Monte Carlo 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 53,000 miles
I own a 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo 53,000 miles on it with intermediate shaft problems and intake manifold gasket problems. Both are apparently common on this make and model. Chevrolet should make these repairs. The steering can be affected, which is a hazard and the gasket could cause engine freeze up while driving, also a hazard.

Vehicle would overheat and loses coolant while driving. The vehicle was taken to a repair shop, and mechanic determined that the intake manifold gasket needed to be replaced. Dealer was notified and informed consumer that problem was not covered under a recall.

Lower coolant light come on because of poor sealant of the lower intake manifold. This resulted in anti freeze leaking.
