Probably the intake manifold gasket needs replacement. Since the engine has large amount of oil under the intake manifold, and its gaskets are all that keeps the oil out of the intake manifold's vacume, that is a reasonable place to start thinking about. The PCV, ( positive crankcase valve ) could be stuck as well. That's easily checked by unplugging it from the engine and shaking it, and put your finger over the end of it with the engine idling. That valve is a very simple device, generally speaking, if it rattles when you shake it, and you can feel some vacume when you cover its engine side with your finger, it's OK. It has two manners of operation. It blocks the high engine vacume on deceleration, and allows some suction through the engine to reburn any blowby instead of allowing it to escape into the atmosphere.
If they are the exact same engine (3800 tuned port injection) then yes.
Alot of buick regals and lesabre's came with the 3800 engine
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 3800 V6 has a timing chain.
The knock sensor is located on the 95 oldsmobile 98 with a 3800 engine under the midpoint of the heads.
"3800" indicates that the car has the 3800 Series II V-6 engine (3.8L). The SE is the trim level which decodes as "Standard Edition." GP's without the 3800 badge are equipped with the base 3.1L V-6 engine.
the GTP model has the supercharged engine in it
The capacity of a 1996 engine is about 14 gallons
The 3800 engines with the superchargers require premium gas. Higher octane fuel prevents engine from self ignition of oxygen and gas causing engine misfire.
The 3800 Pontiac engine had bolt torque specification is 160 pounds. The head bolts should be torqued in 40 pound intervals.
Ineed the torque sequence and tightening specs for a 92 GM 3800 intake.
Mounted on the engine block.
years from 89-99 the 95 3800 will fit those cars will even fit into the olds royale series same engine good luck!
On the back side of the engine
on front of engine below water pump pully
3800 s2 is nice engine, and you could really place any engine in there with a large amount of modifications including chasis, mounts, trans and what not. If your vehicle came with the original 3800, that's the only engine you can replace it with without replacing tons of things.
3800? It needs a new harmonic balancer.
What was the situation with DexCool and the Chevrolet 3800 series II engine and how do i get the replacement intake manifold from Auto-zone and what is the part #
The car body has two "3800" badges on the front quarter panels if you have the 3800 engine. 3100 models have no badges. The badges indicate the engine size which matches the transmission paired with it.
