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.

I have 114,000 miles on the car and it runs great. The worst problems are expensive little issues I have never encountered on any other car. The passenger side door handle fell off at 90,000 miles, answer from the dealer, it happens all the time (cost $150.00). GM had a recall on the Buick and other high end SUV's but did not include the Solstice. Had an adjustment to the parking break and the dealer broke the connection, answer from the dealer, it happens all the time, replace rear caliper (cost $320.00). These are things that shouldn't break. Besides these issues the car has run beautifully and I have no engine, transmission issues. It is fun to drive and I hope to get another 100,000 miles out of it.
Purchased 95 Bonne in 2006 w/106m miles, supercharged SE w/ auto climate controls, leather w/black exterior and love this car. Replaced the supercharger and manifold gaskets and have not had any issues since. Now have 164m as I avoid driving this car on bad weather days, trying to keep it from rusting prematurely in this MN salt environment. I have had several early to mid 90's Bonnes and several 2000+ Bonnes and have found the older Bonnes to be much more reliable than the 2000's.
I bought this car new and have driven it like I stole it ever since. almost 400 000 kms on the engine and it still works great and never uses a drop of oil. 5spd man. trans/clutch and most major parts are original- with the exception of the starter and battery. shifts the same as new- the brakes have sucked since day one- underpowered for the car and constantly needing repairs- sticking, seizing you name it-its had a devine clunking noise from the rear suspension since it was three months old that can be fixed but only lasts as long as it takes to do the repair- the body has held up well, have had no issues with the electrical with the exception of the heater blower but the air conditioning has been a constant pain and I have given up repairing it as it just keeps crapping out.and wheel bearings/hub assemblies are only good for about 20 k a constant issue- still looks good inside and out/ still drive it for my winter beater- not a bad car considering it had a huge number of recalls in the first six months of its life!
