I'm sure there is more than one way to do this but this is the way that I
was taught and it seems to work as intended. The idea is to make sure the
engine is fully lubricated before you start it up for the first time as we
know all too well what happens to an engine without oil, in fact I forgot
to show me filling up the oil filter with oil before I installed it sorry.
Feel free to add your tips and tricks in the comments.

Replacing Chevrolet Lower Intake Manifold Gasket
New intake gaskets on a 1997 Malibu LS 3100 motor. This is a very common
issue with these cars. In this video I take you though the whole process
not in a professional shop but in a drive way so you can get a realistic
look at whether or not this fix is for you.
Make sure you get the steel replacement gaskets as that will solve any
future leaking issues.
