I need to know who can I speak with in regards to GM having a recall on the intake manifold gasket for all 2001 Chevrolet Malibu's. I have been told the manager at advanced auto parts that several 2001 Malibu owners come in to purchase coolant, as well as myself, as our gasket is leaking, which causes us to have to refill at least once a month or sooner. I have also checked online and there are several other people having the same problem, to the point that I fell a recall should be done. Some individuals noted that they contacted their car dealer and the gasket was changed to a newer one that they are using in the newer cars. However, I contacted my dealership an was told that there's nothing they can do, as there are no recalls on the vehicle. I need someone to contact me asap regarding this problem. It's not fair to myself, the consumer, to have to pay out of pocket to get this manufacturer default corrected. Too many people are having this same problem for it not be recalled. Please, please contact me at 410/917-7327. Thank you for your immediate attention to my concern.

While driving home from work in 90+ degree heat my car overheated to the point where I had to have it towed in and was told by the mechanics that my coolant had been leaking and causing the car to over heat there blowing the head gasket and causing me to have to pay $1200+ to have another engine put it. I have heard this is a commom with the 2001 Chevrolet Malibu. I don't know what the repair shop done with the old motor, but it was fried.
