Response From HT

You also want to look hard at the intake manifold gasket. That can also leak coolant into the oil and it is very common on that engine.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

? Water (presumably coolant) in oil pan should have mixed and made a creamy oil rather quickly. Overheating is probably low on coolant in the engine not just where you add. I'd be checking out head gasket problems on this. Don't allow it to overheat or it will just get worse,

Tom; It shows that you edited this post? Obviously, didn't do a spell check. Some editor!

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

LOL - I don't change spelling unless I'm certain it causes confusion OR would state that I change a spelling. That post was tagged on a looooooong thread from some issue with only "exhaust" mentioned as the issue so I moved it to be on it's own as a new thread,

2003 Impala 3.4 base 240 degrees no heater

Question From kevin10987 on 2003 Impala 3.4 base 240 degrees no heater


About a year ago, I had a thermostat put on my car because there was no heat and the temperature gauge was running about 160 degrees. Anyway, that fixed that.
Now, just recently (I got it parked and I am not driving right now), the car has no heat coming out of the heater and the temperature gauge goes up to 240 degrees and
then comes on down and then goes back up and then goes down and then goes back up and keeps doing that. I have added antifreeze (all purpose) and it seems to be getting
rid of it because the last time I started it, I filled the radiator up and the overfill coolant reservoir up and after looking inside both of them, I can not see the antifreeze.

Even after I fill the radiator and reservoir up, I have no heat. I had my dad (he's has a great mechanical mind but not a mechanic by profession) to tell me what thinks is the problem
and he told me it most likely needs a intake manifold gaskets replaced. He said that the 3.4 engine is known for needing the intake manifold gaskets replaced. I found a metal intake
gasket kit for $55.00 on eBay which is suppose to be the upgraded kit that the dealership would install on it if you took it to the dealership.

Did I waste my money or do you think this might possibly fix it? I going to have a retired mechanic that still does work on the side to complete the job because it'll be a lot less expensive
then have the known franchise garages and dealership garage complete the job.

What worries me is that there is still no heat even after I completely fill up both radiator and reservoir. If the intake gaskets are worn, then would that still have a no heat effect even after
adding plenty of antifreeze to the entire system.

When I bought the car used, I didn't think about it at the time but it had stuff in the radiator like someone tried stopping the leaks up in the coolant system with some kind of stop leak product.
It is pretty nasty.

But, granted, I got the car for $2800. At the time I bought it, kbb was showing an excellent condition impala for my year would have been $4000, so if this fixes it then I'll still be in the ball park.

If an intake gasket kit won't fix the problem, then what else can it be. If the thermostat was going bad then wouldn't I still have heat if the car is getting up to 240 degrees (red mark is 260 degrees). Heater core could be plugged up because the gunk that was added to stop the coolant leaks but why is the engine getting hot?

I appreciate some input. I'm not mechanically savvy at all. All I am told now is by my dad that has a hell of a lot more insight on mechanical stuff than I do and he told me get the intake gaskets replaced.

I don't think the head gaskets are worn because there is no white smoke coming out of my car's tail pipe and there is no antifreeze in my oil. My oil is very clean. I get that changed ever 4,000 miles. The engine seems to have good compression (the last time I drove it), but it is just keeps cycling up to 240 degrees as I drive it. I never got pass that mark. I'm guessing that stop leak gunk is starting to not work as well as it has been. Like I said, the gunk was in there before I bought it. Yeah, I should have guessed that I would had problems but it seem to do alright and I thought if I could get through a couple of years then $2800 is not a too bad of a price. Also, the car had 151,000 miles when I got it, so I thought it would had at least many years of life left in it before needing some repairs.

Response From kevin10987

Thanks for recommending a pressure test. I lucked out and found my intake or head gasket was not leaking. My radiator was busted. I guess someone tried plugging the radiator up with stop leak.

I was surprised that a radiator for my car is very cheap (compared to the parts store). It was about $58 for a brand new lifetime warranty radiator. I'm going to replace the hoses and flush out all that stop leak from my motor and give the car some clean delicious coolant.

Response From Hammer Time

Stop leak hardens when it hits air so don't plan on getting that out. You have a new radiator so it's probably the heater core that will still have problems.

Response From Hammer Time

Intake gaskets will not be your problem unless it is leaking externally. There is no way for the coolant to be drawn into a cylinder from an intake gasket on that engine and the gaskets won't be metal. The head gaskets are very common on that engine and in fact I am in the middle of doing my own 3.4 head gaskets.
Thge first thing you need to do is pressure test the system. The leak could be as simple as a hose or water pump.

Response From kevin10987 Top Rated Answer

I had a family member look at the engine. We started the vehicle up and looked at the water pump and could not see see anything leaking.
On the driver's side of the engine (way down low), there is some green stuff on the side of the engine. This is the only place I can obviously see
a leak. My hoses aren't wet with antifreeze or I don't see any wet spots.

Of course, I'll see if the retired person can pressure check the coolant system for me prior to replacing the intake gasket. The intake gasket that I purchase
says that they are metal gaskets ( link deleted ....... not allowed ). These gaskets cost $130.00 at Auto Zone. One eBay, $54.90. From eyeballing
the picture, they look exactly the same.

I hope a pressure check will determine something like a water pump or radiator hose, but I think gaskets have to be leaking because someone put quite a bit of stop leak gunk in it.

If it is the head gaskets, why isn't it sending a bunch of white smoke out the car's tail pipe. Also, I smelled of the exhaust and it don't smell of antifreeze. It just smells like normal exhaust
smoke.

My dad told me he had a 1999 Chevrolet Lumina. He said he replaced the radiator, and water pump and both of those didn't fix it so I guess that is his decision it needs intake gaskets. But I'll
play it safer than that and go with your recommendation of having I pressure check.

Does a pressure check tools function differently than just starting the vehicle up and seeing where it might be leaking. I mean, isn't there pressure in the coolant system if you start the car up. I understand you don't have any gauges to see the pressure readings but it looks like to be me that if you start the car up and create the pressure that way then it would do the same thing. Unless a pressure check tool puts more pressure into the system forcing more antifreeze through the leaks.

Thanks for responding! I appreciate it very much!

Response From Hammer Time

There is no reason in the world to use metal gaskets on the intake. The sealing surface is rubber anyway and the rest of the gasket does nothing but hold position.

You shouldn't be ordering anything until you have verified a leak with a pressure test anyway.

If somebody put sealer in there, then you have probably already trashed the radiator and heater core. There is still a very good chance you have a blown head gasket.

Response From kevin10987

I'll get it pressured check. I guess if it is the head gaskets, then it will hell of a lot more than intake gasket replacement. I was told he did an intake gasket replacement for someone for $250 labor. So head gasket will be twice the amount of work. So I hope he can do it for $500.

Response From Hammer Time

You'll also have a couple hundred in machine shop charges to get the heads pressure tested and planed.

Response From kevin10987

I love the car and want to get it fixed. I fell in love with the 2003 Impala. Don't care for the newer ones so much. They look alright, but they're not my 2003 Impala. I went from a 2.2 engine to a 3.4 engine and damn there is a difference. Just as good gas mileage or better once out on the highway going about 70 mph and acceleration is far superior to the 2.2. Not sure if I could ever go with anything lower again.

I want to keep this car running for a decade or two. If that means a new engine and transmission overhauled within 8 years, well, if that has to be done, it has to be done. This car is just great.

Response From nickwarner

When you run an engine looking for leaks, you aren't able to get it hot enough to get to full pressure. A lot of leaks won't show without pressure. Thats where the pressure test is invaluable. You pressurize it to the limit of what the system was designed to hold and see if anything comes out. Then you fix the leak. A head gasket is still a possibility, and I hate that leak stop was in it. At the end of your repair a full coolant system flush needs to be done to rid that crap from your system.

The reason you are getting different heat coming inside the car is that this engine gets airlocked easily when low on coolant. The system must be bled of air to function properly and to give you heat. Air pockets have formed in your heater core so there isn't enough coolant to transfer heat for you. It is possible that combustion gasses from your cylinders are getting into the cooling system and causing this, which would indicate a bad head or head gasket. A chemical test can be done to this to determine if that is the case.

I like that style of Impala too. But its a ten year old car and getting into its parts-consuming years. I'm glad you're ready to weather that. They're a well built and comfortable car.

Response From MarineGrunt

I had an intake leak on a 3.4 and it was leaking on the driver's side. I also just did an intake on my sister's friends 3.1 and it was leaking on the same side. If the intake is leaking I would think it would be noticeable. Most auto parts stores have a tool loaner program. You put down a deposit for the tool and it's returned to you when you return in. My local Carquest doesn't require a deposit. It's simple pressure testing the system so you ought to go rent a tester. Take your air filter housing off so you can see the intake a little better.

Below is a picture of where the intake is. I didn't have a very good picture of the driver's side and this was the best one I had of the passenger side. There's an intake gasket on the front and one on the back. RTV gasket maker then connects the two. If looking at the engine from the side of the car think of the intake as a "V" You have a gasket on the left part of the "V" and another on the right. On the very bottom of the "V" is where the RTV is. On our minivan it was leaking on the driver's side back part of the "V" and on the 3.1 it was leaking on the driver's side front. A small inspector's mirror can come in handy to try and find out where yours is leaking from. You'll definitely need a mirror if you are looking for a head gasket leak unless you're able to look at it from underneath. If you do go under be sure to engage the parking brake, use jack stands, and chock the rear tires.

In the second picture is what it looks like with the intake off. I outlined the gasket with red lines and the rtv with blue lines. Hopefully it will give you an idea of where to look.

I ended up having to do the head gaskets a few months ago, Like HT said, it will cost about $200 to get the heads pressure tested and planed. I think I paid around $170. If you do end up needing head gaskets you definitely want to get the pressure tested and planed. There could be hairline cracks that aren't visible. They could also be warped and that's where the planning comes into play. If you skip doing this, and there is a small crack, the job will be for nothing and have to be done again so it's well worth the $200. If anything it's worth the peace of mind knowing your heads are good to go.
