Not on the head gaskets.
Remove carburator then intake manifold then cylinder heads
They can if the heads are cracked ,are the intake manifold gaskets were put on wrong when thay were installed. The heads themselves if thay are good heads will not cause overheating. You cannot put the head gaskets on wrong on a small block Chevy engine.
head gaskets??? warped heads? did you have them milled?
call your Chevy parts man at the dealer and he will be able to look it up for you.
Change the pistons, or change the cylinder heads, or mill down the cylinder heads.
on what part of the car?wheels,heads,intake manifold...you must be more specific!
From 1996 to late 1999 There was a problem with the intake gasket design on the Vortec engines. They have sents redesigned the gasket and now it does not leak as often. Intake Gaskets leaking is a common problem. Now the only time you have a problem with the heads is when the engine is over heated, and I mean HOT. Then the heads warp and the head gaskets leak or blow. Chevy just don't have problems with the heads on the V6 and V8 engines.
IF BOTH HEADS ARE REMOVED ABOUT 900.00
usally about 8 or 10 degrees BTDC will work fine to get it going.
Yes, the distributor has to come out to remove the intake manifold in order to remove the heads.
On the very top of the engine there is a intake manifold and the intake gaskets go between the intake and cylinder heads.
The heads don't necessarily need to be resurfaced when you change the head gaskets unless you think they may be cracked. They should be resurfaced every time the gaskets are changed, but you can get by without resurfacing them.
i retorqued my Chevrolet heads to 90 ft. lbs. but i also found if you use the specific torque pattern the gaskets will seat better....i don't torque my intake boltsAnswer65 lb.ft.
Short answer, remove the heads and replace the head gaskets. If you want to know exactly how to do this, then purchase an Hayne's or Chilton's repair manual for your car.
you will probably need to change heads gaskets
Sounds like you have two different types of gaskets? Use the gaskets that match your valve covers/heads. Having too many holes, or not enough will cause the gasket to prematurely fail or leak.
Sandwiched between the heads and the engine block.
The manifolds mount to the heads, and are pretty much interchangeable throughout the life of that engine. There were two different bolt patterns used from the factory, and most heads are drilled with both. It's a pretty easy fix to add the missing hole and tap it if you run into that problem. Just remember that you must use gaskets if the heads are aluminum.
The 283 has a larger bore diameter, so use the 283 head gaskets.
Yes, they are one and the same, displacement wise anyway. I'm going to look and see if the LS blocks are compatible with the say the LT's, and the 1st generation 350's, if they are different, might be, different block, heads, Trans mounting. 5.7=350ci in Chevrolet's.
Head gaskets are changed on a 97 Chevy Blazer by removing all engine accessories, taking off the intake manifold, removing the valve covers, and taking out the retaining bolts. The heads can then be lifted, the gasket removed, and a new gasket put in place.
The iron heads leak due to the expansion and contractions of the meterals that are difrent at difrent temp
look at you thermostat sticking that happened to me in my 79 chev or check for plugs in rad
