I've got an update to the problem(*)
Too bad the series III won't work
It was worth asking though....
No, I didn't buy the car through a GM dealership. Yes I have the money for the extended warranty, I've got about 2 grand... not sure how much a new engine costs?
The recall that was done in '03 I don't believe replaced the whole UIM it was just some small part wasn't it?
My dad throroughly looked at the engine this morning. He did take the short tube and oil cap and there isn't the "milkshake" that i've seen on other vehicles, but somehow the guy at Autozone was sure it was antifreeze. My dad didn't rule this out but there isn't the milkshake look he was looking for which would guarantee a leak occured. Also, there isn't oil in the coolant when we checked either.
After this, I took the car to Firestone a few hours ago and got the results. They said that the oil has a slimy feel to it which may indicate antifreeze. If their is a leak and considering it has only been one week since the oil was changed, it may not be extremely noticable at this point except for that slimy feel they felt. They did verify that there is a tear or something in the cylinder 3 wire and recomend my spark plugs and wires get changed.... their the original ones that came with the car. They couldn't tell if the fuel filter was original or not. I also got the fantastic news that my front driver'* side wheel bearing is loose! This just added a wonderful twist the the problem, lmao!
