losing antifreeze and overheating. Oil seems to be milky. I've read posts about 4.3 and dexcool and think it may be upper manifold gasket. How much to repair and is it a fix for someone handy and has the tools?

Hi: Keep in mind, you could have a head gasket leaking too. You may want to do a compression test before ripping into it. As far as the intake, parts should be under 50 bucks if you can do it yourself.
