mikey383 says above- "It seems as if the intake gasket leaking on an SSEi is a rare condition," but it'* listed as the second most common problem in the common problems thread (second one) at the beginning of this forum: 2-LOWER INTAKE GASKET "Symptom: Your coolant consumption is high,coolant leak . . ."
I was just told yesterday I need to have the lower intake manifold gasket replaced because I'm leaking antifreeze. I had no problems at all, but we looked under the hood just to check fluids and the antifreeze container was empty. It never drips under the car so I never saw any signs of a leak either. I had the oil changed two weeks ago and it was fine - now this
So for about $500, they'll replace that gasket the valve cover gasket. Anything else they should do while it'* totally apart? Please comment
if you have any suggestions, they're doing the work tomorrow.
Boosted Bville said the dealer said his gasket is leaking so I posted in this thread to mention that it'* listed as a common problem.
Lastly - a heartfelt thanks to all of you here who help !! You're the best!
