car   Coolant Leaking problem 2
Failure Date: 11/24/2006

There is a huge amount of oil in the coolant in my 2001 chevy Impala. Knowing just a little about internal combustion engines probably an intake gasket leaking. For a car which has been very well maintained with under 80,000 miles on the odometer this was alarming. High engine temp and a sludge in my motor are the obvious consequences. Who knows what the long term affects will be. The car is now at the mechanics and already I am looking at 700 to 1,000 dollars which I do not have to repair.
