Not much room to work there, eh? On GM cars, there's a procedure called "rotating the engine forward". It tethers the engine in a forward-leaning position so you can work on the backside, gives you a few inches more to reach back there.
On the radiator support is one or two "dog-bone" braces that attach to top of engine. Remove the long bolt from both braces (15mm wrench or socket on the bolt and nut). On one of the dog-bones is a hole on the underside, see it? You have to lever or pry the engine forward, and fit the long bolt you removed back into that same slot, but with the hole in the dog-bone there where the bolt goes through the hole when it is re-inserted. This pulls the top of engine over towards the radiator by 2 or 3 inches. That's all you get to work on the backside, but it usually suffices. Remove the exhaust pipe from the exhaust manifolds, and the bolts or nuts for the exhaust manifold, any other obstructions (the O2 sensor connector, for one), and pull the manifold off. Clean gasket surfaces, place new gasket, and re-install.
Good luck.

Good guess if it's not vacuum, it may be the intake manifold gasket allowing too much air into system. Easy teats to check is to spray some engine cleaner, or brake cleaner [ WD40 works too ] directly where the intake manifold bolts on. Making sure you are spraying the gasket. If gasket is bad, you will hear the idle go down or up. Any change at all tells the tale. . Be sure not to spray the exhaust manifold, just the intake manifold. This is the best test to perform Saves time and money. Let me know how you make out. PS Also spray vacuum hoses with the cleaner. Listen to motor at the same time
let me know how you do

GM never uses exhaust manifold gaskets, it is a machined fit. The rear main may be two piece in this year, it depends on what engine the car has, you never say, if so you must remove the oil pan. Also if it is a one piece you need the installation tool to install the seal, if you don't do it right it will likely leak even worse.

I need a how to for replacing the exhaust manifold for 95 lasable

Regaurdless of which of the two exhaust manifolds you are attempting to replace it will be necessary to remove the exhaust manifold crossover pipe that lays over the top of the transmission and bridges the front and rear monifolds. Once this piece is out of the way you should be able to use a wrench or a rachet and socket to remove the bolts fastening the appropriate manifold to the cylinder head. Always remember to replace the exhaust manifold gasket as well.

Need to remove and replace the intake manifold gaskets on a 2000 Buick Regal GS, with 3.8 Ltr Supercharged engine. The engine is leaking coolant from below the intake manifold.

it is a great deal of work. The molded gaskets breakdown with time. You'll want to change the two 90 degree elbows as well - they are available from a dealer for a reasonable price. Also, the blower gasket is likely shrunk up and /or blown out. And you might as well replace the valve cover gaskets too as they leak oil as they breakdown with heat and time.

I did all of this on mine. Even as a professional, it took me a good 6 hours.
