What does the manifold assembly do?

The air/gas mixture from the carb is drawn into the cylinder through the Inlet manifold. The inlet manifold is designed so that there is sufficient volume of air/gas to meet the engine needs at all revs. Each branch is designed to create minimum air turbulence thus allowing the intake mixture to be sufficiently abundant at high revs to prevent power tail off. The exhaust gasses are forced through the Exhaust manifold to the exhaust pipe. The exhaust manifold and exhaust system are designed to over handle the volume of exhaust gasses so that there is not a loss of power at high revs. Exhaust manifolds, helped by the cylinder firing order, have even heat dissipation to prevent cracking.

How do you replace the thermostat on a 2000 Pontiac Montana 3.4?

1. Drain cooling system. 2. Remove throttle body assy to make room. 3. Remove heat shield from the exhaust crossover pipe. 4. Disconnect crossover pipe from forward exhaust manifold. NOTE Crossover pipe should be slightly flexible enough to allow access to the bolts holding the water outlet housing on.

5. Remove hose, disconnect water temp sensor, and remove bolts from water outlet housing. 6. Remove outlet housing and replace the thermostat in the same direction as the original. (Also a good idea to replace the sensor since you already have the housing off the vehicle.)

Installation is the reverse.

Purge air from the cooling system by slightly loosening the two brass bolts (1 ea on the water pump and the thermostat housing) to allow trapped air to escape.

What is 1966 Pontiac Tempest convertible worth?

Edmunds and Kelley Blue Book don't offer estimated values of old cars any more. Their value is too hard to predict because condition varies so widely for a car 40+ years old.

Your best bet is to research other vehicles comparable to yours and look for trends in the prices. Ebay, Autotrader, and Oldride are good places to start.

If someone wants it badly enough you can name your price, but unless you have a pristine car, I wouldn't count on that.

Is it true that rear quarter panels from a 2dr hardtop Pontiac Bonneville will fit your 1965 Pontiac parisienne custom sport 2dr hardtop?

Use caution. 1965 Parisiennes, while styled like U.S. Pontiacs, were dimensioned and equipped like U.S. Chevrolets. The wheelbase on a '65 Bonneville was 123", I think. I don't believe that was the wheelbase on the '65 Parisienne, but that was 40 years ago. That said, when Pontiac dropped the full-size car in the very early 1980s and had to come back with a replacement ASAP, they brought the Parisienne back directly, with name, all dimensions and everything else the same. But by then, the car was equipped with "GM" engines: Buick 231 V/6s and Chevy/GM Canada 305 V/8s, not the 389 or 421 V/8 on Bonnevilles vs. the 230 L6, 283 V8 or 327 V8 (and one larger?) on the Parisienne.

What Pontiac Models were built by GM Canada in 1955?

The models available in 1955 were the Pontiac Pathfinder, Pathfinder Deluxe and the Laurentian. These pontiacs where available with a 261 Cubic inch STRAIGHT 6 or a 265 Cu inch V8.

The 265 V8 was the same as the new V8 introduced by Chevrolet in 1955. The 261 straight six was built for GMC pick-ups and trucks. It was the largest straight six ever installed in a passenger car in the post-War era.

The all-new 1955 Canadian Pontiac was basically a Chevrolet with Pontiac fenders. It rode on the shorter Chevrolet chassis with a 115 inch wheel base.

In the US, the all new Pontiac rode on longer 120 and 124 inch wheelbases. Also Pontiac introduced its own unique V8 in 1955 that became the basis for Pontiac's later 389 cubic inch workhorse used in everything from Catalinas to GTOs. Straight sixes and straight eights were discontinued after 1954 (except for the exceptional but underrated OHC six installed in some 1966-67 Pontiac LeMans and 1967-69 Firebirds).

How many quarts of oil does your 1965 Pontiac Tempest take it has a Straight 6 190CU 120hp?

Cars of this era normally held 5 quarts with a filter change. Just change the oil and filter and add 4 quarts. Run the engine for 2 minutes, shut it off, wait 45 minutes, and check the level. Add oil as necessary to fill it up. You now know how much it holds. Caution: Do not overfill as serious engine damage can occur from an overfull condition.

What Canadian Pontiacs were built with 409 engines?

All 1963 to early 1965 full-sized Pontiacs were available with the Chevy 409 cubic-inch V8. As Canadian Pontiacs utilized Chevrolet engines across the board the offerings were similar to Chevys of the same period from both the U.S. and Canada. The full-sized Pontiac lineup in Canada during this time included the low-line Strato Chief, mid-line Laurentian and flagship Parisienne. A Parisienne Custom Sport coupe was added to the line in 1964, which had styling features similar to the Grand Prix in the U.S. including grillework, rear deck trim and squared-off roofline with concave rear window. The bucket seats were also the same as the GPs which the dashboard was similar to all U.S.-built Pontiacs but the steering wheel and center console between the seats were Chevrolet items - the Chevy steering wheel and shift quadrant on top of the column rather than in the dash as in U.S. Pontiacs was necessitated due to the use of the Powerglide transmission (U.S. Pontiacs had Hydra-Matics). The console from the Impala SS was also utilized for this same reason. For 1963 and 1964, the 409 was available in three horsepower ratings including 340 with four-barrel carb and hydraulic lifters, 400 horsepower with four-barrel carb and solid lifters, and 425 with two four-barrels and solid lifters. The 340 horsepower engine was available with either the three-speed manual, four-speed manual or Powerglide, while the 400 and 425 horsepower options required the four-speed stick. Only the 340 and 400 horsepower 409s were offered for 1965. Production of the 409 engines ended in January, 1965. Replacing the 409 in mid-1965 was the new porcupine-head 396 cubic-inch V8 rated at 325 horsepower with four-barrel carb and hydraulic lifters or 425 horses with four barrels and solid lifters. The 325 horsepower 396 could be ordered with an equally-new (for Canadian Pontiacs) three-speed Turbo Hydra-Matic transmission.
