You will need to remove the exhaust manifold retaining bolts in your 1993 Chevy Astro. Remove the exhaust manifold. Remove the exhaust manifold gasket and clean the surface. Reverse the process to install the new exhaust manifold gasket.
That would probably cause it to run lean.
It is inside the upper intake manifold. It is attached to the fuel injector poppets with a bracket. To inspect/replace you must remove the upper intake manifold.
I have a mid size RV that's shaped like a van in the front. The intake was removed. Is it hard to put back on.
Remove the cylinder had from your 1997 Chevy Astro engine. Remove the head gasket and clean the surface. Put the new head gasket on and reverse the process.
it is part of the fuel injector which is under the upper intake manifold
I have a 97 Astro that is leaking. The dealer ship quoted a price of $650. minimum. I know there is a lower and upper manifold gaskets.I'm faced and with cruise control and fuel injection and I am a little aprehensive. But being out of options and low on funds due to uncle sam and cost of living increases and not alot of work I might have to take it on. Any help would be cool. I have been driving GM products for 30 years and have never had a intake manifold gasket blow.
Most all of the vacuum lines will start from the intake manifold in the rear..........
Depends on your location and labor rates. I would suspect ~400-600 for a private mechanic, more at a dealer.
It took 4.3 hours
No transmission drain plug. You have to drop the pan, then replace the filter and gasket.
To the left of the water inlet housing (thermostat housing) on the intake manifold
