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.





3800 Lower Intake fix
Just some nuggets of wisdom for fixing a leaking lower intake gasket on a GM 3.8L Series 2 V6.





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...

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.

Best Head Gasket Sealer For Headgasket Leaks
http://www.trustmymechanic.com/auto-repair/4345/head-gasket-repair-this-wor ks/ (visit my site for more tips) Did your mechanic tell you your car has a headgasket leak? I get TONS of questions like this everyday and many of them are NOT head gasket leaks. I made this video to help you determine if you DO or DO NOT have an internal coolant leak. The FIRST, FIRST, FIRST thing you need to do is get a cooling system pressure test. This fast and cheap test will help you determine if you have an internal or external coolant leak. If you are absolutely sure there are no external leaks, and the radiator is not restricted and the electric radiator cooling fans are working, then try this awesome sealer. The product is called Engine Block Sealer, made by K&W. They have the old version in a hard metal can and their new and "improved" version in a green plastic bottle called Nano Technology. Both seem to work just fine. I do not personally use the product as the instructions on the can say (been using it my way for years with a 75-80% success rate and its much easier) My instructions for using K&W Block Sealer are: 1. Drain out all coolant from radiator as you possibly can. 2. Get a bucket and mix up the block sealer with tap water 3. Pour contents of the bucket into the radiator, top off with tap water 4. Then put 500 miles on the car as soon as you can 5. After 500 miles drain out the mix and reinstall coolant and water as needed The seal should be permanent You will NOT have boil over or freeze protection during this time period so please keep the engine from freezing and overheating. And no, I do not remove the spark plugs or the thermostat as the can says.. Just the steps above. Hope this helps, visit my sites for more cool tips and information http://www.TrustMyMechanic.com http://www.MyHonestMechanic.com
