Ron: Would that include coolant leaks at the throttle body? I have a '99 SLE I bought new, and now has 104K miles on it. The car has been reliable as an anvil, but it has a small leak around the throttle body when the engine is warm.
I find myself adding coolant about every 6-700 miles now and it'* beginning to bug. Since I have to do the job anyway, would it be worth it to pull the top manifold off and do as you suggest, or is perhaps just replacing the thoittle body gasket a better idea?
No choclate milk in the crankcase, by the way.
By the way, I'm a newbie here and this is a great forum! This is the first Pontiac I've owned later than a 1972 model and despite being a car guy of some 40 years, there'* stuff under that hood that I don't recognize!
