How to change your GM 3800's supercharger oil
Really easy! Takes no more than 30 minutes to do. Everything you need is less than $30 with the right tools. Supercharger oil: 4oz bottles are $10-$12 at your local GM dealership. Need 2 bottles. You only need 6 out of 8oz. Vacuum pump: usually a free rental at some auto parts stores(such as autozone) but some lack the cup. Tool costs around $30 to buy OR! Buy a inexpensive trigger spray bottle. Put the hose end of the trigger in the Supercharger and spray into the bottle. Takes longer, but is cheap!





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





How to find a vac leak on a series I Supercharged 3800 L67
I simple way to find a large vacuum leak on the series I supercharged 3800 (3.8l) found in many GM vehicles. GM put out a TSB about a failed gasket between the Supercharger and lower intake manifold for this engine. The conditions seen are a check engine light P0141 and/or P0171 for a low signal on the oxygen sensor and a lean condition. It usually causes the engine to run bad and idle high. Hope this helps!

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.





"How To" GM 3800 V6 (3.8L) Starter replacement
BE SURE TO DISCONNECT BATTERY SO YOU DO NOT BECOME BBQ! Also, it is always a good idea to replace the starter solenoid when you replace a starter. I have had the old solenoid catch fire on me when replacing a starter in an old ford truck before! Please let me know if you have any questions... this should apply to most if not all Starters for 3.8L's. This car is a 1999 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight.

New project: 1997 Buick Riviera Supercharged
PIcked this one up off Craigslist for $400 plus $50 to deliver it. Car runs and drives but has what sounds like rod knock. I still need to to some diagnostic work, but that's what it sounds like to me, and the guy I bought it from was a mechanic and thinks the same. The car is fully loaded with what looks to be every option offered right down the traction control and engine block heater. The car has just under 100k on it and it in excellent shape in and out. The car has been sitting for a year or so and looks it, but it will get washed when it gets warmer.
