    2006 grand prix gt timing cover coolant leak.

    Vasoline? Do I really need to pack the gears to get oil pressure? If so what am I to pack full? Just the gears, or the all the oil ports on the timing cover? I figure too much vasoline might not be a good thing.

    2006 grand prix gt timing cover coolant leak.

    Is it necessary to remove the oil pan?
  3. Coolant leaking out of the radiator side of the timing cover. Pour water in and it runs right back out. Looking at changing the gaskets to the cover but cant find enough info on removal. The book I have dosent really cover it too well. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    One more quick question. What are you doing to cool your tranny? External cooler only or keep it thtough the radiator? I noticed as engine temps go up to does the trannys.

    Ok looking into a radiator. Any aftermarket ones i should avoid? Do i need one for the supercharged motor?I ask due to pricing, anywhere from 70ish up a few hundred. I know you get what you pay for.

    No stop leak for me. No such thing as a mechanic in a can.

    Didn't know about the water. Is filtered water ok or should it be distilled?

    I'll look into the radiator. Would could explain the heating up. But I noticed the intake gasket should be replaced. Looks like a little leak.

    I flushed it myself. I warmed up the car not fully but warm then opened the drain. When completely drained and cooled i refilled it with plain water and drained it. Pulled the upper hose and flushed the radiator till water came out clean. With no thermostat i filled the block till it ran clean as well.

    Oil is clean. No milk shake. It thas been going on a few months. We got the car from my wifes aunt and uncle. They never drove it much. Her uncles solution was to take out the thermostat.

    Both fans kick on. They work with ac on or off. Have not checked the intake. And I know it still has the plastic elbows but they dont seem to be leaking.

    I have searched and found some helpful info but i need help. 2006 grand prix gt 3.8 supercharged overheating never the the warning level but damn close. I have changed the belts, water pump, the thermostat, I flushed the radiator and refilled it purged the air. Car climbs up past the middle line at an idle but stays steady while driving..... on the flat ground and with my foot out of it. Going up a hill of and the temps rise. Have not gone up a big enough hill to see if it continues to rise. But once it flattens out or I start down hill the temp levels out again. Not much coolant loss maybe a cup full in a week. Head gaskets? With a baby on the way im trying to figure this out asap.
