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

To those of you that haven't experienced the acceleration of a 1987 turbo/Intercooled V6 Buick Regal ... I wish you were actually in the Rav-4 as I tried my BEST to follow Steve ... to SEE HIS BUICK FISHTAIL AS THE GARRETT turboCHARGED BEGAN TO BUILD Boost! This Buick even smoked the rear tires when the Garrett built Boost going into 2nd gear. This was recorded at The 2013 Floyd Bennet's Field Muscle Car Show. The video taken prior to this one that's uploading right now ... is of a walk-around of "turbo-STEVE'S" 1987 turbocharged/Intercooled V6 231 c.i.d. Buick Special-T ... or "T-Special," or "turbo-T Regal." UPDATES to follow.





"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.





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

"First 3800 Startup!" Re: The 3100's Last Idle
The 3800's first REAL start up! The swap is done!!!!! I only had one minor issue, and that was a cracked transaxle side cover (The donor car was in a rollover) due to whacking the engine cradle really good! I made a cheesy slide show because my camera effed, but the sound is great quality! If you want a copy of the sound or slideshow, PM me here and I will give you my email address, that way you can email me, so I can reply with the file, just make the subject "3800 Audio" "3800 Video" Thanks and enjoy!!!

Oil Pan Replacement Pontiac Grand Prix GM 3800 Engine Buick Chevrolet
Oil Pan Replacement GM3800 Engine This is how I replaced the rusted out oil pan on my 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix with GM L67 3800 Series II Supercharged engine. The same applies for the non supercharged L36 3800. *** I am not a mechanic and have no training whatsoever. I am not responsible if you follow the explanations in this video and damage parts or incorrectly install a component or cause injury to yourself or somebody else. Major engine components, such as oil pans, should only be changed by a qualified professional and this video is for entertainment purposes only. ***





3800 V6 Rebuild Part II
Some of the things I've learned while rebuilding a race prepped 3800 bottom end addressing machine work, Rod (big ends), crank flex, balancing etc... Machine work done by Thorsen's Racing Engines. Assembled at our garage. Rebuild is a series 3 L26 to L32 conversion, reconditioned rods, ARP rod bolts, fully balanced rotating assembly, Clevite bearings, Hastings piston rings, reconditioned L32 pistons, Intense-Racing stage 3 blower cam, ect.. .





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.
