I have a 2005 Chevy Equinox that is leaking coolant. I have taken it to the shop and told that I need a new water pump. I had the water pump change and it was still leaking.

2001 Chevy Malibu have had intake manifold gasket replaced twice since buying car in 2002. I drove it to work fine, coming home( only 5 miles away) steam coming out from the hood.

I don't think it has too much oil. I had the oil changed and put to proper levels. I just drove it around the block and the smoke and smell was extreme. I was going to purchase Red Angel A/C seal which is suppose to seal the O rings and if that didn't work follow up with their sealant for head gasket and block. Either way, I can not afford to replace the head gaskets or anything over 50 bucks. I just need two more good years outta the car. It runs great aside from the smoking exhaust and b
