My car was overheating a few days ago. The mechanic unplugged some sealer from the radiator and it has been working great since, however, according to the mechanic, the Intake Gasket is leaking. He quoted me about $700. My coolant levels haven't changed since I got the car back 2 weeks ago (I marked the overflow tank) and the car has been running cool ever since. I see some wet spots on the right side of my engine but I'm not sure if those were there from before or not. Could I use a coolant sealer on it? Or should I replace the intake gasket? Or should I leave it alone? I basically need the car to run for at least a year longer. It is an Oldsmobile Cutlass Cierra 1994 with 28,000 miles on the engine (the car also has a Salvage title). Thanks for the help!
have the same problem?
