The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil.

Buick Rendezvous Questions
We changed the belt, and the battery and the problem still exists. When we accelerate on an incline seems to be the most noticeable.
Trying to start the car and it won't start unless we press the gas pedal down some. We like to use remote start in winter and this will be a major issue if we have to be in the car to press the pedal down. It even does it on warm starts as well.
What car parts do I buy and install to keep the Battery in place? I discovered my battery moved next to the starter and was rubbing against the belt while car engine was running!

I like the feature of the seats folding forward or being able to remove them f...
Bought this car for my wife and I would have been better off getting her a puppy. It is the Ultra model, with all possible upgrades. Granted I bought the car from the dealer wiht 10K on it, we have had major service issues with it and the dealer has done nothing to support me buying another American car brand. The upgraded chrome wheels have all peeled causing valve stem damage and all 4 t...
