Apparently there are documented cases of problems with the coolant used by GM in it's

vehicles. I have a 1998 Pontiac Transport/Montana and very recently the engine temperature

gauge began displaying a higher engine temp. I noticed that my coolant was low (thought

from extra driving) and added the proper coolant to the vehicle. All appeared ok for a week

or so and the same thing happened. Scheduling and finance problems kept me from immediately

taking my vehicle in for service to look at this problem. By the time I got it in apparently (as

told by the mechanics) that probably the head gaskets had failed and also that there maybe

damage to the cylinder lifters. Had I known about this problem with the coolant I would not

now be without it's use. I'm having to donate it to Volunteers of America and take the loss.
