    V6 or V8? I have difficulty understanding where the leak is.
    Sure the reservoir is not overfilled? - the level rises a fair bit when the fluid gets hot.

    I'd assume a V6 as the Op was asking whether the Buick V6 is a better manger than the alloytec.

    If it is still leaking then I would say the seal has been damaged or moved upon installation. Did you buy the seal in a kit? If not you may have bought the wrong size seal. They should be a tight fit and take a bit to get the resi back in once the seal has been replaced. Best to put some Vaseline on the seal to get the resi back in. The resi's can crack. If none of the above is your issue, I would looking for cracks.
