View Full Version : Intake Gasket Recall?

Was talking to the Pontiac Regional office today as well as with my local dealer about the vast amount of people having to replace the lower intake manifold gaskets and it seems that there just might eventually be a recall if enough more people call in to complain. This means that if you've already had the repair done, you could be re-imbursed if it becomes a recall.

I have talked to the Pontiac customer service awhile back when I had some problems with my lower intake leaking. The pontiac rep. told me that GM would help pay for the cost of repairing the intake leak, because GM understood that there was no preventive maintenance that you could do to stop the leaks from happening.

AKA GM realizes the gaskets suck.

Now whether that statement is true, and/or you could actually get GM to pay is a whole other story.
