Originally posted by dwendt44: The 3.4 L V-6 is one of the GM engines with a tendency to leak at the intake seals. I'm not sure if GM has finally fixed the problem yet. They are on the third 'revision' of that gasket. Time will tell. If you trade every three years, either should be a reliable drive.
