Pontiac Grand Am Repair Question
Car cutting off
IAC motor may be needing cleaning.
I have a 94 Pontiac Grand Prix and it burns oil pretty bad, it smokes after a few minutes. I took it in and I was told I need the following leaks repaired:
1. Oil Pan Gasket
2. Intake Gasket
3. Valve Gasket
with a grand total of $1600!!!!! I am a novice at repairing cars, but this sounds crazy! Anyway I could do any of these myself? Im a novice but willing. Please help.
3.1 or 3.4 motor?
Check your email. The valve covers get done when you do the intake gasket. Why do you need the oil pan?
go to this post:
this is just what I was told to replace. I am just trying to save as much money as possible.
My opinion is to do the intake your self, get hold of the guy doing the intake this weekend ASAP and see what he runs into and tools he used and then decide if it is right for you. You need to see why you need an oil pan. Have yet to do one at our shop...but that isn't everthing.
