classic signs of an upper intake aren't only water in the oil.

Highlanders car left last night...all fixed up.
His intake failed..and filled the intake with coolant. It didn't get into the oil, only the clyinders. They were hydrolocked. Pull sparkplug on front driverside..right next to the throttle body.. look for wetness and smelling like coolant.

We cranked Highlanders over to blow the coolant out..and put in new plugs..to find out.. his car drank so much.. we had to use a compressor and rubber tubing to blow the cylinders clean and dry.

Then.. blow off the new plugs and it fired right up.

If you pull that plug and it'* soaked.. your upper intake probably failed. Sounds like it'* never been done before.

well it still didnt start. my oil wasnt milky but it was much lighter colored considering it shouldnt be as i going to do my oil change this week, so im guessing some coolant is in there. Brought it to a trusted shop so ill see what the damage is.
Im in Grand haven/ holland area of michigan if it matters.

thanks for all the help thus far if anyone has had this done professionally let me know so i know im not getting ripped off when the price comes around and ill post what they price me at and ill post what they say they find.

well ill hopefully be getting a quote from the shop very soon, til then if it really is that much cheaper to have some club members help me out and they are skilled enough to help me bang it out that would be great too. Either way i need my car so if those who can and if you know any let me know i guess and we can see what we can do. I have a serviceable garage just not a ton of tools, nor time to make all these repairs especially rippin the old 3800 apart.

thanks this all has helped me out quite a bit keep it coming and lets get them michiganders on roll call!

well shop will be doing it. I had flooded the engine im guessing cuz i had to gas it so much when it was sputtering. As well the vaccum line off the evap could have contributed to that, but i needed new plugs. not too mention the upper was totally failed and the lower was starting to leak but didnt cause my problem. overall im kinda pissed about this happening but i cant help it the shop is being good about it and any repair they can do in a day and a half and not cause me as much trouble or wallet pains as my tranny im cool with that.


thanks all for the help so check one more bonnie off with a failed UIM LIM failure!

See the thread entitled " Plastic plenum ..." There'* a picture of my intake filled with coolant! My oil was also a little light colored but not milky.

In his case the cylinders were hydrolocked and wouldn't dry themselves out. We used the compressor to blow them out.
