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. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.

1996 Buick Century Reviews
My grandfather bought this car brand new in 96' and did nothing more than the usual tune ups, oil changes, brakes, tires belts, etc... Sadly he passed away in 2007 and the car was left to me with approx. 92,000 miles on it. There is now around 98,000 on it and is in excellent shape other than a few dents and dings that I caused lol. Overall thought, I think this is an excellent car and would reccommend to anyone to buy a buick. Very reliable.
