u have a 5 3/8 and a 5 in push rod ur system should be shorter ones on the first one on back if its in car and it should be straight up and then the next should come in more at a angle it takes the 5 3/8 and it goes like that all the way through look at them the straighter it is takes the shorter ones the angles gets the longer ones i just rebuilt a 3.1 that's how i found out.........

actually a much simpler way of explaining it is.. the long push rods go in the guide behind the valve with an exhaust port, look at the exhaust manifold put the long ones where it connects to the head, then the short ones go on the ones with out

Short are intake, look in the intake ports. You can see the intake valve stems

The exhaust pushrods are slightly longer than the intakes. To locate where to put the shorter intake pushrods look in the bores in the cylinder heads where the intake manifold lines up and you'll see the intake valve. Simply place all the short pushrods where you see the intake valves and you should be able to find where to install the rest.

How do you remember which pushrods go where in a 1996 Pontiac Grand Am 3.1 liter engine you were replacing the intake manifold gasket and you broke one of the push rods?

There are a total of 12 pushrods on a GM 3.1 V6 engine from 94 through 2005. 6 are 5 & 3/8 the other 6 are 5 inches. They are for intake and exhaust pushrods. The best way is to install them and place them back where you took them off but if you didn't you will have to install them back and observe that the pushrods that are in a slight angle are the long ones. The short ones are straight down. You should always place your lifters, pushrods and valves where you took them off but I know that many people make mistakes since we are humans. Also look at your cylinder heads and see where the intake and exhaust valves are.
