Hey Allan===It depends on what engine you have but both are probably the same labor wise. You really need guidance and the best is to get a manual from a parts store and it should have pictures and everything. GoodluckJoe
If you buy an Edelbrock, they come with instructions... Best tip is to insure a good seal, using gasket sealer. The front and rear are known to leak from not enough sealer....and make sure to use a torque wrench, tightening in order and to specs. Recheck and retorque if necessary at next oil change.
Remove the intake manifold retaining bolts from your 1996 Chevy Astro Van. Remove the manifold gasket and clean the surface. Reverse the process to install the new intake manifold gasket.

Assuming this is a 4.3L engine, the upper intake manifold gasket would be between the upper intake manifold and the lower intake manifold.

If you are sure that it did not freeze and crack the block, Then the intake manifold gasket is leaking. That is a common problem with the vortec Chevy engines. You need to replace the gasket with a factory Chevy gasket from the dealer.
It should take about an hour to change the intake manifold gasket. This part can be replaced by taking off the intake manifold cover, cleaning the old gasket off and sealing a new gasket in the space and tightening the bolts. When other things are in the way, like the alternator, it will take longer.

You either need a head gasket or intake gasket.
The head gasket on a 1999 Chevy Malibu is replaced by removing the coolant, intake manifold, and retaining bolts. The cylinder head can then be removed, the gasket replaced, and everything reassembled.

There are two knock sensors on a 2001 Chevy 1500 with the 5.3 V8. You have to remove the intake manifold, because both of them are located under it. it is best to replace both knock sensors at one time, and you will need an intake manifold gasket too.
