Read your original post, you idiot. You claim the engine blocks are aluminum...they aren't. The gasket failures are not due to dissimiliar metal expansion and contraction. Geez, back to school for you, my boy.

Yo mus be shidden Me, Boy. You are clearly challenged. You have my sympathy, however that being said you are wrong. You are wrong and wrong again on a number of counts but primarily, that the 3.1 Litre V6 engine is iron. Its true that they are out there in a number of variations, its primarily available as a all-aluminium (casted block and heads) since around 1996. Cast aluminium block with steel heads prior to 1996. GM Minivans with 3.1/3.4 had iron blocks until 1998/9, I would guess.
Here is a link to the http://www.gmpartsdepot.com/store/product1.aspx?SID=2&Product_ID 51&Category_ID=3. This is the L-82 crate replacement for the engine in my Buick. Why don't you buy one and have it shipped to me then I will look at the waybill and tell you the weight. That way we will resolve this once and for all. Let me know if you need my addy!
Cheers

You're grasping at straws! The motor that you have linked in your post isn't the same block that comes in an OEM motor as a factory motor. The factory motor blocks are CAST IRON. Like your head.

By the way, here is a link to the OEM motor, notice the block material, CAST IRON!

Why do people do this on the internet. Instead of researching the facts before they open their yap.....they simply make incorrect assertions. I suppose anyone that knows me from my posts, knows that I hate this sort of thing. Unfortunately...it's almost an obsession with me (pointing out untrue things on these newsgroups) that probably irritates a lot of folks.
Anyway......have at her, Lazimodo. Hopefully, no one will make any decisions about automotive type things based on your stupidity!

Thank you for caring. That's so rare, these days.

The UUenet is a like a public highway. Any idiot can drive on it. Your'e here.

I would leave that to you entirely. Your 'expert opinions' sometimes include information that is factually wrong and when challenged you (and your idiot buddy) go off on your droll laments about tangential crap that obscures your own error. You two must work a service-counter together somewhere.
At any rate, the point I originally made about coolant properties is even more valid in an engine that has iron block and aluminum heads, which some 3.1 GM engines do in fact have. The fact remains that the 3.1 is available in a number of block, head and intake configurations. My Buick is Alum/Alum/Alum alloy. Good Day.

My...how smart of you to make this observation. And it is true in the case of head gaskets, but I believe that we were discussing intake gaskets. I realize this is probably all quite over your head.

What year is your Buick, which model....what's the engine code? I've worked on the 60 degree v-6 engines since they first came out and I do not recall any of them having an aluminum block. If you can prove that they do....I'd be happy to admit I'm wrong.
