Question Asked: onstar engine problem

the check light stays on. Had diagnostic test at GM garage, it coded PO 171 and PO 172; meaning leaking head gaskets and leaking intake manifold. Car never has overheated and have added very little antifreeze. Two other tests run and they both coded PO 171 and PO 174.Noticeable surge with small miss at idle speed.Have 94,000 miles,would like to keep. Any help would be appreciated.

had diagnostic test run from GM garage;results were code 170/171,intake leaks and head gasket.A second opinion gave different results-oxygen sensors.Service engine light stays on,what to do? Engine has never overheated,and no anti freeze loss. Does have small pulsing noticeable on rpm hand;also poor gas mileage.
