98 S10 Vortec V6 4.3 Intake Gasket Replacement Part 1 of 5
Well I think I have a bad intake gasket on the drivers side. I had a small
coolant leak coming from the water pump but now I have a pretty bad leak
that is getting on the Exhaust
manifold on the drivers side. Going to take it off and have a look. From
what I have seen online intake gaskets are a pretty common thing on the 4.3
and 5.7 vortec engines. I will try to be as detailed as I can to help
others doing this same job.
