Engine intake anti-freeze leak is a known problem for 1997 Chevy trucks and should be a factory paid for fix. But no they don't want to do that, we as consumers have paid as much as $600 to $700 to have GM dealers to do this. Witch I think is wrong!!!!!!!!!

My major complaint is that of a leaking intake manifold. (5.7L V8). I've noticed many complaints of this problem and it needs to be a recall!
