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 =)

HOW TO CHANGE THE SUPERCHARGER OIL ON A GM 3800 SERIES II V6
just a quick instructional video of how to properly change the Supercharger oil on your 3800... some people say just to re-top off your Supercharger, but many owners as well as a good number of master mechanics ive talked to about it that worked on these cars, they say to full out replace it by draining it and putting new oil in, simply because if you know anything about oil youd know that it breaks down over time especially because of heat and friction. new oil handles it better and keeps it properly lubricated and cooler temperature. old oil will be dirty, maybe burned, and possibly ineffective if broken down enough over time. which method you trust is up to you, im not saying either method is right or wrong, this one just makes more sense to me, therefore thats the one i do on my car so we made the instructional video for this, if you choose simply to top off your oil, do all the same steps just dont empty the old oil first.

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.

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.

HELP! Engine Knocking Noise 3800 Series II
Can anyone confirm this noise? Happened after a 2 hour highway trip. Oil and Filter change the day before, and Lower Intake Manifold Gasket replaced about a week prior. It did at one point seize the engine, however a couple of days later it turned over with plugs removed, and fired up fine right after they were placed back in. Still making this same noise, as it did before it locked up. 240,000 KM on the car and engine.

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
