How much should it cost to replace an intake gasket on a 2000 Malibu or can it be done yourself?

Chevy Malibu AnswerYou can, but a lot of patience and mechanical inclination is necessary, and a good repair guide wouldn't hurt either. The gasket shouldn't cost more than $50-60, but taking the manifold off to replace the gasket could take upwards of 6-8 hours, IF you have a fair idea of what you're doing.Intake gasket replacements generally run between $600-900.That is about right. I have performed several and in the process of another gasket job now on 2000 Malibu. It is quite common on the 3.1 & 3.4 liter V6 lower intake gaskets to break right in the corner of the water jacket section.If you have not performed anything remotely close, I would not recommend it simply for the fact that the gaskets are located behind the pushrods. That means you have to remove them and reset the preloads on each pushrod in the lifter.Also to do the job properly, you should replace both the upper/lower gaskets, valve cover gaskets, thermostat and multiple seals especially the tube going into the thermostat housing from the rear.
