LOWER INTAKE MANIFOLD GASKET FAILURE CAUSING LEAKAGE OF COOLANT INTO THE ENGINE AND ONTO PAVEMENT. THIS TYPE OF GASKET FAILURE IS UNACCEPTABLE AT SUCH LOW MILES. AUGUST UPDATE: SINCE FILING THE COMPLAINT, I HAD THE INTAKE MANIFOLD GASKET REPLACED (ALONG WITH THE OTHER GASKETS, SEALS, AND RINGS THAT ARE TYPICALLY REPLACED IN THIS PROCEDURE) BY THE OLDS DEALER HERE IN MY AREA. THIS WAS DONE AT MILEAGE 51947 ON 2/11/03 FOR MY 2000 OLDS ALERO THAT WAS PURCHASED NEW ON 7/6/2000. AS FOR COST, I WAS ABLE TO DO SOME NEGOTIATING WITH THE SERVICE MANAGER. ABOUT ONE MONTH EARLIER, I HAD TAKEN THE CAR IN TO GET THE DRIVERS SIDE WINDOW REPAIRED. IT HAD FALLEN OUT OF TRACK (FOR THE SECOND TIME), AND I RAISED THE ISSUE THAT THIS WAS UNACCEPTABLE, AND THAT THEIR COMPETITOR CARS DO NOT DO THIS (NON GM VEHICLES). HAVING NEGOTIATED A LOW PRICE ON THIS WINDOW REPAIR, THE SERVICE MANAGER REMEMBERED ME FOR THE INTAKE MANIFOLD REPAIR. I RAISED A NUMBER OF ISSUES AND FACTS SURROUNDING THE INTAKE MANIFOLD GASKET AND WAS ABLE TO GET THE ENTIRE REPAIR DONE FOR $276.75, ALONG WITH AN OIL CHANGE AND SERPENTINE BELT REPLACEMENT, INCLUDED. I HAVE NOT NOTICED AND PROBLEMS WITH COOLANT LEAKAGE SINCE THE REPAIR WAS PREFORMED. ANOTHER CONCERN THAT I HAVE IS, SINCE MY REPAIR WAS DONE IN FEBRUARY 2003, BUT THE SERVICE BULLETIN IS DATED MARCH 2003, WERE OLD PARTS USED IN MY REPAIR AND WILL THIS HAPPEN AGAIN?

Now lower prices on ALL K&N products. Save up to 15% / $85.
