It should take about an hour to change the intake manifold gasket. This part can be replaced by taking off the intake manifold cover, cleaning the old gasket off and sealing a new gasket in the space and tightening the bolts. When other things are in the way, like the alternator, it will take longer.

Using brake cleaner with the car on, spray around the gasket at each cylinder. if the idle changes then you have found your issue. FOr a how-to procedure with pictures email/message me.

Does the impala 2002 engine have gasket problems?

The GM 3100 and/or 3400 series engines have had a major problem with intake manifold gaskets for years. GM incorporated a hard plastic gasket with rubbers on it to seal the manifold. While these gaskets worked ok for awhile, as temperature differences in your engine takes place, i.e. running the car, shutting the car off, etc., the rubber material seperates from the plastic and the gasket fails. Normally you will not experience an external leak. Check your engine oil - if it looks like chocolate milk or if there is alot of milky buildup on the bottom side of your oil filler cap then you probably have antifreeze mixing with your engine oil. It is best to not drive your vehicle until you get this situation fixed. Also note that about 1 out of 10 vehicles that exhibit this condition may also need to have the cylinder head gaskets replaced - this is normally the case when the intake manifold is removed and the original gaskets do not look too bad.

If replacing the head gasket on a 1994 Honda Civic EX do you need just the head gasket or the whole head gasket set?

yes, you should replace ALL gaskets that you come across. When you release pressure on a gasket, the seal has now been lifted. You need to place all new gaskets so they can set and create a new seal. if you are just doing the head gasket, not getting the head surfaced or doing any other work- then getting the head gasket and any others piece by piece will be more economical- the head set will include intake/exhaust manifolds, valve cover, valve stem seals, etc... the valve cover gasket can be re-used if in good condition (not hardened), and you can pull the head on the d-series motor with intake and exhaust manifolds attached

Where is the PCV valve located on a 1989 Jeep Cherokee Laredo?

There is no - repeat - no PCV on the 4.0 motor and many others in this year range. The crankcase ventilation system is actually the smaller plastic hose plugged at the rear of the valve cover leading to the intake manifold. It has a sized hole to control the amount of air it draws through the intake. Installing a PCV into the larger hose at front will pressurize the crankcase and blow the weakest gasket, causing oil leaks and a series of gasket and seal changes that never solve the problem. Do not install a PCV unless you know for a fact the factory put it there.

Why would our intake manifold crack on our 2002 Saturn?

This is a common problem for all Saturn S-Series 2000-2002. The plastic intake manifold cracks at the coolant stems, even if the engine does not overheat. This is especially true in the southern half of the US (hotter climate). The intake manifold would need to be replaced, or repaired so no further damage will occur like overheating the engine. CarSaturn of Conyers, GA sells a repair kit to fix this problem- Worked for me. Link is below Good Luck!

How do you replace the differential gasket on a 1990 Chevy scottsdale 1500 series pickup truck?

If you look up under the back of the truck at the rear end housing, you will see a round plate with at least 10 bolts in it. Take all the bolts out. When you remove the plate grease will run out. Clean old gasket off, replace with new gasket, Put plate back on and fill with grase.

You just replaced the cylinder head gasket on your series 2A lightweight and it seems to be running OK but the oil has turned grey whats going on?

It sounds like coolant is getting in your oil. Recheck you intake manifold gasket.Hopefully the head gasket sealed up. Did you have the heads surfaced? Did you pressure test heads for leaks? When head gaskets go the heat can crack/warp cylinder heads.Mark. Also, make sure you buy original Rover gaskets, as many after market gaskets arn't up to the job. Rick.

To replace the head on your 89 525i do you have to replace it with the exact year and series?

On that year of 5-series. Yes it would have to be the same year and series because the '89 525i has the M20 engine whereas the rest of the 5 series, '90 and up have the M50 engine. I had to replace the head gasket in my '89 525I and I installed a brand new head and cam since I had everything out of it. If you need a new head, contact me at 404-824-7233 and I can see what I can come up with for you.
