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.

What is the pushrod placement for a 1998 Pontiac grand prix 3.1 engine?

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.

How do you replace the water pump on a 1995 Pontiac Grand Am?

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.
