Having problems with your 2001 Pontiac Firebird ?
01 pontiac firebird losing coolant fast and white goo on oil cap
\015 So i had noticed about 2 weeks ago that my firebird was loosing coolant fast and after turning off my engine for a little bit you could hear a loud noise (sounded almost like a fan) and a bubbling, took it to dealer and he said just keep adding coolant and water if needed and if it keeps going bring it back...then a week ago i took my car to get the oil changed and the guy said that they could not do it because they suspect water in the engine...he then showed me the oil cap and inside and there was a white goo all over, back to the dealer i went, he basically whiped away the goo and said that sometimes its just condensation no big deal and if it happened again to bring it backwell low and behold i looked today, AND ITS BACK! and my low oil light came on so i had to add more oil...what could possibly be wrong? what should i ask the dealer to check? and worst case scenario, how much will this probably cost me? i really dont want to get "took" by the dealer mechanics if they dont know what there doing or want to overcharge me...anyhelp would be great :D\015
Head gasket, or intake manifold gasket is letting coolant leak by, into the engine.
