1979 Riviera S Exhaust leak under turbo

Recommended Posts


I recently purchased a 79 Riviera S-Type with a 3.8 turbo. There is a exhaust leak from the exhaust pipe that connects to the bottom of the turbocharger. I went to a muffler shop and they wouldn't touch it. It's extremely hard to reach from the bottom; you can barely see it, less get to it. Today I went to a Buick dealership and they don't want to work on exhaust issues. Any ideas on how I can proceed? Has anyone else had this problem? What will it take to get to this problem and fix it?

Hi Mike,

Noticed you are in Chicago. Winter seems to be quickly subsiding so I will likely be reduced very soon to a 40 hour work week...:) I can fix anything on your Buick or steer you toward another capable tech. Give me a call, my contact info is in the Riview under tech advisors, or stop by the BOP swap meet this Sunday. I`ll have a booth there,
