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.

How to Break In A New or Rebuilt Engine - EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ 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.

Fix It Right! - Intake Manifold Gasket Replacement
Fix It Right! - Intake Manifold Gasket Replacement (S1E4) Demonstrated on a 2004 Buick Century 3.1L V6 FWD. In this video, we demonstrate how to perform an intake manifold gasket replacement on a front-wheel-drive 3.1L V6 engine, in this case in a 2004 Buick Century. This is a common point of failure on General Motors' 3.1L, 3.4L, and 3.8L V6 engines, which are used in a large number of passenger cars across most of GM's model lines. *** DIY POSSIBLE, BUT TOUGH *** This repair task should only be attempted by advanced DIYers. IMPORTANT NOTE: Please read the disclaimer text at the start of the video before attempting anything shown therein. Take your time, take care, and be safe! About the "Fix It Right!" video series: "Fix It Right!" is a series of how-to videos intended to give do-it-yourselfers basic instructions on proper vehicle repair and maintenance. All of our videos show real repairs being performed on real vehicles by real technicians in a real auto shop. (Repairs are filmed and shown with the permission of the vehicles' owners.) Although there may be more than one way to perform any particular repair (and in many cases there are lots of ways!) we try to focus on the methods that will be safest and most expedient for DIYers with limited access to tooling and equipment. We will also occasionally be showing repair processes that are too complex or dangerous for DIY, or require specialized tooling, expertise, equipment, and/or certifications. Those episodes will highlight the importance of hiring a professional auto technician for tasks that are not DIY-friendly, and demonstrate why such tasks are best left to professionals.

blowing a 3.1 mpfi v6 engine
customer brought in a Z24 just like mine! 3.1 5 speed... 3.1 was blowen, sounds like a wrist pin let go. for the same price of replacing the old 3.1 with another old 3.1, he decided to bring it to me, the expert! and have a 3400 SFI installed!





2001 Chevy Malibu 3.1L rod knock
Vehicle had intake manifold gasket replaced, throttle body and IAC cleaned. It then started stall while test driving, followed by starting to make this noise. The day after this video was made, I moved the car into my driveway and it stopped running for good, refusing to turn over. Once I opened it up, found one of the pistons had disintegrated and a chunk of it got wedged in the crank. I also found the head of a valve. My best guess right now is that a valve seat dropped into the cylinder and started to rattle around until it broke the valve, which then busted up the piston. The engine in the car has since been replaced and now runs like a champ.





Part 2 GM 3400 How to Replace a Bad Blown Head Gasket Reassembly Overheats No Vent Heat 3.4 Liter
Part 2 Reassembly on a head gasket change for a GM 3400. Basically the same as a 3.1 Engine. Here are a few torque ratings that I used while I was putting it back together. Head bolts 65 foot pounds, torque to 40 in criss cross pattern, then 50, 55, 60 then finally 65 Rocker arm bolts 40 foot pounds then up to 50. The rest were just hand tightened down good. Got questions? Stuck on one certain area? Give me a shout out! I'll help answer your questions best I can. : ) Replaced the head gaskets on this 3400 because they were bad. Engine would overheat.

how to bleed coolant system 3.1/3.4 liter
this is video on how to bleed the coolant system on a general motors 3.1 liter and 3.4 liter v6 commonly used . if you do not bleed the coolant system after doing lower intake gaskets,water pump,coolant hose or many other things that expose the coolant system to air will cause a overheat condition.





Spinning over a V6 GM engine
The piston sequencing is shown for a 3.4 liter GM V6 engine. Note, it turns out that I numbered the cylinders wrong, what I call #1 is actually #2, and what I labelled as #2 is actually #1. So the Actual firing order as a regular V6 engine, is 1,2,3,4,5,6, I know, weird, but that is they way they made them. I am more used to V8 engines, so that is why I numbered the cylinders the way I did. Either way though, it shows that the crankshaft will not work as it is for the Junkyard Deltic project. Time to cut and weld the crank!!!!!!!!
