Depends on your location and labor rates. I would suspect ~400-600 for a private mechanic, more at a dealer.

Most all of the vacuum lines will start from the intake manifold in the rear..........

No transmission drain plug. You have to drop the pan, then replace the filter and gasket.

The vents are controlled by vaccuum from the intake manifold. Check for a split rubber vac. hose on the manifold- Hope that helps.

To the left of the water inlet housing (thermostat housing) on the intake manifold

Drop the lower transmission pan Clean pan Replace filter and gasket

If it has the 4.3 ltr engine, the intake manifold is notorious for leaking at the back of the engine where you cannot see it. Try using a mirror at the rear of the intake manifold and look for wetness. Replacing the gaskey is the best fix.

Remove the transmission oil pan for access to filter Replace fluid, filter and gasket

I did an intake gasket on a 2004 astro awd 4 month ago. It not that hard but you got to remove everything around of the engine compartment. It took me maybe 5 hours. U got to be a little flex to work with it . GOod luck

The 4.3 liter Chevy Astro head gasket torque specification is 160 pounds. The head gasket bolts should be torqued in 40 pound intervals.

More than likely your intake gasket is at fault cusing the leak. This is common on 4.3 v6 engines.

On the intake manifold...check with a local parts store to see what a new one looks like first if necessary...Paul

This is a major repair and requires a skilled mechanic. You have to take the head off. and replace the gasket and get it put back on properly. Unfortunately, something made the gasket blow and once you get the engine apart you will likely see that the rings and pistons are worn and the valves need regrinding , etc, etc. I do not know about the Astro Van, but you may have to take the engine. If so, this is a major job , requiring some kind of hoist, in itself, as is putting it back in. You might do better by selling the car for parts.

If this question is about an automatic transmission, there is no drain bolt, you must remove the pan, which will not only allow you to drain the fluid, but also change the filter. You will have to replace the pan gasket. All the items that you need are in a kit, gasket & filter.

no heat and rising temp are simply a product of the coolant leaking (low). Most likely cause of leak (assuming all heater hoses have already been checked for leaks is the intake manifold gaskets. GM used solid PLASTIC gaskets on these motors with o-ring type seals around the ports and over time develop leaks between the cylinder head and intake manifold. A gasket set by Felpro is now made w/ steel inserts/molded rubber seals to rectify the problem. requires removal of intake manifold. I have done several of these with the same problem.

The MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure) sensor monitors the pressure inside the intake manifold and sends that info to the ECM (Engine Control Module). The ECM uses that info and input from other sensors to make the engine run its best under all conditions.
