1997 Chevrolet 3500 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. Running the engine with a coolant/oil mix may result in engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct this issue.
The inside and outside door handles are prone to breaking.
Power brake systems using "hydro-boost" may leak power steering fluid from the hydro-boost unit located behind the brake master cylinder. Replacement of the hydro-boost unit is the common repair to correct this concern.

I am replacing the Turbo. I was going to up date and move the pmd while I was at it but I am unable to locate it. It is not under the water hose near the AC compressor. Can you advise if there is an alternate location from the factory. We spent hours checking the wiring with no pmd. Thanks.
