Consumer is concerned with the intake manifold gasket has been replaced on two occasions. When doing intake manifold gasket repair for the second time the technician noticed that the right front (and maybe the left) outer tie rod end was loose and needed to be replaced. The tie rod was first replaced when the vehicle only had 18959 miles on it.

Problems with 2000 Buick Lesabre's intake manifold gasket. The consumer was told that he needed a new intake manifold. GM would not do anything about it because the warranty had expired. There were other consumers with the same problem. The dealer suggested that the problem was due to poor design. There was also an oil leak possibly from the oil pan.

When the consumer started the vehicle it smoked from under the hood. Consumer turned the vehicle off, opened the hood, and noticed that intake manifold cracked and leaked fluid onto fuel injection, which caused the engine to catch on fire.
