What should I do if the intake gasket is leaking in a Saturn?


Answer by  mocha (48)

If you are not comfortable repairing vehicles on your own, you should take it to the dealership or a repair shop. A leaking intake gasket can cause the vehicle to run poorly, increasing emissions, and reducing gas mileage. If you are comfortable with auto repair, the gasket can be replaced by following the manufacturer's recommendation.

If the intake gasket is leaking you should replace it immediately before it causes any more problems. This will cause the car to run lean which means to much air compared to fuel. It will cause a rough idle and can eventually lead to in the worst case ruining your motor. Replace it.

This is a tricky question. Start by checking the obvious and perhaps even consult your dealership or local automotive shop/expert.

If the old gasket leaks then you should install new one. Make sure to clean all the old gasket first and keep debris out of the intake.

The best thing to do is to get a new gasket and install it. It can be tricky but if you have the owners manual it is not bad.

If the gasket has a leak the best thing to do is pull off the manifold and replace the gasket. Unless your are mechanically inclined your best bet is to have a shop do the job for you. However it can be done yourself if you have the resources.

The best thing that you can do is replace it. This is a part that needs immediate attention because this will lead to a major loss of oil and can cause your engine to overheat or shut down completely. Compared to what could happen, this is an inexpensive fix to do.


Answer by  Amber40 (24961)

If your engines intake gasket is leaking the proper way to fix it is to remove the intake and install a new gasket. Be sure to remove all the old gasket and clean the surface before installing the new one. You could possibly repair it temporarily with some sealant around the leak but eventually it would fail.
