Default Definitely a coolant leak.

I am one person that does not like to start a new thread if it can't be helped, but alas the search did not produce for me.

I have an 01 Bonne SSEi. I know it has a coolant leak and a valve cover leak (oil). I keep seeing things about a stovepipe modification for the EGR and have noticed that it is only on the non-supercharged engines. Is that the case? If I have the supercharger, do I have to worry about that?

I have done many head gasket replacements (all with good results) and have only needed to buy a Head Gasket Kit for it. Since I don't want to replace the head gaskets on this Bonne and believe the only problem is the LIM gasket, what is the expected gaskets I need and is there a place I can go and get a kit. If nobody knows of a place to get a full kit, can you list the all the gaskets I will need for the LIM job.

This may be pushing it also, but if you all know of a place I can get a blow-up schematic of a supercharged engine, that would be great also.

Now I will leave you all alone.

Thanks
Shaun

That modification for the stovepipe is for the non-supercharged engines. You're in the clear.

Check out my thread from the exact job I just completed:

If you've done head gaskets, you can certainly handle this job. Have a torque wrench handy, plenty of rags, and a Chiltons manual and you'll do just fine.

That is what I was looking for.

Alright now, how about websites to get a lot of this stuff for the LIM gasket swap. I like to get kits, as they are usually cheaper altogether.
