SOURCE: lower intake manifold gasket leaking 02 Olds Silhouette

This is basicly a very time consuming job rather than a physically hard one to complete. In order to replace the gasket you must remove the intake plenum,throttle body, and misc. vacuum hoses. The wiring harness connections must also be disconnected. Finally the intake manifold is exposed. The bolts holding the manifold to the block are removed exposing the leaking gasket. After removing the push rods and placing them in the correct order to be replaced the gasket and sealants can be removed. Finally replace everything in reverse order. Be sure to consult a GM manual for correct bolt torch specs. The correct specs for the manifold bolts usually come with the gasket. Make sure to change your oil a few times after this job in case any coolant entered the block. Also,change the thermostat and the oil seal on the distributor half shaft cap while you have everything off. Good Luck

Thermostat replacement 1991 olds silhouette

follow the big hose from the top of the radiator to where it goes into the engine. At the engine you will see typically 2 bolts to remove. under that is the thermostat. if it has rubber gasket, simply replace the thermostat and gasket. If it is a paper gasket, CLEAN THOROUGHLY, then rplace using some sort of gasket glue, many types available, they all will work.
