Impala - Rear Valve Cover Gasket replacement (3800 Series II)
This is how you change the rear valve cover gasket on a Chevy Impala 3.8L (3800 Series II). The method used in this video is WITHOUT taking off the fuel rail and fuel injectors and plenum. This present a problem with a tricky bolt that's next to the fuel injector. You don't necessarily save time doing it this way as opposed to removing the Plenum and fuel rail/injectors but it's less hassle if you're worried about seating the injectors back into place and everything. It will take you some time to get one of the 13mm bolts out that's next to the second injector in the back. Also this method was attempting to get the valve cover off without removing the alternator and tensioner assembly. There is not enough clearance to lift the cover off without removing it. So go ahead and remove the tensioner assembly... 1. Disconnect Neg Terminal from the battery (8mm) 2. Remove the plastic cover by twisting off the oil cap piece 3. Remove the rear "brace bar" (black bar going from left to right) two 13mm on each side 4. Remove the Coolant Recovery tank and set aside (two 10mm nuts) 5. Remove the alternator 6. Remove the bracket holding the alternator to the engine by the fuel injector (10mm I believe) 7. Remove the tensioner assembly (Three 15mm bolts, one of them is hidden) 8. Remove 6 valve cover bolts (10mm) Follow in reverse order to re-assemble, use Permatex Medium blue loctite on the the bolts for the valve cover, you can also change the grommets, but it's not necessary. (They are only $10 for both front and back valve covers)





Impala - Valve Cover Gasket Replacement (Front) 3800 Series II
This is how to replace the Front Valve Cover Gasket on the 2002 Chevy Impala 3.8L (3800 Series II) This is a fairly simple job, to do this you will need the following Tools: 1. Socket & Ratchet set including 10mm, 13mm, and 15mm 2. Valve Cover Gasket Replacement by Felpro ( Part Number: VS50080R) $14.99 at autozone 3. RTV Black by Permatex (Part Number: 82180) (not necessary but nice to have) 4. Torque Wrench that reads Inch/Pounds NOT Foot pounds. Harbor Freight has them for ($10-$15) (Harbor Freight Tools Part #2696) The one at harbor freight is 1/4 drive so if you have a 3/8 inch socket set get a universal adapter set for about $4. 5. Alcohol, acetone, or brake parts cleaner 6. Toothbrush to scrub the valve cover where the gasket will sit This whole job can be done for less than $50 including the cost of the torque wrench. I was quoted about $250 just to change the front valve cover gasket by a local shop.





Engine Coolant Thermostat replacement 3800 V6 engine - Pontiac Bonneville P0128 OBD II Code repair
My check engine light came on in the fall of '09 so I had the code pulled. It was P0128- Coolant Thermostat (Coolant Temperature Below Thermostat Regulating Temperature). I decided to check and replace the thermostat. It was the problem and has been fine since. Overall the job took about 45 min to 1 hour including draining, warming the engine, and refilling the cooling system. It was a pretty easy fix. This problem causes the engine to run too cool because the thermostat is stuck open, causing more coolant to go through the radiator than necessary. Ignoring this problem causes the fuel mixture to be too rich, which will cause poor fuel economy.

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
