Ok so my mom has a 98 bonneville and i want it she was driving it home one day and it died so she had it towed to a local shop the guy said there was water in the spark plugs so the head gaskets are bad or the head is cracked. from everything ive seen these 3800 dont normally have head gasket or head issues i want to fix the bonne and make it my daily driver it has about 100k on the motor and did run great until this happened the bad part is shes in california and im in nevada so i cant just drive over and take a look at it myself. from the symtoms what would you guy suggest? UIM? LIM? i dont have alot of money so i want to be very educated on this subject before i dive in and make that road trip to fix it and bring it back with me.
i am a certified kia/mazda/Subaru mechanic. just not familiar with the bonnevilles. i have a full set of hand tools available where the bonnevillies located. Please any information on this subject would be greatly appreciated i searched alot of the forums but found nothing similar to what im experiencing. Please help!
