1997 Chevrolet 2500 Pickup Problems

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.

The inside and outside door handles are prone to breaking.

The windshield wipers may not work intermittently due to a faulty wiper motor control board. Our technicians tell us that lightly taping on the wiper motor when the fault occurs should temporarily get the wipers working again. Some vehicles were recalled for this problem and some were not. You will need to check with your local dealer to find out if a specific vehicle was included.

I have only one code PO740

The engine is running.

I am continuing to pop a MIL code of P0102 for MAF sensor low voltage. Performed all voltage and operational checks listed in guide book and everything works as advertized. Replaced MAF sensor twice, but continue to get the code.

What else should I be checking?
