G.M. claim to fame the pontiac montana. the lower intake mainfold is actualy part of the cylinder heads. when you change in intake gasket you actualy have to remove the valve covers to do this. water runs threw the intake manifold and if the gasket leaks water will get into the engine oil. loss of coolent under pressure will cause the engine tempature guage to go up. normaly the customers will think the headgasket is leaking or cracked but G.M. has numerous updated gaskets for the intake manifold, i believe it changes part numbers 5 or 6 times. ya for dex-cool
