Well, I know that this has been brought up a few times here before, but some specifics from this article, I want to point out.
- The article is really about the LIM gaskets, which they show a picture of and we know continued to exist until at least 2005, when we now know GM released the improved aluminum framed gaskets now sold at dealers.
- Then they quote a GM Service Bulletin that is obviously talking about the UIM manifold failure. Different issue, similar result. Someone got their research mixed up. Doesn't help the case IMO.
- Note that they list the vehicles potentially affected:
1995-1998/2000-2003 Pontiac Bonneville
1997-1998/2000-2003 Pontiac Grand Prix
Why no 1999?
Just a few thoughts....
