3800 Series 2 taken partially apart

Just a short video of my engine partially taken apart. I had to change the intake gasket. This was actually my first time tackling a job like this and it was actually really easy. So if you have a 3800 engine and need the lower gasket replaced do it yourself and don't pay the dealer. I was a total noob at it and pulled it off just fine =) While it was apart I went ahead and installed an Intercooler. I figure since its already apart an Intercooler would be easy to put in at this point =)

Flipping Dogbone Engine Mounts the Easy Way on GM 3800 Series II
Since I could not find another video on how to do this, I figured it out for myself and made a how-to video to help others. This will work on the supercharged 3.8 liter as well. It's an overall easy job, but it's so much easier and straightforward when you've seen somebody else do it first. All you need is a 15mm deep well socket and a 15mm wrench. You could just use 2 15mm wrenches, but it will take longer. In the end you will get more instant torque to the wheels when accelerating. This should work on any GM 3.8 L / 3800 Series I II III (One, Two, or Three) 1, 2, or 3. L36, L26, L67, L32 (Assuming it has the torque strut motor mounts) Park avenues, regals, etc. may not have them. Instead there is a mount on the front of the engine that does the same job. Common vehicles with the 3800: Pontiac: Grand Prix, Bonneville, Firebird Chevy/Chevrolet: Impala, Monte Carlo, Camaro Buick: Regal, LeSabre, Park Ave, Century, Riviera, Reatta Oldsmobile: Silhouette

GM 3.8 Intake Manifold replacement. Removal the fast way WITH NOTES
this is the "Flat Rate " way to do a 3.8 liter upper and lower intake manifold set. as you see it is not necessary to take off he serp belt, alternator or tensioner assembly to remove the lower manifold. I recomend having someone help when it is time to reinstall the manifold because it can be tricky to lien up the coolant elbow and not mess up the lower gaskets when reinstalling. Note that it is recomended to disconnect the negative battery cable when doing any major repairs. This video is just to show some guys that said that a lower manifold cant be pulled in way less than 20 minutes, I know that I went over that , but I had some stuborn injectors and Im a little out of practice. If you are going to do this yourself and you are not a professional I recomend that you follow the procedure in a service manual





How to change a thermostat on a GM 3800, the fastest way
This is the way I like to change the thermostats on the 3.8 liter engines. The main difference is how I manage getting the cooling system "drained" to swap it out. It saves quite a bit of time. This applies to any GM 3.8 L / 3800 Series I II III (One, Two, or Three) 1, 2, or 3. L36, L26, L67, L32 Common vehicles with the 3800: Pontiac: Grand Prix, Bonneville, Firebird Chevy/Chevrolet: Impala, Monte Carlo, Camaro Buick: Regal, LeSabre, Park Ave, Century, Riviera, Reatta Oldsmobile: Silhouette

1999 Bonneville SLE with L26 manifold
L26 UIM swapped onto an L36. A friend and I spent some quality engine modding time. We swapped out the lower intake manifold for a ported and polished one, and the upper intake manifold is now the aluminum version from the Series 3 3800. There is a custom throttle body adapter plate with a Series 2 supercharged 3800 throttle body. Rice pipe to conical K&N air filter make up the rest of the air intake. Everything else is stock.

2000 Grand Prix GT 3800 Series 2 Head Gasket Problem.
Ok update: The problem was a cracked lower intake manifold. Surprisingly the upper intake was fine. The EGR passage wasnt in bad shape at all. It was still sealed. But the lower intake was sucking oil and water in the wrong places.





GM 3800 Series II Leak
Removed upper intake manifold and was surprised to see...update: Lower intake manifold had previously been replaced with aluminum gasket. This was found with 102,000 miles on engine :(. Upper intake plenum was damaged around EGR.





GM 3800 Series II Supercharged Intake Manifold Leaks
This is an all too common problem with supercharged 3800 series engines. GM used a plastic lower intake manifold gasket that would break down over time causing coolant to leak into the oil. If left unfixed, it would get worse to the point where your engine starts knocking from poor lubrication. Your oil will look really milky as a result. This engine had only 60k miles on it when I replaced these gaskets and its a good thing I did. GM makes a newer revision aluminum gasket set that fixes this problem. You can get those from a GM dealer, they are the set that has locating pins, the stock ones did not, but these do fit fine.
