2001 Pontiac Aztek 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.

Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.

The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid and should be replaced if this is the case.

I bought my 2001 Aztek in March 2009 and I like it alot. It now has 146,000 miles-when I bought it, it had less than 100,000 and had one owner and was well maintained.

One thing I have just started to notice is the transmission is acting funny, being an automatic it feels like it i...
