Engine coolant leaks are one of the biggest problems and can cause one of the biggest repairs if not fixed right away.

The water pump is what circulates the coolant throughout the engine, radiator and heater core. The thermostat will open once it meets manufactures specified temperature which is normally around 180-195.

If there is a leak this is hard for the engine to operate under conditions with air replacing coolant and will cause over heating. Which could lead to major problems like cracked block or heads, blowing head or intake gaskets or even total engine failure.


General Motors has one of the biggest problem with there intake gaskets being designed to thin, and fail around 60,000-90,000 miles. This happens to all 3.1L, 3.3L, 3.4L, 3.5L, 3.6L 3.8L, 3.9L cars and 4.3L,4.8L, 5.3L, 5.7L, 6.0L, 6.2L truck and SUV's

These gaskets allow engine coolant to mix with engine oil and can make a residue throughout the coolant system and cause circulation problem, over heating and could also hydro lock the engine.

Oil leaks can happen for several reasons. Valve cover gaskets and oil pan gasket are mostly rubber or silicone and become old or dry rotted. So engine oils have conditioners that help prevent these types of problems but using this oil can also make leaks worse if leaks have already started. Use different kinds of oil only matters depending on what condition the engine current state is.
