you go to a liscenced technician. its actually that easy... really...

(ADDITION)

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.

Pretty straight forward. You must remove the intake manifold in order to replace the gasket.

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.

What engine? and ensure it is a bad gasket, not an intake plentum.

there is no upper intake gasket, only a front and rear

Irratic idling condition is indication of intake/inlet manifold gasket leak. Change gasket immediately. This particularly applies to EFI engines. Newaz.

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

User Avatar

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

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.

Several manufacturers built 3800. Without that information no answer can be given

Remove the manifold and change the gasket. And voila!!!

User Avatar

Which intake gasket? There are two gaskets between the intake manifold and the heads, one sealing the manifold to each head, plus a couple front/rear gaskets that seal out the crankcase oil. To get to those gaskets you need to remove the intake manifold. That involves removing a lot of peripheral stuff that's mounted on the manifold. Another gasket is between the manifold and the throttle body. That gasket is a lot easier, just remove the bolts holding down the throttle body, clean both surfaces and put the new gasket in place. If the engine is idling fast, sometimes it's just the EGR valve gasket. That's just two bolts then clean the surfaces and replace the gasket.

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.

Not sure what an XTL is, but usually when spark plugs are under an intake you should remove the intake to replace them. Don't forget to buy a new intake manifold gasket BEFORE you take the car apart.

User Avatar

Yes and and you are supposed to change the bolts holding the intake manifold also, so you do not strip the treads putting the bolts back on...old bolts are aluminum and wear easily need to throw away

User Avatar

if its a v6 and you take your time. it takes about 6-8 hours, depending on how fast you work !
