1999 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Q&A
1999 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Question: Intake Manifold Gasket Replaced Yesterday, No Oil Today. What happened?
The Suburban had a slow coolant leak and the shop said that is was my intake manifold gasket. $800.00 later I picked it up and drove home. The next day I was running an errand and after about 10 miles it sounded like it through a rod. Pulled out the dip stick and it was smoking a lot. walked to a store to buy more oil but it stall sounded so bad I had to call a tow truck. It appears all my oil was gone. What went wrong? Did the shop make an error when installing the gasket? - 99sub
Need a little more info. 1- Did the oil leak out of it after the repair, see a puddle of oil where it was parked? 2- Did the intake leak coolant into the oil before the repair, milky color oil & over full? - pushrod
