1996 Pontiac Trans Sport ProblemsIntake Manifold Gasket May Leak Coolant or Engine Oil
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 spark plugs should be replaced every 100,000 miles. Our technicians recommend replacing the spark plug wires also at this time.

Sometimes works sometimes doesn't. The wipers always work on high but only sometimes on low or mist. Washer pump sometimes goes along with the blades and often doesn't. Garage says needs new switch assembly but no longer stocked. Any wrecker source?
