1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

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 water pump may develop a coolant leak resulting in an engine overheating condition.

The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid; it should be replaced.
