SOURCE: Can anyone tell me where the fusebox is for the 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue.

fastboyz is correct. There are two fuse panels. One in the engine area near the battery as he describes. The other one is on the passenger side at the end of the dash board. You have to open the passenger door. If you look at the dash board you will see a panel box cover built-in to the dash. The cover fits the contour shape of the dash. Pull on the cover and that will expose the fuses.

SOURCE: Where are the spark plugs on my 2000 Oldsmobile

2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue V6-214 3.5L VIN H SFI

Spark Plug: Service and Repair
REMOVAL PROCEDURE
TOOLS REQUIRED
J 43094 Spark Plug Boot Puller
1. Turn OFF the ignition switch.
2. Remove the ignition coil assembly.
3. Use the J 43094 in order to remove the spark plug boots from the spark plugs.
NOTE: Allow the engine to cool before removing the spark plugs. Attempting to remove the spark plugs from a hot engine may cause the plug
threads to seize causing damage to cylinder head threads.
NOTE: Clean the spark plug recess area before removing the spark plug. Failure to do so could result in engine damage because of dirt or
foreign material entering the cylinder head, or by the contamination of the cylinder head threads. The contaminated threads may prevent the
proper seating of the new plug. Use a thread chaser to clean the threads of any contamination.
4. Remove the spark plugs from the engine.
INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
NOTE: Use only the spark plugs specified for use in the vehicle. Do not install spark plugs that are either hotter or colder than those specified for the
vehicle. Installing spark plugs of another type can severely damage the engine.
NOTE: Check the gap of all new and reconditioned spark plugs before installation. The pre-set gaps may have changed during handling. Use a round
feeler gage to ensure an accurate check. Installing the spark plugs with the wrong gap can cause poor engine performance and may even damage the
engine.
1. Measure the spark plug gap on the spark plugs to be installed. Compare the measurement to the gap specifications. Refer to Spark Plug Usage.
Correct as necessary.
NOTE: Be sure that the spark plug threads smoothly into the cylinder head and the spark plug is fully seated. Use a thread chaser, if necessary,
to clean threads in the cylinder head. Cross-threading or failing to fully seat the spark plug can cause overheating of the plug, exhaust blow-by, or
thread damage.
NOTE: Refer to Fastener Notice in Service Precautions.
2. Install the spark plugs to the engine.
Tighten
Tighten the spark plug to 20 N.m (15 lb ft).
3. Install the spark plug boots to the ignition coil assembly.

SOURCE: 2000 Intrigue Oldsmobile over heating

I have a 2000 Intrigue that had the same overheating problem only when it gets below 0 degrees. I read many forums on this matter and it only got me more confused. It had thumping in the heater hose lines when it got hot. So here is what I did to cure the problem....I first installed a new thermostat that I purchased from NAPA Auto-$43. I noticed that it has a small one way valve built into the housing. I took a 1/8 inch drill bit and drilled down through the hole to make it a 2 way hole so coolant could get through (and air could escape when bleeding the system). I then took off the purge tank and flushed it out with hot water to get all of the crud out of it. When I reinstalled all of the hoses and thermostat, I coated the gasket seal and inside the hoses with high temp RTV. I also took off those wierd squeeze clamps and used the screw type hose clamps. I suspected that it was drawing air into the system when it cooled down and with the RTV and new clamps, that problem was eliminated! I reinstalled the surge tank and filled with 50/50 mixture of Dex Cool, then started the engine. I opened the bleeder valve on the top right corner of the radiator and left it open until a good steady stream of antifreeze came out. I kept putting antifreeze into the surge tank until it came up to the full cold mark. Then I left the pressure cap off and drove the car for about 10 miles at normal speed. During this time I had the heater running on high. When I stopped the car I added enough antifreeze to bring the surge tank level to full hot and put the pressure cap on. I then drove it for another 10 miles or so and checked the level, right on the full hot line. By the way, I also put on a new pressure cap. For $7 it was worth the money. I drove the car around for about another hour and the temp gauge only got up to a little over 1/4! Oh, I also put a new serpentine belt, just because the old one had 60,000 miles on it. So for $43 (new thermostat), $7 (new pressure cap), $12 (more Dex Cool), $24 (new serpentine belt), and $20 (new clamps, High Heat RTV, etc) the problem is fixed!! The reason I drilled out the hole in the thermostat housing was for air to escape when bleeding the system. This was the one and only time I have had problems with overheating, just in real cold temps, and I hope it never comes back! So for a little over $100 (MUCH less than a garage would charge!), you can do the same thing with a few tools.

SOURCE: Valve cover is leaking oil

will try to help.if it's only the valve cover leaking,i'm guessing they sold you the rubber one that says ne rtv sealant needed. take your back off, try not to break the rubber seal when removing!clean the top of head where gasket goes. clean the valve cover really good!clean the grooves out that the gasket slides into. buy some blue trv glue, apply a thin coat to top of head, let it setup while you apply another thin coat to valve cover, let set 10mins. apply gasket to valve cover making sure to push the gasket into the grooves on valve cover. don't worry about neatness. let the valve cover set on a hard surface with the gasket against the hard flat surface[such as a garage floor,or clean driveway] after10 more minutes install the valve cover,make sure and take your time. place valve cover onto motor,than hand start each bolt to insure thay are going into the prope bolt holes. after you have each bolt hand started, start at center of valve cover snugging the bolts down to motor. do not crank down or apply excessive force when tightening those bolts. you should see some of that blue rtv glue coming out around the valve cover when applying torque to the valve cover bolts. only secure them snug at first. let car set for 15mins. start car and look for leaks around the cover, do not over tighten those bolts but you may need to look for a leak, go to bolt closest to leak and turn it 1/4 at a time until leak stops. but if you do this step by step, you'll not have a leak issue. you may have pinched the gasket when you replaced it. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

The valve cover gasket isn't hard to change. Oil on the plugs indicates a more serious problem. Smoke from the exhaust would be from rings, rich mixture, worn valve guides. It may be that the engine is overfull (that would show on the stick). Oil loss from a leaking gasket would smoke under the hood and leave oil on the engine and the ground.

How do I replace valve cover gaskets on an Oldsmobile Intrigue?


Remove the ignition coils or plug wires if they are located on/in the cover. Unbolt the cover and remove. Discard old rubber gasket and clean gasket channel of any oil or sludge formation. Install new gasket in channel securely and reinstall cover making sure not to dislodge gasket and reinstall bolts. The rear cover may require the removal of the upper intake manifold for access to the cover depending on which engine the car is equipped with. May not be a job for someone without engine experience

Rear valve cover


The 2 motor mounts that go to the radiator support hold the
engine verticle,if you pull the bolts that hold the mounts to the
engine you will be able to "roll" the engine foreward,giving you
the room to get at the rear.

Oil leak in 1998 olds intrigue does not appear to be the rocker arm cover gaskets. Any advice on how to pinpoint the leak ?


pull the valve cover gaskets, clean them and replace them, there is no cheater way to do this. To pin point leak you'l need to look closely at the covers if oil is running down the sides towards front or back of motor (theres 2 covers, one front, one rear) if it is, you may be able to tighten bolts, but be careful not to strip them. If they are tight, youl need to change the cover gaskets

Where is pc valve located on 2000 oldsmobile intrigue


  • The PCV valve can be located in several places. The most common location is in a rubber grommet in the valve cover. It can be installed in the middle of the hose connections, as well as installed directly in the intake manifold.
