manifold. Get everything cleaned up real good and you'll be able to see where it's coming from.

The oil leak is coming from the valve cover gasket and leaking onto the exhaust manifold, the rubber valve cover gaskets get hard from the engine heat and start to leak, you will have to replace the rubber valve cover gaskets to stop the oil leak

usually coolant leaks come from bad gaskets... or a bad water pump.. i would say drain the system and run water through the radiator (do NOT drive with water in the radiator, your engine will surely overheat!) and see if you can spot where the coolant is coming from... if it is coming from the engine block then you might have bad gaskets.. if not then it's the water pump.

Also losing coolant i believe. That would most likely be head gaskets. And hopefully only that.

im having the same problem with my 99. i know the V6 engines have problems with the intake manifold gaskets. only problem is my leak is coming from somewhere by the reservoir as well. check the gaskets and see if it is leaking around them. if not...hop on the troubleshoot train that I've gotten onto. good luck bro, they are great cars. i love mine.

You just have to see where it is leaking. There are numberous gaskets and hoses it can be coming from. Have it preasurized and it will be easier to find.

HeyHoward==If it is coolant the engine will overheat quickly and the engine will smoke white smoke. The head gaskets will need replaced. It can be normal condensation if it is pretty clear water. Good luck, Joe

check your coolant levels & if car overheating, might well be the cylinder head gasket is away.

It is on the front of the intake it has three wires coming out of it done had to replace 1 myself the water pump is right below it

User Avatar

If it's not coming from the valve cover gaskets, could be from the rear rail of the intake manifold, or maybe it's from the oil filter seal, or possibly the pipe plug above the oil filter.

User Avatar

the water pump gaskets start to leak (right or left, or both) and the coolant runs down the block to the oil pan/ block joint and appears to be coming from the oil pan. follow the leak closely, and you will probably see that it is coming from above the oil pan in the front.

The oil sending unit is on the back of the engine and they sometimes leak oil if not tight.

Let me guess... You have the 3100 V6, right? A verycommon problem on these engines is premature lower intake manifold gasket cracking. This will usually cause coolant to seep out and collect along the top of the transmission housing. In severe cases, the gasket cracks all the way through, and coolant mixes into the oil. Is there white smoke coming out the tail pipe? If so, you could have a bad head gasket instead, which can mix coolant and oil as well. Either way, you're looking at anywhere from $500-900 for a shop to replace the gaskets. If you have experience taking engines apart, you can do it yourself in one afternoon for about $150 for gaskets and sealant from the local parts store.

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.

User Avatar

its coolant could be a head gasket or the coolant can actually rust trew the block or the head check the dip stick if its a creamy and it smells nasty or check you colant if it smell like cofe then you know coolant is getting in were its not supose to. white is coolant blue is oil and black is fuel hop that can help you

Where was the leak coming from? the coolant has some pathways that go to the intake. that's to warm up the air.the most important question is where the coolant was leaking from?
