CAR IS DRINKING ANTIFREEZE

1997 Pontiac Bonneville • 75,000 miles

Ihave a 1997 Pontiac Bonneville with 75000 miles. About 2 quarts of anti-freeze leaked thru the intake manifold and the car would not start. A local GM dealer pulled the engine apart and say the engine is ruined. What do you think. Can about 2 quarts of anti-freeze leaked thru the intake manifold into the engine ruin the engine?

Can hydrolock the engine-inspect the cylinders for coolant

The GM dealers shop says the anti-freeze damaged several internal parts and recommend replacing the engine. Manifold and head gaskets; other parts damaged.

Could be, will it turn over manually when turning the crankshaft pulley-if not its a goner
