Reported by Mrs Faye for the Oldsmobile Bravada

I have a 2001 Olds Bravada. & Have been having issues with it since 2010. If I had to do it over I would say forget this SUV and have gotten a car. I've replaced wheelbearings, rear ends, fuel pumps, radiator, engine, oil changes, tires& now when you press the gas it will not accelerate. I am so fed up!!!

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.

Vehicles using the enhanced vortec V6 engine may be hard to start run poorly and/or use to much fuel due to a fuel leak inside the intake manifold plenum. Commonly this is caused by a leaking fuel pressure regulator or fuel line. The fuel system will need to be pressurized with the upper intake manifold removed in order to determine the exact cause of the leak. Removing the "tuning valve" from the upper intake can allow for limited visual inspection without removing the upper intake manifold.
