you go to a liscenced technician. its actually that easy... really...
It is possible to do this yourself. I am in theprocess of doing so on a grand am gt coupe with the 3.4 v6 60 degree engine. Be prepared for a lot of work and time if you choose to do it yourself. It is a MAJOR job but you can do it. I stress you can do it with the proper information and tools. You will need metric sockets, box end wrenches, a Chiltons or Haynes manual, someone to help and a good clean work area for removal of parts. Also use a digital camera to take pictures at each major junction point so you can refer back to them to reverse and put the engine back together. Also #2. Label every electrical wire, your firing order, headers must be replaced in exact order with their own respective rocker arms also.
With this all aside use Google to find a good faq about it or use grandamgt.com forums to find a few really good posts to follow. I will let you find them and not spam the links here. email me if you need more info.

5 to 7 depending on experience.
Remove the intake manifold retaining bolts on your 2003 Chevrolet Malibu. The manifold will come off. Remove the manifold gasket and clean the surface. Put the new manifold gasket on and reverse the process.
Pretty straight forward. You must remove the intake manifold in order to replace the gasket.
What engine? and ensure it is a bad gasket, not an intake plentum.
there is no upper intake gasket, only a front and rear
Remove the 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass intake manifold retaining bolts. The manifold will come off. Remove the old gasket. Clean the surface. Put the new intake gasket and tighten the intake manifold retaining bolts.
Remove the exhaust pipe from the exhaust manifold. Remove the manifold bolts. Remove the manifold. Remove the manifold gasket and clean the surface. Reverse the process to install the new manifold gasket.
Remove the retaining bolts from your 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse manifold. The manifold will come off. Remove the manifold gasket. Clean the surface and put the new manifold gasket on.
Irratic idling condition is indication of intake/inlet manifold gasket leak. Change gasket immediately. This particularly applies to EFI engines. Newaz.
take it to a mechanic
No absolutely not...
Yes, change both of them.
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.
The year, engine size and if it is the intake manifold or an exhaust manifold gaskets would help.
The only way to get to the intake manifold gasket is to take the head off. I'm working on it right now and so far that is all i can say
GO TO AUTOZONE.COM FOR THE REPAIR INFO.
a bad head gasket will result with compression and oil/coolant mixxing in the blocka badupper or lower intake gasket will result with coolant in crankcase or exaust manifold which causes white smoke comming out of the tail pipe...if your gonna change the upper or lower intake gaskets change them both at the same time... it saves you money in the long run
remove intake manifold.
Get a very good mechanic and dont plan on getting your car back the same day. Or buy a new gasket and remove the intake and diy.
Remove the manifold and change the gasket. And voila!!!
Several manufacturers built 3800. Without that information no answer can be given
If you need 2 ask how 2 change ur intake manifold gasket, u shouldn't be doing it urself, get some1 who knows what their doing! But if you really want 2 know (i don't own a grand prix i own a grand am) but ur probably gonna have 2 take off the throtlebody to change ur intake manifold gasket, which if you mess up in taking off and putting back on ur throtlebody its called - at the least ur car won't run at all or it will have a major gas leak, or u'll blow urself and ur car up! So i'd recommend that u don't do it urself.
