1997 Buick Skylark 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 140000 miles
I had filled the coolant and about 3-4 weeks later it was gone. No outside leaks.
I may be getting coolant in the oil. Yesterday I checked the dipstick and the oil was light metallic brown. Just what I would expect from orange Dex-Cool mixed in. But this morning the oil looked normal.
I can probably do the intake manifold gasket and I think I know where it is : -) It is the unit that connects right to the large air hose? I have a Hayne's manual but they are very poor in pictures.
Is there anyplace oline with decent pictures?
Also I am assuming that if it is the lower manifold gasket, the engine would have to be hauled? The same it it is a head gasket?
Most times I do my own, plugs and fluid changes etc. I just need a good reference. Thanks.
