What is the labor cost of replacing the manifold gasket on a 1998 Chevy Malibu?
Intake manifold or exhaust? The complete job (parts and labor) is between $700-$900. depending on labor rates.
I'm sorry but i actually have a 99 Malibu and they do have a intake manifold gasket which are commonly mistaken for a head gasket when it blows. Mailbu's 97 to 2000 are bad for them blowing. it is located on top of the engine. it's still very expensive **tamnesha Some Chevy engines of that period didn't have a gasket; just a thin film of sealant.
Replacing the head gasket on a 1991 Chevy Cavalier do you need to use sealant on the gasket of the intake manifold and the exhaust manifold?
No, You don't put anything on Head, Exahust or intake gaskets. CJ actually you do put a 1/8'th inch bead of black silicone on the gasket to ensure no leaks occur and it also helps hold the gasket in place when your putting the intake manifold on. I'm a ford master technician, you ALWAYS use silicone when replacing intake and head gaskets. =DK
Where can the leak be in my 2003 Alero V6 if it isn't the water pump resovior radiator head gasket or hoses?
It is inside the engine between the intake manifold and engine block. Replacing it takes about ten hours for an experienced mechanic. An inexperienced mechanic like you would probably spend twenty hours before giving up and taking it to a pro. To help the pro reassemble your engine, at least write down the distributor position and label the pushrods.
What is the cost to replace an intake manifold on a 2004 Chevy Malibu maxx and how long should it last?
1998 Chevy Malibu 3.1 LV6 have replaced the Intake gasket last year This year yet again it is still leaking Coolant into the engine Is there anything that you can do to prevent this from happening?
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.
