It'* a 93 series 1 with plastic upper intake. I checked the throttle body gasket like you said it looked fine but the coolant has some rust in it.

Bad gasket on lower intake manifold. Search for the thread I did as my son placed lots of pictures and watch that youtube link. It was great.

If you have a helper, and its above zero whereever you are, its not that bad a job. Except for that %$#@pipe!

Ok got it torn down and the lower intake gaskets are new. It looks like the head gaskets are new too because they're fel-pro. What should i check next?

I think you should start a new thread with the issue in the title. Maybe duplicate it in the buick forum.

if someone changed the head gaskets, it could have overheated for them and warped or cracked the head. you should have them inspected by some one who knows what to look for
