So, why are you getting all the other gaskets replaced?My car is currently in the shop for blown
Rear main seal
Oil pan gasket
I was also loosing coolant and it was leaking from the head gasket and mixing into the oil.
My car has 94k miles and is under powertrain warranty thank god
When your water pump goes out it has a seap hole that purposely leaks coolant to let you know your water pump is shot.
Sorry to dredge up an old thread, but what gasket are you referring to? I seem to have a similar leak on my 06 Monte Carlo (the water pump area is wet, and the ac compressor is coated in coolant).I found out that is the gasket by the water pump and that is such a common thing in the cars that the local chevrolet dealership keep them in stock, because they must get a lot of cars with this problem. The good news, n.o anitfreeze in oil
They called it a crossover gasket. The part itself was cheap, the labor was not. If you can find someone else to do it besides a dealership, I would recommend you take it to them.Sorry to dredge up an old thread, but what gasket are you referring to?

My '06 3.5L started smelling like antifreeze last year... replaced the thermostat, replaced waterpump but still the problem persists. Now the "stop engine" warning light comes on so we self diagnosed it as a blown head gasket. Dealership quoted over $2,000+ in repairs which is not realistic for me. Has anyone considered or has done the following: buy a used engine and do an engine swap? I would imagine it would be cheaper than tearing my engine apart and then trying to put it all back together.The part itself was cheap, the labor was not.
