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 =)

3800 V6 Upper Intake Swap Part 2-3

Chevy 3.8 coolant leak
Yes, many of the 3.8 engines have leaking intake gaskets. But sometimes it's not the intake gasket but the coolant bypass tubes instead. It's very easy to overlook this. Here's what to look for and how to do it.





Removing the engine on my 97 Riviera
Pulling the knocking 3800 supercharged out of my Riviera to make way for the replacement engine. Came out relatively easy thanks to the engine wiring for the most part is one harness that unplugs at the firewall. Everything is in that harness except the starter, alternator and speed sensor wiring. The AC compressor and power steering pump unbolt and can be left in the car so you don't have to drain the fluid/refrigerant. The biggest pain was getting the axis motor mount off, the bolts were pretty rusty. The ironic part is those bolts have to be removed to change the belts, which are so cracked and chipped I wouldn't doubt they are original. The old engine will either be used for parts, or I may rebuild it at some point.

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.

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

Fix It Right! - Intake Manifold Gasket Replacement
Fix It Right! - Intake Manifold Gasket Replacement (S1E4) Demonstrated on a 2004 Buick Century 3.1L V6 FWD. In this video, we demonstrate how to perform an intake manifold gasket replacement on a front-wheel-drive 3.1L V6 engine, in this case in a 2004 Buick Century. This is a common point of failure on General Motors' 3.1L, 3.4L, and 3.8L V6 engines, which are used in a large number of passenger cars across most of GM's model lines. *** DIY POSSIBLE, BUT TOUGH *** This repair task should only be attempted by advanced DIYers.

Pontiac Bonneville 3800 Tune Port Injection Series I (Plastic intake leak solution).
In this video we explain how and why the plastic plenum on a engine will leak. this video discuss the intake plenum on a 3800 3.8L engine from general Motors. Replacing the plastic plenum (intake) manifold (Buick 3.8) with a metal (OEM) one from GM. The metal plenum can be found on most Oldsmobile with the 3800 TPI engine.The plastic intake plenum are more likely to leak air or coolant into the induction system. Coolant leaking into the cylinder will cause the engine to Hydro lock (damage). when the plastic intake leak air. it will cause a Lean condition. A leaky intake manifold will also affect the O2 (oxygen) sensor performance by contaminating the sensor. An intake leak will display many codes. replacing the sensor recommend by the scan tool will not fix the condition if the plenum continue to leaks. http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i232/stevexperformance/Other%20Toys/riv6. jpg PLEASE - RATE -COMMENT AND SUBSCRIBE

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.
