General Motors Complaint - Chevrolet Malibu - 3.1 Engine
My son has bought 2000 Chevrolet Malibu with the 3.1 V6 engine. Only had it one week when the intake gasket started leaking. Contacted GM using the 800 number and was told that there was nothing wrong with that engine. I have spent numerous hours talking to many auto mechanics, and was told that it is a common problem with that engine.
The phone technician informed me that GM will not be doing anything about it, and if there is a recall it will need to be issued from the federal government.
