Question type: Maintenance & Repair

car over heats. It appears to have a leak at the valley gasket could it be coming from another place?

1 Answer


You don't have a valley gasket. If you have the 3.8 liter V6 you probably need the upper and lower intake gaskets replaced. Check your oil. Does it have white milky "goop" on the dipstick? If so, that's what is going on. These engines are notorious for intake manifold gasket failure. If you have the 5.7 liter V8 still no valley gasket. Looks like the intake is dry on that engine.
