Engine Cooling problem
2001 Pontiac Grand Am 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 93000 miles
hi my name is joe and I just bought a 2001 pontiac grand am se1 v6 3.4l. I noticed at first a little rough idle but not to bad. Yesterday I checked and am seeing coolant and possible oil on drivers side motor, also when I opened the coolant resavoir it was thick and dark brown, I checked my oil and it was normal. I was told this motor is notorious for its intake gasket leak is it that or something else, I also checked in the resavoir and no bubbles would it make a difference because of the thickness of not seeing bubbles, also I dont think there is any smoke other than regular exhaust I smelled it and it just smelled like regular exhaust im going to take it to the dealership and have it looked at on wednesday will it be ok to drive it there I live about 20 miles from it PLEASE HELP!
