Dunno, sounds like a botched intake gasket. Oil and antifreeze mixing, burning lots of oil? First guess would be the intake gasket. Bum head gasket install doesn't explain the oil burning on this engine.

I think there were extremely few "four on a tree"; and "three" ryhmes nicely with tree. Now, "four on the floor" sounds good--and that term was pretty popular too.

Also, some old injectors start to acting up, when warm. Due to coil problems.

The steering column is like a tree with branches (control stalks). One of those stalks is the shifter. Hence, 3[speeds]-on-the-tree[steering column].

They didn't start eating intake gaskets until 1996 ish. The 60 degree V6 was born to run in the FWD Citation in 1980. It eventually grew to 3.4 or 3.5 liters to pull minivans around.

wow, we have been blamed for alot of issues but this is a first for putting sodium in the oil! Contact whomever tested your oil, they will have some suggestions about where it came from. And, we only put Franks Red Hot in our filters, no sodium!

The GM 60 degree V6 is a durable and dependable motor. Is it as good as the 90 degree V6's, no. The narrower angle configuration allows it to more effectively fit in smaller engine compartments in a transverse configuration.

Hey fellow BITOGER's.. I was wondering what the usual failures were on the 3.1/2.8 besides the leaky manifold gaskets. My sister's 94 Cavalier threw a rod, it was a 2.8. Her friend drove it on the freewy, 2nd gear 60-65mph. Women..... My 91 Lumina

Is there any issues with your brake drums? I almost never replace drums unless I've broken a fin or something else happened. But, typically they last the life of the car.
