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.

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.

no other. This is the Raptor review Ford doesn't want you to see: the Super
