1997 Chevrolet Camaro Q&A
1997 Chevrolet Camaro Question: intake manifold gasket or headgasket??
have been losing small bits of coolant for some time, seeing recently oil was very milky and has foam buildup in the crankcase. one mechanic said it has to be a headgasket but the other place i asked said the v6 models never blow headgaskets and manifold is common because its plastic?? anyone had similar issues?? - kil-c
I don't like to use the word never becsuse if you run the engine low on coolant, it could leed to blown head gasket or worse. But I think yor problem will be found at the intke manifold. GM has a bulletin TSB #01-06-01-007B related to upper intake problems. Illustrations on the bulletin show the problem area of plastic degradation from the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) exhaust gas passage. - milesauto
