Is the 3800 Series II V6 THAT GOOD of an engine?? Why?
I own a 2000 Impala LS with the 3.8L. It has 236,000 miles on it, not a single
problem. Am I just running on luck or is this engine really just that good? I've
heard great things about them, and I've heard of some reaching 500,000
miles. I have no engine lights on, it runs very smooth, good consistent idle,
great response to throttle, and it gets great gas mileage. It still has all of its
power from 17 years ago, it acts that way anyways. What's your opinion? Is
it a good engine lineup, or is it just luck?
3.8 engines have a pretty good reputation. Bad intake manifolds are a known issue.
Yeah I have experience with that. I have replace my upper intake manifold because the other one exploded. At least it got me more familiar with my car though!
