3.1L need I say more

1997 Chevrolet Lumina 4dr Sedan
My girlfriend bought this car a little over a year ago and it was a very realiable car until about a month ago. The frist thing was the intake gaskets had to be replaced at about 115000 miles. We got the car back and it ran fine for a 3 weeks when a new leak devloped. Took it to a shop and found that the timing chain cover was leaking. So that will be another $350 to fix. If you don't want to sink a lot of money into a car then don't buy one with the 3.1 or the 3.4 they have nothing but problems.
Lots of interior space.
Don't use plastic gaskets or almminum heads on a cast iron block.
