2004 Pontiac Grand Prix Head Gasket Leak?? Or intake manifold leak??

I was hoping someone could help me identify this problem i have. Antifreeze leaks to the top of the engine but the oil looks fine. Can anyone give me advice on this video?? It has over 250000 miles on it but has not lost any power since the day i bought it new.

Problem was not a head gasket. It was the lower intake gasket. But while the engine is tore apart figured I'd go ahead and rebuild the upper end.

2000 Grand Prix GT 3800 Series 2 Head Gasket Problem.
Ok update: The problem was a cracked lower intake manifold. Surprisingly the upper intake was fine. The EGR passage wasnt in bad shape at all. It was still sealed. But the lower intake was sucking oil and water in the wrong places.

GM 3800 Series II Supercharged Intake Manifold Leaks
This is an all too common problem with supercharged 3800 series engines. GM used a plastic lower intake manifold gasket that would break down over time causing coolant to leak into the oil. If left unfixed, it would get worse to the point where your engine starts knocking from poor lubrication. Your oil will look really milky as a result. This engine had only 60k miles on it when I replaced these gaskets and its a good thing I did. GM makes a newer revision aluminum gasket set that fixes this problem. You can get those from a GM dealer, they are the set that has locating pins, the stock ones did not, but these do fit fine.

How to Test Head Gasket
** Please see my other videos on this topic* Thx! This video is intended for those who would like to know how to confirm a damaged head gasket on a vehicle prior to making the decision to invest a lot of money for repair. My apologies for the camera focus- next video I will pay closer attention, but the information needed is viewable. Further research should be done on the risks of overheating to the engine block and such. This video is meant to simply show a 'how to' on the test method I used quite often when professionally working on vehicles, the results of which are based on chemistry and industry-standards of the time (1990's). I hope you find this video useful. RI.





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.

GM 3.8 Intake Manifold replacement. Removal the fast way WITH NOTES
this is the "Flat Rate " way to do a 3.8 liter upper and lower intake manifold set. as you see it is not necessary to take off he serp belt, alternator or tensioner assembly to remove the lower manifold. I recomend having someone help when it is time to reinstall the manifold because it can be tricky to lien up the coolant elbow and not mess up the lower gaskets when reinstalling. Note that it is recomended to disconnect the negative battery cable when doing any major repairs. This video is just to show some guys that said that a lower manifold cant be pulled in way less than 20 minutes, I know that I went over that , but I had some stuborn injectors and Im a little out of practice. If you are going to do this yourself and you are not a professional I recomend that you follow the procedure in a service manual
