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.

2005 Pontiac Aztek Reviews
Just turned 92,000 miles and my baby still gets perfect smog readings, 20 MPG in the city, and is the best car I have ever had (been driving since 1968). If they were still making them, I would have bought another one last year, when we bought another new car. I still consider my 7+ year old car my #1 vehicle, have put less than 3000 miles on the new SUV. Those of who never bought one don't know what you are missing!
We love the interior of this car. It is very spacious on the inside and has a lot of cargo room. We have put almost 40,000 miles on the car at this point and have not had a single problem.
