I removed the intakes, and the upper intake (top of lower) was an inch deep in coolant. The lower intake manifold gaskets were cracked up a little. I replaced all the gasked, replace plugs and wires, and reassembled. The car took a little to crank over, but ran for about 15 mins, and started displaying problems again, so I shut it off. The car would not start again. I pulled the upper intake again and there is coolant in there. I did not notice and cracks or anything, and was very throrough about checking everything... any ideas?
raviann, you should get the oil drained right away. As well the upper intake will have failed inside the EGR passage area.
Please read this Techinfo article to bring yourself up to speed on the true problem. http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...e=article&k=38
You will want to get a new upper intake manifold and possibly change the stovepipe diameter depending if it has ever been done.
