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. Running the engine with a coolant/oil mix may result in engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct this issue.

2004 Buick Rendezvous RecallsThe Fuel Tank Inlet Check Valve Can Crack and Leak
Due to variations in the manufacturing process, or exposure to high heat may lead to a fracture in the tank inlet check valve. Fuel vapors may pass through the fracture and accumulate on the side of the fuel tank. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel tank. The recall began December 4, 2007. The GM recall number is 06230.
Contamination of the ignition relay contacts may cause high resistance inside the relay. This can affect signals to the powertrain control module, resulting in intermittent vehicle stalling. The vehicle may not restart immediately, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the ignition relay to correct this concern. This recall is scheduled to begin during May 2005. The General Motors recall number is 05014.
The structural support for the liftgate latch may be inadequate and could allow the latch to separate from the liftgate in certain severe crash conditions. If the liftgate were to open in a crash, an occupant could be ejected from the vehicle. Dealers will add structural reinforcements to the liftgate in the area adjoining the latch assembly.
