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.





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 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

Chevy Blazer Coolant Leak (Intake Manifold)
I have localized a coolant leak on my 2003 Chevy Blazer to the gasket of the intake manifold (I hope that's the only leak..) Turns out that this is common among this particular engine both in the v6 & v8 sizes. The company's "mandatory" coolant "DexCool" apparently is caustic to the gaskets and other parts of the cooling system. As a result a class action lawsuit was filed against Chevrolet (I do not know the results). The coolant system pressure test kit was rented from O'Reilly Auto Parts. It required a $152 refundable deposit, but there are no time constraints. I found this site, and it was very helpful. The guy has been generous to detail his projects. http://www.handymanlyness.com/archives/auto/repair/cooling_system/index.htm l .... 92 minute estimated upload time for a 5 minute video...
