There are a total of 12 pushrods on a GM 3.1 V6 engine from 94 through 2005. 6 are 5 & 3/8 the other 6 are 5 inches. They are for intake and exhaust pushrods. The best way is to install them and place them back where you took them off but if you didn't you will have to install them back and observe that the pushrods that are in a slight angle are the long ones. The short ones are straight down. You should always place your lifters, pushrods and valves where you took them off but I know that many people make mistakes since we are humans. Also look at your cylinder heads and see where the intake and exhaust valves are.
The exhaust pushrods are slightly longer than the intakes. To locate where to put the shorter intake pushrods look in the bores in the cylinder heads where the intake manifold lines up and you'll see the intake valve. Simply place all the short pushrods where you see the intake valves and you should be able to find where to install the rest.
parts and labor should run around $650
I have a 2002 Pontiac Gramd Am and its in the shop right now getting the Intake Manifold Gasket fixed on it! Its about $2000 with labor costs and everything! Rediculous! Its supposidly VERY common in these vehicles....They should do a re-call!
Intake manifold on top and exhaust manifold on the side.
It is cast right on the manifold if it is a factory manifold. 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2
The front exhaust manifold is right in front by the spark plugs. The rear manifold is behind the engine by the spark plugs.
On a small block Chevy the distributor goes through a hole in the intake manifold. On a Pontiac the distributor goes behind the intake manifold.
IT depends on if IT's an INTAKE or EXHAST MANIFOLD.
the thermostat is located in between the water mouth on top of the intake manifold and the manifold its self..
were is my 1999 pontiac grand am map sensor location
I'VE BEEN TOLD A SHORTCUT TO REPLACING THE WATER PUMP IS TO REMOVE THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD AND THE WATER PUMP WILL COME OUT EASILY. THEN OF COURSE, YOU HAVE THE EXPENSE OF REPLACING THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD GASKET AND EXHAUST O-RING GASKET. BUT A LOT CHEAPER THAN REMOVING THE WHOLE FRONT OF THE MOTOR. Try a chiltons manual or www.alldata.com If this is a quad four motor, you may not want to try this at home.
The 1999 Pontiac cylinder head gasket bolt torque specification is 160 pounds. The intake manifold bolt torque specification is 90 pounds.
The knock sensor for a Pontiac G6 is located on the side of the engine. It is mounted at the exhaust manifold.
Yes, They are the same. GM uses the same parts for Pontiac and Chevy, although the carb may be different therefore the carb from the Pontiac will not always work with a Chevy.
manifold gaskets only need to be replace if they leak, or if the manifold has been removed for some reason
I would suggest replacing it.
on top of the intake manifold left side
Is located in side right under manifold
It is on the intake manifold near the thermostat housing.
No, I do not think so as they are not the same engine.
need torque specs for 3.4 pontiac grand am intake and rocker arms
