I have a 2002 Chevy Impala with the 3.8 liter engine with about 32,000
miles on it and wanted to know about several issues:
1. I have not yet had the upper intake manifold redone with the new
screws with the tablets put in the antifreeze per the recall notice.
My question is has this "patch" fixed the problem or caused more
problems? I currently monitor the Dexcool overflow to make sure it
has not gone down significantly. It has not, so I have yet to get
this done at the dealership.
2. Also feel some clicking in steering wheel when I make slow turns in
the car. Is this a steering shaft problem and do they have a temp fix
for this as well? If so what is it.
These are the only 2 concerns I currently have. Are there any other
major issues that I should be concerned about down the road? I am
considering buying a GM extended warranty because some of these fixes
can become quite expensive and I am not sure if any of the fixes are
Thanks In Advance
