I have been unable to drive for the past 2 weeks due to surgery I just had. My bonneville has been sitting almost the entire time. My brother drove it once, for about 4-5 miles total. I went out today to start it up, and take it around the block. I noticed the coolant was (slightly) low, and there was (frozen) condensation on the inside of the oil fill cap. Being that the car has almost 160k miles on it, and it leaks oil from the sides of the LIM, I figured this was going to happen sooner or later.
Here are the pics, so far:
The oil filler cap, notice the frozen condensation.
The oil filler neck, notice the 'pool' of condensation.
The oil pressure seems to be in the normal range, although it was varying slightly every 2-3 secconds.
I found the thread that boosty did when he replaced his,
Are the following all the parts I will need to order? (my Advance does not keep any of it in stock...)
FelPro LIM Gasket: MS95977 ( $45.48 ) --Should i get the GM gasket instead?
FelPro */C Gasket: MS95744 ( $9.24 )
FelPro T/B Gasket: 61024 ( $4.18 )
Help! Coolant Elbow 47065 ( $3.99 )
Inj. O-Rings (3X) ES-70599 ( $2.68 )
$65.57 total, not too bad at all
And when I get in there, if the thermostat looks older, it will be replaced as well.
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: Does this all sound right? Am i forgetting anything?
