I found out today - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


General GM Chat When starting new posts, please specify YEAR, MAKE, MODEL, ENGINE type, and whatever modifications you have made. Chat about all things GM (and related cars). Off-topic stuff should be in the Lounge, and all Model specific mechanical problems should be posted in the proper forum.

Not be a doomsayer, but....
Just hope it was repaired soon enough, not like mine. The coolant contamination caused the internals to slow disentigrate. About 6 months later, BOOM! New wngine and tranny.

Keep the oil good and clean, and you should be fine, tho....

Garb.. SC'd cars don't have failing upper manifolds

Sounded like you were looking for some ammo to justify the SSEi you want.

so, if he were to have the post 1999 UIM, he would never have to worry about the UIM gasket again? is that what the redesign was all about?

No.... From what we have found there was no revision of the Delphi Upper Intake .... The change was made to the Lower intake, they used a smaller diameter diameter stovepipe that would not contact the plastic surface...

we have heard of a couple of 00 Upper intakes fail... So anything goes..
