Default Hey new member over here!

Hey all! Just wanted to say Hi, new to the forum not so new to the big GM cars. I grew up with my Dad owning a couple GM'* I learned to drive in a 85 Pontiac Wagon with the faux wood decals! That itself is probably the reason I love Big Station Wagons. Anyway my current car is a 2000 LeSabre, I bought it in 2012 from the original owner with 136000 Kms the only things I have done is put HID headlights in and tinted the windows and normal wear and tear stuff. I am not that big of a poster usually read most everything tho, looking forward to learning as much as I can from this group as it seems there are lots of knowledgable people here.

Welcome to the forums Jason!

A tip, if the LeSabre has never had its Lower Intake Manifold gaskets replaced, I'd consider having it done ASAP, these things can leak and can cause engine failure if they happen, and are let go long enough to get coolant in a cylinder, you want the aluminum framed gasket, and not the old nylon 6,6 gasket.

Hey thanks for the warm welcome everyone!
GunsOfNavarone I do post when I need to in forums but have found that I can answer most of my question with the search function.

2k2cse no pics of the car that do it justice anyway, when I get some decent ones I will get them up for sure.

WilliamE I am not sure of the lower manifold gasket, the original owners son in law was there when I looked at the car (old man was Italian and spoke little English) and he informed me that the upper was done and the plastic intake itself was replaced at the same time. I have my suspicions it was not done or done poorly since I am seeing some clues of a tiny external leak but it might not have been cleaned enough and I am seeing the leftovers from the old leak.

The upper plastic UIM could have been replaced due to EGR related leaks, you really want to also remove the lower manifold, and change that gasket, and also swap the current EGR stove pipe for the reduced diameter one that come in the Dorman UIM Kit.
