Buick Roadmaster Problems

Auto Level Ride Compressor May Fail

The auto level ride compressor may fail causing the rear of the vehicle to ride to high or too low.

Idler/Pitman Arm May Wear and Cause Looseness in Steering

The idler arm or pitman arm may wear causing looseness in the steering. When this occurs the front suspension will not be able to be aligned correctly.

Intake Manifold Gaskets May Leak Coolant or Engine Oil

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.
