This is almost always indicative of wear in the bearings that support the ends of the s/c shaft. It is about the only thing that goes wrong with the s/c - which is generally a good unit. Some shops will tell you that you must replace the whole thing - they are either lazy, incompetent or trying to take your money. There are places that will change the bearings on the shaft and it is fairly straightforward to do and not terribly expensive. The only trick is that GM will tell them the bearings are not available. This is when a good shop will take the bad bearing out and source the part themselves from a bearing supply specialist. I know an owner of a well established used car dealership who stocks a few of these bearings all the time and if he gets a s/c 3800 car in, he is all set to do a bearing swap with no fuss and little labour just to be sure his customers are kept happy.

I have a 1999 with the 3800 engine. The owner's manual says the horsepower is 205 without the supercharger and 240 with the supercharger.

don't think motor mounts will work - look for 92-99 3800

A 3800 engine is 3800 no mater what is mounted in. But a 2007 Pontiac G6 does not have a 3800 it has a 3500 (3.5L) V6.

The power steering box is on the right side behind the motor close to the finder wall. Get a flash light and look behind the motor and don't try to reach it while the motor is hot.

No, for one it is a totally different transmission and all supercharged 3800 models had an HD transmission.

a supercharger is run by belt,turbocharger is run by ex. gases.supercharger is better ........actually it depends on the motor and what kind of turbo/supercharger you put on it,so neither is technically better than the other

User Avatar

Need to remove, engine cover throttle body/intake drive belt fuel lines pcv valve hose spark plug wires for rear bank than you should be able to unbolt the supercharger
