Have you had a chance to get under the car and look around? Head gasket failures are pretty uncommon on the 3800'*... Is it possible that you have some bad intake gaskets?

And how does the car run? As well how much coolant does the car consume?

not ben able to get under it yet it dont use that mutch cooland and it is on the front behind the alt was thinking it was the LIM but seen the coolant on the block under thye head mount area so i am just hoping it is the LIM and just wicking its way down the side of the head gasket it runs good kinda ruff at idel but not bad set of plugs and a PVC will cure that no biggy the temp jumps up real quick to 200 and stays there for the most part but dose spike up to 3/4 on the guage and comes back down witch is due to get changed sunday with a driled 180 and some other stuff like a delco O2 and the pvc and plugs and the tentioner for the SC

Suggestion would be to clean it down really well and keep an eye on it to find the exact location of the leak.

well got it fixed and it was a leak due to lasyness lol

got the alt off and seen all the anti freez and found out some one did the water pump and what not the leak was from the heter hose that plugs in to the watter pump block for some reason they where out and they didnt replace the o-rings lol o well chalk one up[ to the cheep people in the world all that worrying over a 10 cent part lol any how took the time to service the supercharger and do a tuen up new delco O2 and plugs put in a 180 tstat fuel filter and so on

man was that PCV crusty lol it idels so smoth now it is a difrent car :P

on a side note some one alreddy changed the nipple on the LIM to the metal one so one less thing to worry about
