Anyone here have any dealings with a GM car or van with 3.4 engine? If so will you tell me the good and/or bad about them. Jenny and i have always had a Dodge and 2 years ago i got a chev truck and have been very pleased with it and jenny kept her dodge van but its has started giving a lot of problems lately so she tryed out a Pontic van last week and seem to love it but i have never heard of a 3.4 before. Thanking you in advance, Oh yes its used but has only 25000 miles on it. We have friends that buys off lease cars,trucks and vans and they sell to us like they do the dealers, Of coarse i always check the kelly blue book to make sure. James

Just doing a little Googling I found some decent info.

The 3.4 liter GM motor was a pretty dependable motor. Although the exhaust system seems to be rather expensive to replace. A lot of people complained about that. But overall the 3.4 seems to be dependable.

It was replaced by the 3.8 liter motor.

GM used this motor in the Chevy Lumina in the mid to late 90's and is in the 2000's Chevy Impala too. That has to be a good sign that the motor has been able to work in many GM models and has survived a couple of decades.

Here is the Kelley Blue Book web site.
