Starting the Old Cold Forgotten Buick
Oh boy. At least seven attempts later...it finally started. It ran and
drove pretty good for a free car. The spark plugs came from the white car
(see my other videos). I'll need to get a battery and see if I can fix the
power steering leak.

motor.. Luckily I have a friend who works there so I got to watch... We
chopped off the Magnaflow muffler and this baby was LOOUUUDD

Engine explosion contest- Engine blows up - no oil or coolant- motor explodes minnesota
Saw this at the Early Iron car show at the International Falls Bass
tournament Aug. 28, 2010 in International Falls, Minnesota. In a 50/50
money-raising contest, spectators guessed how long it would take for the
engine to blow-up in this mini-van with NO OIL or coolant with the winning
time getting 1/2 the money raised.
At about 1.5 minutes, the engine started threw out red hot connecting
rods and wrist pins onto the trailer below the van, but it surprisingly
continued to run! I think the final time until complete engine melt-down
was 2mins 33 seconds . Sounded much worst than my phone recorded. You could
literally hear the pistons grinding against cylinder walls before it
seized. All in all, it was all good fun and the money raised from this
"engine explosion contest" went to a good cause.
Lots of people posting below that this old van should have been given to
someone less fortunate, but it was pulled from a junkyard and likely on way
to crusher. Definitely not safe for the road, but thoughts are in right

GM 3800 Series II Supercharged Intake Manifold Leaks
This is an all too common problem with supercharged 3800 series engines.
GM used a plastic lower intake manifold gasket that would break down over
time causing coolant to leak into the oil. If left unfixed, it would get
worse to the point where your engine starts knocking from poor lubrication.
Your oil will look really milky as a result. This engine had only 60k
miles on it when I replaced these gaskets and its a good thing I did. GM
makes a newer revision aluminum gasket set that fixes this problem. You
can get those from a GM dealer, they are the set that has locating pins,
the stock ones did not, but these do fit fine.

**OK ALL YOU MORONS THAT THINK I BLEW UP A PERFECTLY GOOD CAR: THE UNIBODY
