What engines can I put in the vehicle? Does it have to be the same as the original? Thanks!
Will a '98 or '99 engine be OK? I don't really want the same engine, b/c the engine in my vehicle was definately one of those with the DexCool probs. I just replaced the intake manifold gasket for the third time, when the engine seized a coupld of weeks later. I tried to file a claim with GM, but they will not acknowledge the problem, and said it was my fault. The dealershipe reported sludge in the oil pan (I presume from the DexCool leak), but they maintain that I wasn't changing the oil enough!
