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.

1997 Nissan 2.4L Intake Gasket Replacement (Part 1) -EricTheCarGuy
In a way this is a sequel to the Nissan Altima Misfire Diagnosis Video. It would have been a REALLY long video if I posted both together. In fact I had to split this video into 2 parts as it is. This job isn't for the weak at heart. It took me most of the day to get it done. Most of the issues involve accessibility to the fasteners. Some are stuck down in there pretty good. I'm told this is a common issue with the 2.4L engine so you may run into this at some point. If you decide to do the repair yourself, this video can walk you through the process. For now, sit back, and watch me suffer. Here's some useful links for you.

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

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.

More Tutorials on my CHANNEL: http://www.youtube.com/user/moccina *This video is an EXPERIMENT I wanted to try on my car, and is for INFORMATIONAL purposes ONLY. This fix is for off-road use. The content shown in this video is not intended to encourage emissions test cheating. I enjoy the process of testing theory because you always learn something new, regardless of the outcome. Using a spark plug defouler kit, I install a "buffer" in between the downstream oxygen sensor and the catalytic converter. Quite often, frustrated car owners get the P0420 code for reasons other than a bad cat. I have heard of people getting the code just because they removed the converter and reinstalled it. It can also happen if you run your vehicle out of gas etc... etc... It is also common for car owners to get the P0420 code, replace the converter, and both o2 sensors-- only to have the code come back after 1000 miles or so. This can be a very frustrating, time consuming and of course-- expensive venture. Here is one way to resolve the issue. Good luck and have fun!

How To Change A Bad / Blown Head Gasket 3400 GM Overheats Thermostat Intake Manifold No Heat 3.4
Tried bleeding the air from your 3400 GM engine and it still overheats? Bad news. May be the head gasket or lower intake manifold gasket. Here are a few checks you can perform to find out where the problem may be. Signs of a bad intake manifold gasket. Leaking antifreeze behind the power steering pump or by the water neck / thermostat housing. Out the sides of the intake gasket. Milky oil, water coming inside the crankcase mixing with the oil turning it into a milkshake. Signs of a bad head gasket. You pull the radiator cap off when cold, you rev up the engine and fluid shoots out the neck with force. Exhaust gases pressurizing the coolant. Also a tell tale sign is while the engine is running the overflow bubbles consistently. Try and bleed the air out with the bleeder. You get fluid coming out and tighten it back down. Soon after you lose heat inside and need to bleed the air out again. After the car has warmed up and shut off, you hear a hissing noise. From the coolant or gasses coming out then will slowly hiss quiet until the pressure is relieved. Can't go over every scenario. Just ask questions here and we'll see about finding out the solution. tags: Chevrolet 3100 3.1 3400 3.4 Liter engine motor over heats overheats thermostat water pump gasket head intake manifold no heat water coming out overflow over flow how to change fix repair GM instructions VT247

How to replace your head and head gasket pt. 1
Here is how I changed the head and gasket on my 1992 Mazda B2600i pickup truck. This was the first time I have ever done a head gasket repair, and I have to say that most everything went according to plan. It was actually a lot easier than I anticipated. Total work time was about 14 hours, plus 2 weeks waiting for parts to arrive, that was the hardest part, haha. I am not especially mechanically trained or inclined, just interested in mechanics and the way they work, and that has helped me tremendously through procedures like this. I have found that since I want to learn about the way these parts connect, disconnect, and cooperate together, I have been able to do things to my cars and trucks that I never thought I could. Taking care of your own vehicles is definitely a rewarding activity, for many reasons. Obviously you save a lot of money, you can rely on yourself to get your truck running in a jam, and are rarely stranded on the side of the road for long. Also, with more people doing their own work on their cars, mechanic services will be devalued, thus making it more affordable for everyone ($100 per labor hour, can you believe that?!?) Also, there is definitely a sense of satisfaction which comes from a job well done, being an interested and capable and competent individual, and helping out your friends with their problems. I like to learn, I like to be handy and useful to others, I like to save money, and I like to get dirty, so whenever I can I wrench on my own trucks and motorcycles. A special thanks to the fine folks at the Mazdatruckin.com forum for all the technical articles. Hopefully you all can use this series of videos to help guide you through a similar procedure, really it is not that hard, and totally worth it. My expenses: head gasket $44 reman head $251 jug oil $12 jug coolant $14 manifold gasket set $14 TOTAL $335 That is about $1000 less than a mechanic would charge. Be brave, and do it yourself!
