Just had upper and lower intake gaskets replased with Fal pro gaskets today for 500 bucks to find out the coolant is still leaking from somewhere behind the alternator. Timing cover? Is this gonna be expensive to get fixed? There's only 60,000 mi. on car. 97 century.. any ideas are welcome. Cant afford to fix any more things that are NOT broke!... :/
Where would my coolant be leaking from? Its leaking behind the alternator. on 1997 Buick Century

Take it back and let them fix it, if 'they' diagnosed it!..? I can't get by with crap like that... and don't want too!! Can't charge for a job that isn't finished! Good chance the intake igaskets are still leaking.! However the 3.1 engines are not really known for leaks other than the water pump!!
