is there a silent recall or gm assistance or anything on the 99 aleros that
got their engine ruined because of the bad intake manifold gasket?
it happened to us, and now its happened to a friend ..
the temp gauge shows slightly above normal temp, dealer, nothing wrong,
again, dealer, nothing wrong...
finally the engine went kaboom um
no legal recourse? does gm keep track of when you go to the dealership and
have print outs available??!
From what I have read on the internet GM is thumbing their nose at their

stories. The dealer wanted to change mine on a 99 Venture even though it
wasn't leaking so they know they have a problem but won't pay for it. I have
always been a GM customer but decided to get rid of the Venture and bought a
There seems to be no special policy for that problem, which is what would
allow GM/dealers to pay for such a problem which is out of warranty. The
best hope (if any) would be to get them to pay for at least part of the

while we're ont he topic of the dealer cheating you, um, ...
if your blower motor only works on setting 5/high, and not the other ones,
it's probably the resistor, right?
well, my aunt has a 97 gp, and she had to get hre blower motor replaced
twice, and they had to remove the whole dsah on my mom's alero to do it...
does it require replacing the blower motor or just the resistor? why would
they replace a perfectly goood motor? or is it just that hard to get to?!
