Pontiac Grand Prix GTP Intake Manifold Gasket May Leak Coolant or Engine Oil

(36 reports)

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. Running the engine with a coolant/oil mix may result in engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct this issue.

These engines generally do not blow the head gaskets. White smoke came out. I thought it was a blown head gasket, but the car only has 62,000 miles on it. It was the plastic lower intake manifold gasket. This one is the supercharged model. Get the metal gasket, do use the plastic ones as you will have the same problem later. Merle Gebers -

I have power steering fluid leakage since I bought the car but the problem is worse in the summertime. Now I have leaks in the oil gasket, and the man at the garage told me that it will probably get worse. Today I had brown smoke start pouring out from beneath my hood and thought there was a fire. It finally stopped and I am not sure what to do now. Don't know if I should even drive the car to a garage. -
